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.

Hazy golden color. Decent white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is intensely hoppy with notes of citrus. Flavor is also of citrus hopps and has a decent malt backbone. Bitter finish on this nice beer.

rjmc64 (27) - Deer Park, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours light gold, hazy, with quickly fading white head. Nose is unusual. Pungent at first with citrus notes. Explosion of grapefruity bitter citrus at first, followed by herbal notes and a long fading bitterness.

rotaman14 (235) - Potsdam, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Smells like lemon sorbet and pineapples. Fairly mild bitter taste with some malt sweetness as well, a long herbal aftertaste remains. Overall a very drinkable and approachable IPA, albeit lacking character.

Zekada (356) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2015
Pours clear orange with a small white head. The aroma is bit weird, and has a kind of estery feeling with some fruityness and a roundness. Taste is sweet and crisp with a gentle sense of hops. Palate is drinkable and pleasant. Overall an okay beer. Drinkable and fresh feeling

vandc01 (137) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Poured from a 12oz bottle picked up at total wine in Arizona. With a best by date of 3/29/2015 Must be a older bottle because the aroma is very faint. Pours a hazy orange with a half finger of head that I gone almost instantly. Drinks as a nice balanced beer with little lingering bitterness. A good beer, perhaps a fresher bottle would help.

Holmen1 (3021) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2015
Fra flaske på M2 Cardinal feb-15: etter Alesmith IPA ble dette som å hoppe etter Wirkola, så dette blir antakelig en urettferdig vurdering. Må prøve en hel flaske ved en annen aneldning. Beskjeden aroma, en god men litt flat ipa. Helt ok, og med en lang og god bitterhet i ettersmaken.

Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 09.02.15. Golden. Off-white. Aroma of American hops and pepper. American hops and dried.fruits in taste. Medium high bitterness. Decent and well-balanced taste. Good drinkability and not extreme in any way.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 355 ml bottle, as Smuttynose Finestkind IPA, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Nice hoppy aroma, notes of oranges. Pleasant hoppy flavour throughout, notes of orange peel and pine, well balanced.
