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.

laiti (6153) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2015
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.

355ml bottle. Pours orange golden with one finger of fine textured off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, light sweet and tropical fruits, some spice, hops, faint alcoholic note. Taste is similar with a strong bitter resinous hoppy finish. Excellent drinkability, medium carbonation, medium body. Very good IPA.

Mjp12 (493) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
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!
