Smuttynose Kindest Find
Smuttynose Kindest Find is an Imperial Red Ale that comes in at a big 9% ABV. It’s name and label are a twist on one of my favorite Smuttynose beers, their IPA “Finest Kind”.
This pours a bit of a surprising light red/caramel color, I guess for some reason I was expecting something a bit darker. The aroma is solid with some floral and fruity hops and a nice caramel malt backbone. Nice sweet malt in the taste, a hint of toffee, and some bitter pine hops. Getting a nice bit of little tropical sweetness in the finish as well which I like a lot.
Solid all around, well worth a bottle if you are a fan of either Red Ales or IPA’s.
