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.

Botella. Color amarillo anaranjado pálido, bastante límpida, espuma blanca de media formación con retención media y algo de rastro. Aromas a uva, malta, algo de resina y verduras cocidas y un poco a comida. En boca liquida- aceitosa, algo pegajosa y carbo media bastante viva. Mismas notas q en aroma donde domina mas la resina y la malta y menos la frutal. Final largo resinado. Para mi gusto flojea el aroma.

From a can purchased in Brookline, NH. Just a very nice IPA - more citrus-y than the average New England IPA. Nicely astringent, good body. Good carbonation, as well - seems a bit more lively from the can than the bottle. Does that make sense?

Honey colored translucent appearance. A slightly fruity (grape?) aroma. A pleasant, mellow hoppy (and slightly fruity) taste. A pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jksipa (477) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle labelled as Finestkind IPA. Pours a hazy medium gold with a small white head that leaves a bit of lace. Big skunky nose with grapefruit and citrus and a good dose of pine with a light caramel background. Flavour starts with a very light sweet honey and toffee before the big pine, citrus and mango bitterness takes over. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation and a long bitter finish. Nice hop combination.

Poured from bottle copper color with a one thin white head. Aromas of sweet citrus malt and piney hops. Taste is light and crisp and very smooth with a well balanced citrus honey lingering perfect hop finish.

MichaelAwesome (5193) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 21, 2015
Welch ein klassisches IPA mit den altbekannten Aromen von Hopfen, Zitrusfrüchten und altem Männerschweiß. Dazu diese feine Süffigkeit, eine milde Schärfe durch den etwas höheren Alkoholgehalt und ein ausbalancierter Abgang. Klasse.

McTapps (5195) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 21, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a clear deep golden colour with a low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and herbs with some citrus twist. Taste of fresh hops, herbs, citrus fruits, pine, flowers and oranges. Hoppy-dry finish. Very quaffable and tasty, enjoyed it.

12 oz bottle poured. Thanks Alex! Pours a bright glowing gold color with a lasting head. Sweet lemon citrus hops aroma. Some sweet tropical fruit flavor with a long citrus finish. Nice hop character too. All the good stuff here. Great IPA. Awesome.
