Smuttynose IPA

Is this beer supposed to be unfiltered? It tasted fine, but was full or residual sediment and particles. I know some people don't mind that, and I am ok with a little residual yeast and whatnot in the bottom of the bottle, but this was over the top. Didn't finish it.

3/15 #2 - I had to double up tonight because I couldn't stand this one staring at me any longer. All I can say is drinking this beer is like getting kicked in the mouth with a bag full of sour cherries. It will make you pucker up and come back for more.
