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 IBUs, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way thats not easy to find. We think theyll be quite pleased.

pours a rich hazy gold with a white lacy head. The aroma is bright and hoppy. Taste is very hoppy and bitter with a long bitter finish. Bolder than the average IPA. Pretty darn good!

Golden and hazy pour. Smells of resin and forest. Taste is well balanced resin and hop bitterness, a lot of dry malts. Medium bodied, a big classic IPA, very enjoyable.

Alpha10 (721) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2017
2017/04/05 - Pours a clear, medium gold colour with a soapy, white head slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits, light caramel with lightly spicy and floral hops. Taste is caramel, resin, tropical and citrus fruits with floral and herbal hops. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation and a dry, lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. A little more malt forward than I had expected, but good nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Its a fine beer, as in its fine, not like fancy fine. Smells nice and almost flowery, pours golden. The taste is light and thin; slightly hoppy but not bitter. I wouldnt say it satisfies a hop craving per say, but its more flavorful than some lesser beers. Good for your last night in town for the week before you abandon your sweet love for Florida sunshine.

A nicely balanced east coast IPA with a citrus zest nose and spicy hop bite. The light malt backbone stands up to the unusual hop bill, and this one is well thought out. An easy quaff that belies its stout 6.9%. I like the fact that this one eshews the resinous mj component of west coast IPAs while still showcasing its altogether different take on hops. Excellent.

Pours light gold with a decent white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is pine and tropical fruit. The taste is quite bitter with a hint of sweetness. There are notes of tropical fruit, pine, grass, grain and resin. Its a pretty decent IPA with some distinct flavours and plenty of IBUs.

"Finestkind" bottle from the Beer Store. Peachy honey pour, fairly clear and lustrous; faintly sandy head. Aroma is big toffee malt up front, with peach, plum, slightly overripe tropical fruit following. Taste is where this beer shines - toffee sweetness up front, but not cloying. Fresh, flowery and piney hops kick in fairly early on and stick around for most of the drink. Sticky palate works for the flavour profile. While I prefer my IPAs a little less malt-heavy, this is a solid, easy-drinking brew.
