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.

MichaelAwesome (5167) - 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 (5170) - 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.

ceason (20) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a hazy dark orange with an average size fizzy white head and some sediment. The fresh aroma of sweet malt and citrus hops is quite nice and pleasant. Taste is citrusy hops all the way -- very grapefruity -- with a touch of honey and sweet malt. But it’s mostly hops. Mostly. I found the aftertaste a little harsh, almost too citrusy.

12oz bottle from Beermerchants.com. Orange amber, good head. Boiled sweet & hop aroma & flavour. Bitter sweet hoppy aftertaste. A solid IPA.
