3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ One Pint as "Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA". Aroma has tropical fruits, minerals and some sweet toffee notes. Flavour is heavy and sweet with tropical fruits, caramel, grapefruit and mellow gluey tones. Creamy and smooth palate with foamy feeling. Finishes with biscuits and hay. Lingering bitterness in aftertaste. A very American IPA at all its sweetness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great ipa , has that sherbet aroma, with pineapple and mango, enough malt to give a decent colour, perfect carbonation. Docked 1 taste point,as I would a slightly less well balanced, more aggressively hoppy finish .

Really enjoyed this one! Fuzzy honey pour with a tightly packed ivory crown. Spicy, floral, evergreen and citrus aroma. Lots of depth and complexity here. Not the enamel peeling IPA from the west coast but enjoy the subtle nuances and balance. A go-to for sure!
