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.

ceason (10) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a hazy dark orange with an average size fizzy white head and some sediment. The fresh aroma of sweet malt and citrus hops is quite nice and pleasant. Taste is citrusy hops all the way -- very grapefruity -- with a touch of honey and sweet malt. But it’s mostly hops. Mostly. I found the aftertaste a little harsh, almost too citrusy.

Homer321 (2493) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle thanks to BMart. Nose is a super grapefruit Bomb that is awesome. Light perfume and orange. Slightly hazy orange color. Small white head. Taste is a citrus explosion. Really FUCKEN good. Just hits all the hop citrus flavors without being an overly bitter pith Bomb. I forgot how good this is.
