2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Miami. Clear amber color, medium-sized white head. Cardboard, sweet alcohol aroma in the nose. Medium-bodied, rich palate. Punch of alcohol, herbal bitterness, pine with long aftertaste. Grassy and grainy. This is quite heavy on booze.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
High alcohol and strong pine hop makes this beer pretty one sided. Cloudy orange with a decent foam. Bitter and lingering.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
More mild hop smell than expected...almost none....slightly colloidal appearance..taste is strong hops and bitterness...in a weird way (unique hops?) VERY Floral....prob the most out of any beer I’ve had...not a fan off the bat but the floral buttery finish earns points on uniqueness...medium hot alcohol taste to boot

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
My beer of choice. Extremely underrated probably because of its extremely sharp bite. It is massively hopped: strong and bitter. But leaves a nice (if powerful) aftertaste. But forget the taste: this is the only beer that takes me where I want to be. Two of them, and I’m in a great place.

I’ve got to express some admiration. Swamp Ape comes at you with balls-out bitterness and alcohol. I just wish there was more style with all the substance. This is an uncoordinated attack. The resinous hops hit you at all full force and the malt backbone tastes off somehow - musty, maybe? That’s too bad, too, because the aroma is decent. On the nose, you get caramel malt and dank hops. I love my Imperial IPA’s and tend to think I’m an easy scorer on them. Not this time.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Caramel, malty, hops.
A- Amber color, hazy liquid, off white head.
T- Caramel, bready, bitter, cigar smoke.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finsh.
O- Not as bitter or nasty as most previous reviews seem to point towards. Yes, it’s bitter, but I think I must have had a bottle with some age on it because a lot of caramel and malty backbone came through. Not bad, but I don’t want another.

Pours a clear bright orange. A very weak double IPA. A faint citrus and sugar/rum aroma. A weak taste of citrus, hops, pine, and some spices. No lingering bitter hop aftertaste.
