From the 650 ml. bottle dated Jan 2014. Sampled on March 16, 2014 so reasonably fresh.

The pour is a cloudy golden amber color with a quick white head that becomes a ring for the remainder of the session.

The aroma has a short burst of toasted biscuit malts but then the four hops that are used to brew this really kick in and emit a floral, grassy scent.

Light body mostly but also smooth.

Like the taste, the flavor evolves from a quick introduction of caramel and biscuit malts to an explosion of citrus and biter hops that linger quite some time at the finish. Smuttynose says they do not want to call this a session beer but in the end that's what it is.

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.
