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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a medium-thick head. Nice clean aroma of citrusy hops. The flavor is a bit less assertively hoppy, with some cereal notes and a bit of caramel character from the malts. Citrus and pine hops. A lot of sweetness on the finish, and a hint of red bean, oddly. A pretty nice IPA.

Bottle in the North Bar Social, Otley. Pours golden with an off white head. Nice pine hop aroma. The taste is light spice and bitter resinous pine plus some caramel. A little on the thin side, but tasty, light and refreshing.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Decent hoppy beer with nice aroma and flavor.
