My first from Smuttynose. Poured out to a cloudy golden yellow color with a nice 1/2 inch head and rings of lace around the glass. Medium high carbonation. Aromas of hops, pine and malt were detected. Taste was powerful and direct; flavors of hops and grapefruit dominate, with hints of grass and earth being trampled by the nearly overwhelming bitterness on the palate. Mouthfeel was slightly syrup like, and quite hearty, but went down rather smooth. Drinkability is only average, as if one were to consume more that a bottle of this at a sitting, they would likely be very ill shortly after. A worthy IPA. Thanks to rousee for the sample. I've got an additional bottle that I am going to age and see what happends...
