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.

Love the new dry hop addition, the flavor has improved quite a bit since they move to the new location. Fantasic, East Coast IPA!

Bright citrus notes float up from this copper colored IPA. A nice fluffy head shows in a generous pour. Taste is a crisp bitter citrus goodness, with a little pine and floral mixed in. A very delicious IPA.

dlihcsnatas (296) - Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Golden brew with smell and taste of citrus hops and a slight grapefruit that is really good. Beer has a light enough feel that it can be chugged but for the tad bit extra cost than many comparable IPA’s don’t want to do that. Good brew, little more expensive than others of simular quility but will purchase a case or more next time if it’s on sale.

Non mi ha fatto una grandissima impressione questa IPA a stelle e strisce, però ampiamente potabile.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. A clear pale to medium amber beer, with an average sized, frothy/creamy, fully lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin, pine needles, grapefruit), with a slight touch of alcohol. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/oily texture, average/lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate to heavy bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Extremely pleasant IPA, relatively fresh and with an almost brutal bitterness. Solid.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Some sweet pine and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with hop resin.
