Smuttynose IPA "Finest Kind"
Smuttynose Brewing Co.
12 oz bottle with a best before date of January 2011 poured into a Bell's tulip.
Bright orange-yellow, moderately clear, with a white head that receded to a rather thin one with excellent lacing.
Faintly grassy, resiny, earthy hops. Strangely, I detect some pils like aroma! Shouldn't be earthy or pils like, but there is an European angle here in my opinion.
Very faint, below usual, touch of sweetness to begin, some citrus, assertively bitter taste & after taste. Certainly hop forward. Bitterness bomb, actually. Not bitter in a bad way but bitter, and trust me, I've had my share of bitter (Devil Dancer etc.).
Well carbonated, with some maltiness, so I'll call it medium and balanced.
