I've tried a lot. If it's hoppy you want, bitter, flavor and aroma. I think smuttynose is one of the best....
Agreed, one of my go-to IPAs. Relatively cheaply priced also when compared to some of the others (Stone, Founders, etc) at least around me.
I had a keg of it. I cried when it kicked!
Beer makes me pee.
Not bad at all, usually drink home grew when not a a bar. Fresh hop front, clean notes, good hop residual. Would buy again.
I have recently tried a newer Brewer from Massachusetts called Opa-Opa they make an IPA that will go nose to nose with Smuttynose I bought a keg of it for the old kegeratore, but Smuttynose desurves a big standing ovation as well, dam fine beer.
