Smuttynose looks great, with ample head sitting atop a clear, golden straw coloured body. I made the mistake of tasting this beer before smelling it, so I'm having a hard time detecting much of anything. All I can say is that it doesn't smell bad. The taste, however, is ridiculous. As in good. Huge citrus/pine flavour present due to some amazing hops. My guess would be cascade or something similar. Super bitter, and yet you can still detect a balancing malt presence. Almost perfect. Nice mouthfeel, dry, good carbonation. Overall, this is a fantastic beer.
