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.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 2009-09-04, draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 8-5-7-5-15=40
Hazy deep blond color; creamy head; sticky lace. The aroma well mixes quality hops and some malt sweetness; the fruity side includes oranges first, and light grapefruit too. Correct body, with strong dry toffee flavor; the mouthfeel is quite smooth; the bitterness is very high, and the hops brings in a lot of resins first, but also bitter oranges. Very solid and powerful IPA, full of character.

2005-09-25, bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 7-4-7-5-14=37
Amber color. The aroma has some nice hops and some Fragola grape touch. Medium body, strong bitterness, well hoppy, aromatic European hops as well… Very long final, a bit dry.
