Style:
American IPA
Brewer:
Smuttynose Brewing
Alcohol:
6.9%
Manufacturer:
Smuttynose Brewing Co. Portsmouth, NH
Country:
USA
Description:  

Portsmouth is a colonial era seaport town, so it goes to follow that sooner or later we'd brew an India Pale Ale as a tribute to those big, hoppy 19th century ales that made the long sea voyage from England's temperate shores, 'round the Cape of Good Hope, to the sultry climes of the faraway East Indies.

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.

11/15/13 - This beer pours a straw color with a moderate amount of head. On tasting, it has a light malt flavor with a moderately strong hops bitterness. The use of the Simcoe, Santiams, and Amarillo hops gives it a very nice hops taste as well. A very nice American IPA offering.
