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 good hoppy IPA, but just doesn’t measure up to flavor of Victory brews. Gotta love the labeling though.

hotstuff (4508) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Rated on 10-26-2015. This bottled beer formed a small white head that is mostly lasting, golden transparent body, slow rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, some pine hops, fruity, light earthiness, grapefruit, bitter, and caramel malt. This beer’s flavor is moderately bitter, citrus and herbal hops, grapefruit, malt, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this is a medium bodied IPA. Overall, this beer is very drinkable and has a moderate bitter aftertaste. I enjoyed rating this beer as it is well brewed and it is a beer I would definitely partake in again and it is worth trying.

En på alla sätt lagom IPA, välbalanserad mellan sötma, fruktighet och beska. Inget som sticker ut, men heller inget som saknas. En av de bättre allround ölen.

lello4ever (330) - ITALY - OCT 16, 2015
Ipa molto interessante. Colore dorato limpido con ampia schiuma. Al naso floreale e agrumato. Al sorso iniziale risalta il malto e una nota caramellata che solo dopo viene equilibrata dallamaro del luppolo. Carbonazione perfetta. Buona.

Jado (701) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2015
355 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy orange body with a fine and lasting white head. Orange, pine, biscuits and flowers in the nose. In the mouth, there’s more orange and sweet malt up front before a well integrated pine and pepper bitterness comes through. Lingering piney finish with a spicy aftertaste. Nice.
