Smuttynose Brewing Co. “Durty”

      I’ve touched on this before, but once again I found myself over looking excellent beers They see me rollin...from from East Coast breweries. It’s so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of exotic brand-new, seasonal, and specialty beers of the West and Mid-West. I have to remind myself to not neglect all the excellent “local” beer I have here on the Right-Coast! Case in point…
      Smuttynose Brewing Co.‘s “DURTY” Brown IPA is a big hoppy complex brew. It pours a dark beige with a thick and creamy off-white head. The aroma is citrusy, with piney hops and mild chocolate notes. The taste is intense with caramel, vanilla, shortbread, cocoa, malt and sticky citrus hops. The 8.4% abv is big but not overshadowing. The finish is dry with chocolate covered hops! We’ll that’s what it’s tastes like. This is not a beer to miss! Here’s to Good Beers!
