Smuttynose IPA poured a semi-hazy, light amber color with a finger width, white head. The aroma was clean and crisp, with plenty of hops and light fruit. The body has light malt up front with a fruity sweetness and a decent helping of hops. The finish is hoppy with a really, really long lingering dryness.
Overall, I think this is a very good IPA. I am not usually a fan of overly hoppy or dry beers but I loved this beer. The body is balanced and I really liked the bone-dry finish.
