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.

A beer with citrus hops, Smuttynose IPA is an orange amber color, clear, and has a light bitterness. This beer has a light body, slick texture and soft carbonation, with a long finish.

Buena IPA AMERICANA. Fresca, pero con un sabor perduradero que se mantiene intensamente

rodenbach99 (3255) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bouteille meilleure avant le 03/10/15 et présentée sous le nom de Finestkind IPA. Une IPA commerciale simple mais tout de même bien faite. Elle est moyennement amère avec du coco et du miel. Correct.

SlovakSniper (3347) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bouteille qui porte le nom de Finestkind IPA. Meilleure avant le 03/10/15. Une bière dorée qui montre une petite tête accrocheuse. Au nez, rien de vraiment épatant. Tout est en discrétion. Touche délicatement citronnée et houblon épicé. Base maltée plutôt pâle. Saveurs qui abondent dans le même sens. Amertume en fin de bouche bien modérée. Corps agréable. Texture légèrement huileuse. Pétillement valable. Ordinaire mais certainement pas méchante.

marcelhannover (2) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2014 does not count
Gekauft im Craft Beer Contor Hannover. Ausgeprägte Aromen von Zitrusfrüchten und irgendwo auch von Lychee, angenehme Kohlensäure, nicht zu bitter, ganz stark im Abgang. Sehr gut trinkbar, ein IPA, das ich mir öfter mal geben werde!

annunz123 (880) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 12, 2014
I’m usually a big fan of Smuttynose, but I found this to be pretty ordinary. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to distinguish it from the many, many other IPAs out there.

JonMoore (1895) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle - clear gold with nice frothy white head. Aroma of juicy fruit, citrus hops, light pine. Nice citrus hoppy bitter flavour, nice bite to it. Solid malts, long bitter finish, dry ish, mod carbonation, medium bodied. Good stuff.

Vighals (1389) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2014
Klar lys brun med lavt hvitt skum. Lukter humle, ananas og fersken. Dominant bitterhet men noe fruktsødme ligger bak. Bitter medium kullsyre.

ippopotamo36 (348) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 7, 2014
On tap at Macche-Rome. Pours pale golden hazy with a tick and slightly off-white head. Very fresh one I assume by the nose and mouth. Nose: juicy tangerine, lemon juicy notes. Mouth: crispy, just a hint of amber malt caramel feel but fresh and easy drinking. Bitter enough. Just perfect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
