Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a dark mahogany, with a two inch dark tan head that leaves loads of webby lacing. Smell is citrus hops, pine, carmel, and a little bread. Taste just burst with big citrus hops, with everything else in a supporting role, with a hint of roasted chocolate malts in the finish. Body is medium large, with lots of life,not dry, and easy drinking. This is excellent, reminds me of a big, brown version of Zoe Ale. Please make this again, because it is a treat.

A-Pours a turbid, durty brown. Head is quite full and light brown. Head retains quite well. It leaves plenty of lacing.

S-Awesome aromatics. An appetizing mix of tropically fruited hops and deep brown malts. Floral hoppiness too. Very good mixture of the aromas. They really go well together.

T-Just as awesome. At its base it is a malty Brown Ale. However the plentiful hop flavors make this an awesome hybrid. Chocolatey and malty along with a giant dosage of beautiful hops. The flavors mesh incredibly well. So pleased with the expression of the hops here.

M-Mediumm bodied and creamy. Soft carbonation. Bitter. Very drinkable.

O/D-Delicious. I hope they brew this again. Probably my favorite Smutty brew. Unique and incredibly tasty.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours the lightest brown, or ruby in the right light. Creamy one finger off white head. Aroma is of pungent hops with a caramel sweetness as a backbone. Taste is an intense hoppy bomb, but not overly bitter and very well balanced. Plenty of piney, floral, and citrusy hops contending to be noticed here. Everything comes together to create an exceptional ipa. The brown ale elements of the beer provide a great malt backbone to balance the hops without becoming overly sweet. Creamy, creamy mouthfeel. Reminded me a ton of Surly Furious...which is a good thing!
