Ah Smutty... how I go through love/hate phases with you and your mineral sometimes earthy tasting brews:
A- Poured a nice orange-amber with a thin head lacing
S- A nice very hoppy aroma with a good strong full malt backing
T- Starts off malt sweetness forward, then the hop bitterness kicks in and gets even more bitter as it finishes.
M- Medium bodied with a little effervescence.
D- Today, this one hit the spot. But, other days... not so much. It's a good round and full IPA, but some days it seems a bit too metallic and mineral tasting. All Smutty's seem to have this earthy harshness to them... maybe just the water used. Sometimes I like that, other times not.
