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.

Aroma is of pine, mild grapefruit and maybe apple. Burnt orange body with a hint of gold with a slight haze. The head starts of fluffy and about an inch thick and reluctantly fades. Bitterness is up front with malt character following it up. Faint caramel sweetness.

reebtogi (4608) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some tropical and caramel notes. Taste is a pine and grapefruit hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation. Overall, this is a great tasting IPA that is well balanced and I highly recommend it to others.
