I'm a huge fan of Smuttynose, but this one is really disappointing. Pours with a thin head that dissipates quickly to a ring of froth. Aroma is light, nondescript. Grapefruit like bitterness and a thin mouth feel with little malt backbone, leaves a strange apricot like flavor lingering on the palate. I get that they were trying to make a session brew, but I think it fails due to the taste - I couldn't put more than 1 or 2 of these down. I'd much rather have a Smutty Nose Finest Kind.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

Full on sticky frothing, mildly dull golden hue. Citrus pith and wild flowers with some biscuity malt make for a very aromatic nose. Snappy crispness in a fluffy body. Assertive hoppiness start to finish, bitterness is pretty sharp but lets the malt make camp. Underlying breadiness. Lots of citrus rind with a yeasty earthiness.

Super hoppy session beer, fun to knock back if you are into intensely hoppy beers.
