Sweetgrass India Pale Ale has been a GTBC staple since early 2002. Brewed solidly in the American IPA style, Sweetgrass is crisp and fragrant with a generous yet smooth hop character. XX Sweetgrass is all that twice over, with double the malt and double the hops--an astonishing three pounds per barrel in the kettle and another pound per barrel of "dry-hops" added after fermentation.
The hops provide citrusy, resinous spiciness, making this beer a great match for any bold, flavorful food.

Bottle: The pour yields a moderate head that is fleeting over a cider-colored body; grassy and citric aroma, heavy pineapple sweet background; the flavor is initially sweet followed by substatial and long bitter finish; not much actual flavor, just pale malt and heavy cascade hoppiness; hot alcohol and grating finish; little to be impressed with here.

NABA ’05: Nose of bright citrusy hops, they are everywhere with little malts. The flavor is overhopped with tons of bitterness and extreme sweetness. Not a long drinker but good for a sample. I could sit around sniffing it but I learned my lesson after drinking it.
