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.

Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Nose of citrus, hops, grapefruit, banana and some spice. Flavor is very full with lots of bitterness. Probably one of my favorite IPA’s.

Slightly hazy amber color with medium white head. Citrusy aroma, resiny and grapefruity, slightly pine. Taste follows the aroma, citrus, resin, pine and grapefruit, but very boozy for being a 6.9% beer. Moderate bitterness in the aftertaste.

kaserov (223) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 28, 2016
Color dorado oscuro casi ámbar, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor. Poca carbonatación. Aroma mínimo (como a hierba mojada y algo de humedad). El sabor contiene malta y lúpulo a partes iguales, con amargor final decente, algo resinoso. Nada del otro mundo.

Hoppy_Luke (1286) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Amerykańska IPA z foką w tle ma bursztynowy kolor i sporą, białą pianę. Aromat bardzo przyjemny i intensywny. Owoce tropikalne i nuty leśne. Nieco karmelu. W smaku jest świetnie! Słodkie owoce mieszają się z cytrusami, tworząc bardzo przyjemną w odbiorze mieszankę. Solidna, ale pozostawiająca miły posmak w ustach, goryczka. Wysycenie średnie. Bardzo pijalne, alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Nie ma się naprawdę do czego przyczepić.

Franckg (1279) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016
Bouteille avec un BB du 10/11/2016 indiquée comme "Finest Kind IPA". Robe dorée claire sans col de mousse. Apparence liquoreuse. Arômes d’orange, mangue et ananas avec malt légèrement caramélisé. Note de pamplemousse et résine de pin. En bouche, saveurs de pamplemousse et orange, quelques zestes d’agrumes et pointes de résine bien amère. Malt plus effacé. Finale brève et sèche. Texture collante et corps mince.

Hazy orange beer with a white head. Fruity, citrus aroma. Very fresh and crispy. I like how the bitterness grows in the after taste. Some grassy notes but also the grape fruity bitterness is there. Easy to drink yet very flavorful and nice.
