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 hazy amber with floaters. Hoppy citrus fruit aroma with grapefruit, orange peel, lemon and lime. The maltiness is mostly wet grain like with some sweeter hints. The flavour is spicy and hoppy, mostly citrus with grapefruit up front. Full bitterness. Dry finish. Ok malty backbone but maybe just a tiny bit to thin bodied to be perfect.

Not bad. I must preface this rating with a disclosure of my dislike of IPAs. Smells heavily of grapefruit (at best), and quite a bitter taste. Not sure what all the fuss is about this beer -- it’s good and balanced for an IPA but by no means at the level of Dogfish Head. The IPA craze still eludes me.

well had a bottle at incutravs and can also say, that the smell was that of a overused biffy cooking for a bout a month in 100 plus degrees, putrid smell BLAKKKKK but minus that a good ipa nice grapefruits and bite man needed a gas mask though!

I gave the aroma a 2. I kid you not that this smellied like a toliet sitting in the sun. Not sure if it was bad batch or what, but good lord it stunk. Getting past that it was quite tasty, decent amount of hop bit, nice aftertaste. But good lord, that smell, yar. Still have 4 more to drink, maybe the smell will subside, if not for the stink, i would have been a big fan!

This beer was poured into a flute glass with a minor head. It has a cloudy color with a lot of particulats in it. the flavor is very bitter and a malty and very hoppy flavor like an IPA should be. i really enjoy the bite it makes the beer.

smutty-fellas... well done. this is the best ipa in new england. the grapefruit punch settles nicely amongst a malt lick of cleanliness. i’ll drink this one til the day i die. super drinkable.

Simple, raw, green, resinous hop aromas and flavors. Good pale malt base. This is beer minimalism. Hop juice!

Good work done here. Very flavorful, hoppy, and yet parch your lips dry. Drank this guy out of a bottle and enjoyed the balance and drinkability.
