Pours hazy honey golden with a nice buff head. Aroma is not strong, but promises some hops. Boldly hoppy flavor has woody, resiny and grapefruit components. Texture has average viscosity but fizz to spare. Swamp Ape beer is useful and good!

Bottle. Pours golden Amber with a white head. Sweet malts, light fruity hops, earthy and toffee notes, with light bitterness. Tastes a bit out of date, but there’s no date on the bottle to confirm. Not that good.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle pours a murky orange with lots of frothy, sudsy white head. Nose has dried orange peel, some kumquat, a little tea, a little bit of garbage. Smells incredibly artificial. Flavor is worse, overly bitter, plastic, kumquat, unripened orange. Sort of has that unripened chardonnay grape thing. Chunky, soapy, astringent finish.

Balanced floral/citrus nose, oranges and dandelions detected. Clear amber, headless. Honey comb and orange flavor, medium body. Orange peel in the end. Respectable DIPA.

12oz bottle, thanks to chudwick! Hazy golden orange color. Finger of off-white head. Leaves decent lace. Not much in the nose, kind of a musty metallic. In the flavor, sort of a piney hoppy aroma. Bigger bready malt. Bigger bitter, mildly astringent at first, light to moderate sweet, kind of a more dry taste in the finish, light alcohol warmth in the finish. Bigger body. Lighter carbonation. More dry finish. An OK DIPA, not too bad. Delivers the hop, along with a wallop of biscuity malt. Better than expected, better than rates indicate... Nothing outrightly wrong with it. Piney hop gets better as I go, some grapefruit citrus and bright tropical notes come out. Pretty assertive. Aftertaste is like lighter fluid, but it’s not awful as it sounds.
