Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2013
Tap at Moon River. It pours clear golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose is aromatic, fresh pine, rosemary, pithy citrus and light toast. The taste is toasty, earth, pine, crisp bitterness, light rosemary, sweet orange/tangerine and some resin with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A bit of a love/hate beer I think. I personally think the rosemary somehow works with the base beer. Good balance and rather drinkable. Nice work.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Draft at Moon River. Hazy golden color pour with a frothy white head. Bog rosemary and herbal aroma, hint os sweetness and piney hops. Rosemary flavor with malty sweetness and piney bitter hops at the end. Smooth sweet carbonation and a medium body. In Savannah you can take beers togo so I took this one.

nuplastikk (5797) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Imperial pint at Moon River. Hazy orange-tan, thin oily head. This is a really great IPA, expertly crafted. Clean toasty golden malt and a citrus hop feel that is really broad, and further broadened by the rosemary, which surprisingly complements the beer quite nicely, adding some cooling minty tones. Lemongrass, lime, mint. Creative and quite satisfyingly clean and bold. World Class.

blipp (8275) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Draft. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Herbal and floral hoppy aroma. The flavor has an interesting combination of rosemary and floral hops. Good dose of hoppy bitterness with the spices nicely complimenting. Nice dry finish.

burg326 (5384) - Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
On draft at Moon River, poured an amber color, with HUGE rosemary aromas that overpower any hops that might have been in the beer. Taste is all rosemary, nothing else.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft @ brewpub. Rosemary on the nose very herbal. Pours amber gold with a white head. Herbal rosemary upfront with piney hops Very interesting but a little too herbal.

dchmela (3013) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Tap at Moon River. Pours a nice gold. Hoppy citrus, with big floral notes of rosemary in the aroma. Body is nice light and crisp with lots of citrus and rosemary hints popping through.

changeup45 (1729) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2011
This was a surprise addition to the sampler I tried at the brewpub. I was told it’s Swamp Fox recipe with rosemary added. A little lighter appearance than the base beer; more of a gold than copper. Big rosemary influence in both the aroma and flavor. There’s no mistaking it. Soapy and citrusy notes mix in. Not as bitter as the regular version, and I wouldn’t really call that one all that aggressively bitter. Nice dry finish. This is good but the rosemary was a bit much and I prefer the regular version.

Not sure which IPA I had. On tap at the brew pub, Savannah. Peaches + oranges in nose, a bit tropical and mild. Spotty nice lacing pattern. Orange. Thick, syrupy, + same flavors as nose. Dry hoppiness hit late. Outstanding.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2011
{thoughts} Bold, crisp and aggressive IPA that paints outside the lines and does it well.

{elements} Clear, deep copper hue; short, white froth. Immediate orange-peach-rosemary aroma tantalizes alongside spicy green cardamom and thick, biscuity malts. Creamy sweetness at just the right level, soft and brushing acidity; staunch sawtooth bitterness is forceful and echoes without being obscene; rosemary is well integrated though obvious in the long herbal-piny aftertaste. Prickly, pinpoint carbonation; medium-full bodied; creamy texture. Draft.
