COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 65 IBU’s, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that’s not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

Lightly sparkling, clear golden. 2 finger white, frothy head. Sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet with tropical fruits and caramel malt, strawberry, applejam. Bittersweet, light to medium body, long drying finish with grapefruit and lingering strawberry and tropicality. Very nice, balanced, nice arc of flavors and drying palate, lively.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, noin parin sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on vahvana trooppisen hedelmäinen makeus ja toffeemaisuus, heikompana havuista ja makeamman marjaista tuntua. Maku on trooppisen ja makeamman sitruksisen hedelmäinen, puumainen sekä hieman makean marjainen. Makeus on yllättäen enemmän hedelmistä ja marjaista ei karamellista. Suutuntuma on katkerahko, loppua kohti kuivempi ja keskitäyteläinen. Hieman erilainen IPA, jossa ei maussa karamellia ole juurikaan, mutta makeutta kuitenkin suht paljon. Hyvin hedelmäinen.
