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.

RRistow12 (219) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
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 (2229) - 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.

BoostIPA (1186) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2014
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.

From bottle. Clean golden, orange. Full white head. Dirty grapefruit on nose. Some soil and pine. Medium (or just under) body. Bitter throughout. Bright citrus with decent, biscuit malt backing. Straightforward.

An East Coast contender, this has the hops in the aroma, and flavor, with great balanced on how the bitterness finishes.
