Notes/Commercial Description:
You could say, then, that Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 75 IBU's, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that's not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

Poured into regular pint glass.

A - Poured slightly hazy golden amber color with small head that quickly dissipated leaving light lacing around the glass.

S - Very citrusy, floral and hoppy. Almost perfect.

T - Starts off with citrus zest and some earthy flavor and immediately transforms into pine hops with a bitter finish and aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied with average carbonation.

O - Very crisp, refreshing and enjoyable IPA. True to its style. I would highly recommend it.
