COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firsthand accounts describe an intense beast with a potent aroma and bite. Proof that the elusive monster exists? Or proof that brewing with five distinct varieties of hops creates an unbelievable, relentlessly hopped India Pale Ale? One taste and you’ll know, Swamp Ape is for real.

This was a pretty poor double ipa. Tons of alcohol present more than anything else. The aftertaste is really quite poor and it’s too sweet.

A very nice beer that pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma is hops,citrus and caramel. A good and hoppy beer that is both earthy and sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I prefer to drink DIPAs and ran across this beer In Florida. It was a pleasant surprise and would drink more. This is not the end-all DIPA, but Is a nice addition to my list of options. A sweet finish which veers away from the slightly bitter ending I prefer like I find in Victory DIrt Wolf.

Bammers54 (39) - Camberely, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
On tap, a big in your face beer, pretty good balance for such a high ABV, the alcohol was slightly overpowering the hops which spoilt the overall effect I think. Well made but just to strong for its own good

jdb288 (480) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Fresh bottle. Pours hazy orange with slight white head. Aroma is mixed citrus, wet hops. Taste is hop resin, biscuit, alcohol. A bit more earthy than I prefer in my DIPAs.

arminjewell (6069) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, orange peel, toffee, oxidized/cardboard, some hints of grain, spice, slight lemon. Taste is a mix of caramel, herbal, oxidized, some red fruit, finishing sweet. Blech.

gmellison (411) - Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a clear tangerine color with a small white head. aroma is really bready and sugary. Flavor is bitter as fuuu, really syrupy and doesn’t hide the booze at all. I could go without drinking this again.

Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
Golden in the glass. The beer is sweet. Very sweet and nicely hopped. Nice floral, but way too sweet. The aftertaste is sticky sweet and floral. --> Way too sweet in the body! --> 9/8/9/8
