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.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Great smell of hops, some acidic fruit, and a hint of malt. Light copper haze color with a white head that lasts throughout the drink. Bitter at first but finishes very smooth considering the amount of hops that give the pleasant taste to this brew. Overall a great Smuttynose brew, would highly recommend it to any hop head.

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.

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.

12oz bottle, best by 07/19/16... Just in time. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, grass. Flavor is caramel, grapefruit, grass. Grapefruit pith bitterness in the finish. Best by dating must be fairly conservative, this is still balanced and drinking well.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a hazy golden color with a white head and lacing. The aroma is floral hops and citrus. The taste is big on hops with hints of grapefruit and bread. There’s a lot of nice, dry bitterness with some subtle sweetness. Considering the alcohol content, it’s pretty refreshing and drinkable. This is a good IPA.

It has flavors of floral, toast, light caramel, and floral. It has a moderate body and has a moderately bitter finish. Overall this is a very favorable and easy drinking IPA.

Clear, golden yellow colour and some offwhite lacing. Very citrusy aroma with some pine and hops in the background. Soft, hoppy taste with some malts as well, nice bitter finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel is soft, medium carbonation, light body. Very solid, typical IPA.

Hauska ja leppoisa. Tasapainoinen vai tasapaksu, jää latteaksi lopulta, mutta seurustelujuomana oiva valinta.
