Smutty Nose has never disappointed so far, always in the top quartile in any give style.
This is their flagship DIPA. As DIPAs go, this is a great one.
A: Cloudy medium amber body with lots of lacing and a lasting head.
S: Excellent aromas of pine and round hops (rather than sharp grapefruit ones), tending to an old world, English style - very good. Very sappy, oily, piney, woody. A marine like acetone from the alcohol, but pleasant.
T: Lots of English Malty sweetness, caramel & Honey. Hops take over and drive a long, bitter finish with pine, grasses, herbs, hay, and a bit of orange rind. Dry finish.
MF: One of the best. Creamy, medium to full body, serious, satifying and begging for another. Definitely let this one warm to cellar temperature and drink from a tulip.
Plays well on the palate. Up there in the top tier of DIPAs.
