  • Smuttynose Finestkind IPA
    rated 4.1 1 month ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 9 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Nose predominately hops,lots of pine and citrus, a thin wiff of vanilla and malt. Smallish white head sits leaves mediocre lace and sits atop a hazy medium amber/light copper body. Mouth feel is medium bodied carbonation a bit flat. Flavor, well this is a beer for the hop heads, nothing delicate of balanced here, its straight ahead hops...a big mouthful of bitter, hint of deep over-ripe fig or raisin, very bitter finish, all appropriate to an American IPA. Well done for what it is. Rerate:2022 head lasts with a nice skim coat and leaves lovely lace. Carbonation is spot on.

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 8

    Very minimal nose presented slight hint of malted mil and an odd mustyness.. An almost opaque dark brown body with hints of Ruby highlight tapped by a tan two finger head that leaves lovely lace. Mouth is almost watery and quite carbonated. The flavor is long and drying and quite clean at the finish. Slight hints of coffee grounds and dark cooking chocolate. There's a tiny bit of sweetness that is perfectly balanced with a lot of roasted malt and a nice degree of bittering. This is really a killer Brew I just wish it presented a little more on the nose. And it's very very sessionable.

    The nose is hazier than the beer that is to say it's got that tropical fruit thing going on in and a bit of dank bong water in a good way. Hell apricot body fully hazed with a skim coat that leaves beautiful lace. I like the mouth on this it's almost clean like an old fashioned IPA a little slick perfect carbonation. Flavor follows the nose mild tropical fruits make a nice bitter finish long-lasting pretty clean. There's a little bit of barnyard funk going on here again it's that dank bong water.

    Big long-lasting nose of overripe tropical fruits and some very suitable dankness I'm guessing that ladder comes from the Nelson hops. Fogged pale apricot body topped with a skim coat that leaves suds but not really lace on the side of the glass. Mouth is nice a little creamy good carbonation level with just a hint of tingle almost chewy, almost chewy. Hello I'm weary of NEIPA's this is pretty tasty. A dank dryness coming through at the end really changes this up. Hints of cinnamon and brown sugar at first but levels out with a tartness that finishes dry and as I mentioned dank. I like it.
