April bottled-on date, moderately chilled, poured into a Harpoon IPA glass.
Pours a hazy, cloudy rust-orange with a large pillowy head. Plenty of sticky lacing left behind as the brew goes down.
Aromas of grapefruit, grass and a little pine jumping out of the glass. The body is medium and the carbonation light and pleasant.
Taste is everything it has been building up to. Hoppy bite upfront quickly balanced by a touch of caramel maltiness. Is this a perfect IPA?
This is my first straight 5's review and given the fact that I have drank little else in the past month I'm confident with that. I think a good analogy could be made by comparing this brew to a CD; Smuttynose IPA is that new album that you just can't take out of the CD player and when you do try to listen to something else you're just waiting to pop the Smutty back in. This will definately be in heavy rotation for the rest of the summer, at least.
