Smuttynose Brewing Company
Smuttynose is proud to introduce our eighteenth Short Batch Beer, "Durty," a brown IPA! Thereâ€™s no denying that IPA is king of the craft beer world right now. The style is getting so popular that even the big brewers are attempting their own versions, while IPA sub-styles, like session IPA, double IPA, white IPA and black IPA, continue to be created and defined. Brown IPAs combine the caramel and nutty-biscuity flavors of a brown ale, with an American IPA-sized does of hops; itâ€™s pretty straight-forward, but pretty delicious. On to the beer...Durty is a big beer (8.4% abv, 55 IBU) packed full of big hops. Weâ€™ve used Polaris, a new German high alpha variety for bittering, followed by American hop icon, Nugget, for the flavor additions and finally, a boatload of Simcoe post-fermentation for dry-hopping. The malt selection isnâ€™t too different from Old Brown Dog, but itâ€™s a bit heavier on the nutty character and dark cocoa notes.
