3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has been reviewed by many others so I'm not going to break it down in typical fashion - this has already been done ad-nauseum. I would just like to say thay I do not feel it has been represented here entirely fairly. While I would admit that it should rate only fair AS AN IMPERIAL IPA, I do find it to be a very drinkable beer and I would certainly encourage anyone to sample it for yourself. I say this as a tried and true Imperial IPA fan (my favorite style). Perhaps one should take it in the spirit of Florida as a hot weather brew which perhaps should sacrifice a little purity of 'type' for drinkability. As a final note, I've drank this from tap in Florida and remember it as being better than the bottled version.

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!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 Tastes a bit out of date, but there’s no date on the bottle to confirm.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.
