4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was a really enjoyable beer, totally unique and unlike anything else I’ve tried. It has a rich, chocolately, caramel aroma, with a medium roastiness. Upon sipping, it creates an almost paradoxical sensation, with the intense hoppiness of an IPA combined with a rich caramel depth, a bit of dark chocolate, and a sort of dry roastiness, only a moderate roast. The hops have a floral character and are really delightful. Each sip is exciting and this is one of those beers that is so intense that I can’t drink it much faster than sipping it, but I also don’t want to stop sipping it because the aroma and sensations on the palate are so enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, but deep brown body, the cap has settled to a thin filmy ring. Aromas of citrus hops and caramel. Flavor is much the same as the aromas with the caramel malts losing out to the hops. Nice slightly bitter finish, good roast. Overall a rather nice beer from Smuttynose.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass
This is not my favorite Smuttynose offering. I was impressed with the "durty" brown murky color but I thought the flavor was overpowering.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’ve never smelled a beer that smelled "dead on" like Tide laundry detergent. No kidding. If I was blind folded and asked to identify which was the beer and which was the laundry detergent by smell, it would be a toss up.
Smuttynose makes some of my favorite beers, this just isn’t one of them. Probably some of you out there will enjoy this. Just my opinion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cerveza de color marrón con una buena espuma de color beige, denso y perdurable. El aroma es levemente tostado y con bastante lúpulo, caramelo y cítricos. El sabor es amargo y cítrico en todo con caramelo con un final prolongado y amargo. Buena cerveza.
