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.

beerbastard (715) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12oz bottle. Cloudy pale gold with little lace. Grassy nose, followed by pine and citrus in the back. Nice modest malt sweetness that parallels the hop flavors and bitterness. Bitter peppery finish.

From a bottle. Poured with very little head which dissipated quickly. Tastes of resin and pine with hints of caramel. Pleasantly bitter. No lacing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (321) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Nicely bitter IPA with some grapefruit and other citrus to start. Nice oily texture that never gets soapy. Finish is a tad short but all in all this is a fine kind of brew.

Does everything well in moderation. Citrus and resin on the nose, lasts to the bottom of the glass. Lightly salted pretzel, enough bitterness to finish clean. Summer IPA comes mind but this works on a semi-cold day in the northeast. Very, very good. Great value, especially for a 12 pack.

bubblehouse (475) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Has a really nice aroma. Has a bit of a funky taste and a little bit of a bite but still pretty enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2014 Finest kind is not really an understatement. I love this hop combination and the malt is just right. My go to IPA in the summer.

gunnar (5607) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours almost clear dark golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of malts, honey and flowery hops.Taste is light sweet malty, soon overpowered by crisp hops, flowery and grapefruity, rather short lived taste. Dry and fruity mouthfeel
