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.

It pours a golden orange/yellow and gives the same color body while leaving some awesome speckled light lacing. The head is about an inch thick and its white. The smell has the hops in front, malts are very subdued. The taste is the same. The mouthfeel is about a light to medium, could have about half the sixpack within a session. Overall, very good American IPA, seek it out if you like this style and grab some barbeque food to go along with it. Great stuff.

Hauska ja leppoisa. Tasapainoinen vai tasapaksu, jää latteaksi lopulta, mutta seurustelujuomana oiva valinta.

From 2 cans of a pick a six, I have bought a few six packs of this before in bottles not sure why I didn’t get around to rating it. It’s thick and sandy up front, spicy, juicy, citrus, and very dry at the end.

In short: nice american IPA.
Pours clear pale gold with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, little lacing. Flower blossom nose, citrusy hops. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is bitter, citrusy, dry aftertaste. Good.

This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent golden orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty and malt hop. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of bitter mild citrus and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

What to say about this beer? Well the bottle itself makes you curious. In the glass the beer looks hazy and has a nice foamlayer. It smells a bit fruity, it tastes a bit fruity but it is the bittersweet aftertaste that convinces me.

Bottle. Hazy golden body, big beige head with ok retention and lacing. Strong fruity aroma of oranges, grapefruit zest, peaches, mango and passion fruit. Moderately bitter kick upfront: grapefruit zest, pine needles, orange candies, mango. Good.
