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.

light hazy gold, medium white head, quite a bit of lace. very airy aroma of malt with perhaps a touch of citrus. flavor is musty malt and a strong, dry hop bitternes, and creamy notes. full bodied, pleasingly bitter hop finish that lingers. surprisingly mouth-filling, nicely bitter.

It has a rich golden colored body with a slight haze. On top there is an off white or egg shell colored head that stands up tall and hangs on well. As I drink it makes perfect clingy lace rings on the pint glass. Deep citrusy hop notes just fill my nose with some floral pine sneaking in there as well. It has a firm hop character right up front which is backed up by a nice pale malt base. The pale malt gives a good balance with out too much sweetness. This lets the hops come out and shine with loads of delicious citrusy grapefruit and mild pine like flavor notes. The hop bitterness coats the palate and slowly fades off the tongue long into the finish. It has a good medium to full body with a spot on level of carbonation.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with white head. Strange aroma at first that I didn't find to appealing that then faded. Almost a mildew type smell. Some floral bitter aroma too. Taste is much better than the aroma. Very well balanced. Nice citrusy and floral bitterness with a bready caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied. Overall a great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid IPA. 12 oz bottle. Pours just on the orange side of golden. Solid white head that lasts. Lots going on- grass, pine, orange, grapefruit- definitely finishes on the bitter side. Leaves mouth a bit dry. Pretty well balanced overall- hops are a nice change from the usual suspects. Simcoe one of my favorites for subtle, clean IPA flavor. Totally enjoyable.

hirigalzkar (2231) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Draught @ Akkurat. A mal dominated IPA that is way too sweet. There are also some disturbing and non fitting bready notes. Very bitter. Notes of grapefruit and herbs.

Nice and grassy with plenty of bitterness. Smooth and tantalizing. A beer I would drink everyday.

Pours a hazed good with an enormous head. Aromas of mineral water and floral hops. Taste is bitter and semi dry. Flavors of bitter flowers, light cracker malt. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter. No tropical hop expression. Pretty middle of the road.
