Ok, first off I read the review from the bro's on this one like a year ago, and I finally found it like a year later. So of course I had to buy a 6 pack of it because the bro's and everyone rated it so highly.
Pours a nice deep pale from a 12oz bottle to a grand pilsner glass. Nice pillow like foamy 1 inch head. sticky looking lace.
Smell is very piney. Like really piney. Smells great, got some citrus flowery hoppy goodness going on here. Smells like a good IPA.
Taste is nice. you get a nice hoppy sting with this one. The body is perfectly balanced to it though. big time piney hop aftertaste kicking in. This beer is a great IPA. I have 3 favorite IPA's: Sierra Nevada Torpedo is prolly my number one choice...Great Divide Titan IPA is Fantastic too. And last but surely not least: Sierra Nevada Celebration ale! I would definitely rank Smuttynose up there with those 3. A very nice IPA. I will surely buy this one again and I'm glad I bought a 6 pack :)
