Back to Smuttynose, another one of my favorite brewers. This time around, I sampled their IPA. This beer poured a golden amber, and was crisp, dry, hoppy and damned refreshing. Smuttynose bottles this unfiltered, so there was some haziness when it was poured. Some people find that unappealing but it does not bother me at all. If anything, I find it contributes to the mouth feel of the beer, which was silky smooth here. It had a decent head, which dissipated quickly. This is a smooth beer that can be knocked back all day and/or all night. As I noted before, Smuttynose is widely available throughout the Northeast, and is always reasonably priced. This bomber bottle set me back $2.99, which is probably not much more than the same size bottle of Corona or Bud, and this is so much better. I grade it an 8/10.
