3.31/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance: Hazy golden orange color with a finger off white head

Smell: Slight pine and citrus

Taste: Grassy, pine, and bitter grapefruit

Mouthfeel: Light body, but extremely bitter with no sweetness or anything to balance it out.

Overall: As with Finest Kind and even more so here, its all bitter with no real hop presence to back it up. Put some citrus/tropical hop varieties into your hoppy beers Smuttynose! I will be sticking to their darker offerings from now on.

3.6/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Chill hazed golden with lingering layer if ivory foam. Resin, toasted caramel malt, and hints of citrus form the aroma. Flavor is grassy, resiny, and bitter, with just enough crackery malt for support. Floral hops emerge in the finish. Too bitter dominant for my liking.

3.54/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured out a very slightly clouded medium gold with a short-lasting fizzier white head. The aroma starts out pretty pleasant with some nice pine hops notes. The taste, though, is pretty middling. There is a light generic hops aspect and maybe a slight malt characteristic. It's not bad, but there isn't anything really interesting about it either. It has a nice body and a nice bite from the hops. All-in-all, this is just a middle of the road session-strength ale. There are better examples out there (21st Amendment's Bitter American and Stone's Go to IPA are good examples). Get one of those if you can.
