3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Farrah’s in Gainesville, FL. The pour is a hazed strawberry iced tea amber with a small, dense, rocky, yellow. Nice retention and sheety lace. Aroma is fresh melon, sort of funky citrus and potpourri reminiscent of some mild sour beers or even mild Brett beers. The taste is cinnamon, lemon, bitter grapefruit and orange peel. The body is ultra malt forward with so much body and richness it is nearly impossible to drink. Palate is a little chalky. Overall I just don’t know how you are even supposed to drink this. Abv is verging on DIPA and sugar content is probably out the roof. A pint of this is just way too much.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an golden color with amber tint, nice strong white head with good lacing. Aromas of citrus and hops followed by the same flavors. This beer has a great balance to it with the malt playing off the hops very nicely. Medium bodied with a nice lingering finish. It is 7.3 abv, but very drinkable. A very good offering from Swamp Head.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 So-so amber IPA that more resembles a weak pale ale than an IPA; not particularly strong aromas of citrus hops, medium caramel sweetness. It’s pretty decent, but boring.

POurs off amber with bitter citrus notes that being even more indicative within the mouthfeel. medium bodied, this beer gives you a nice and easy finish.
