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.

Hazy amber pour with an average eggshell head that has moderate staying power. Lots of caramel on the nose with hints of pine and grapefruit with a bready edge. A little sweet on entry with some pleasant citrus and spruce character. Nice, even caramel maltiness that sort of falls apart as the bitterness kicks in on the finish. Long, satisfyingly bitter finish that has quite a foresty feel to it. Pretty decent brew although I think this bottle has some age on it.

fhoublon (314) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Dégustée (bouteille) le 8 juin 2012 au Mondial de la Bière 2012 à Montréal (D4C4KPPO). Bière blonde dorée foncée. Col crémeux blanc très épais et très persistant. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Légère odeur de houblon. Très douce, peu sucrée, très amère. Goût un peu épicé et de pamplemousse. Plutôt mince, devient lassante assez vite.

Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Nose is yeast and lemon. Aromas are citrus (lemon), herbal hops and caramel, with a hint if pine. Sweet-bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Disappointing. Maybe skunked. Pours cloudy with some sediment. Nose is weak, but more on the malt side. Taste is a touch of caramel sweetness and then bitter finish. Not well structured. Usually love Smuttynose, but not this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Assertive citrusy hop aroma, with a slight haze. The flavor is all hops, with bitterness to support the malt.
