Now known as Smuttynose Durty Mud Season Hoppy Brown Ale

Smuttynose is proud to introduce our eighteenth Short Batch Beer, "Durty," a brown IPA! There’s no denying that IPA is king of the craft beer world right now. The style is getting so popular that even the big brewers are attempting their own versions, while IPA sub-styles, like session IPA, double IPA, white IPA and black IPA, continue to be created and defined. Brown IPAs combine the caramel and nutty-biscuity flavors of a brown ale, with an American IPA-sized does of hops; it’s pretty straight-forward, but pretty delicious. On to the beer...Durty is a big beer (8.4% abv, 55 IBU) packed full of big hops. We’ve used Polaris, a new German high alpha variety for bittering, followed by American hop icon, Nugget, for the flavor additions and finally, a boatload of Simcoe post-fermentation for dry-hopping. The malt selection isn’t too different from Old Brown Dog, but it’s a bit heavier on the nutty character and dark cocoa notes.

Otroligt smakrik, mörk färg. Ganska söt och relativt besk. Hmm, en öl som är intensiv upplevelse. För dig som vill ha lite mer.

eljebi (62) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2016
Deliciosa combinación de las notas maltosas y a frutos secos de las brown ale con un lupulado potente, protagonizado por el simcoe en la nariz. Nueces, tofe y especias con un toque bien amargo, resinoso y presencia de alcohol

javiercrasher (273) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2016
De color marrón y espuma de media duración. Mucho aroma a pino, con algo de caramelo. Cuerpo medio. En boca entra dulce tipo toffee para dar paso al lúpulo como una imperial ipa.. Alcohólica y resinosa con final amargo y duradero. Brutal!!

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle Thanks to vyvvy for this one Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Nose seems a bit oxidized lite aromatic alcohol musty hops and chocolate. Flavors show a big wallop of alcohol and toasted chocolate. Hops are there but very woody. Body is somewhat lite for this high of abv Witch may be the reason it’s pretty hot.

Smuttynose Durty is, well, interesting. Pours a murky brown like mud with a nice head. Light floral aroma with caramel overtones. Taste is caramel with floral hop notes trying to shine through -- like someone mixed an average brown with a decent IPA. Durty is a good deScription and it isn’t too bad, but not something I would seek out again.
