Tap flight at House of Beer. Nutmeg color in the glass with a white head. Interesting aroma that reminds me of Grape Kool Aid. The flavor is very similar. Very unique but pleasing. Finish is more like a traditional IPA. Soft, fruity, and flavorful.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old rating. Solid IPA, but nothing mind blowing. Good citrus and piney hops. Moderately sweet malty body. Balanced. Good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg @ Swamp Head. Russet red with a white head. Big and sweet nose. Strong toffee and marzipan. Grass shoots. Lemon and resinous pine. Similar flavor. Quite sweet. Sickly. Sort of surprising given this brewery’s easy-drinking nature of their lineup. Medium body, active carb. Not my thing.

This is a truly great IPA. Very hoppy, but not a hop bomb. Good balance. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Swamp Head / Gainesville FL --- Good looking clear medium caramel malt color, full white head cover, globs and pieces of lace. Taste is sweet malt with strong citrus hops that enter in the palate. Just a bit of malt re-appears in the finish. Typical IPA, but still well done.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A respectable offering. As far as IPAs go, it’s pretty balanced. Has a sweeter malt nose with plenty of hop coming through. Flavor is similar, hop forward but with moderate caramel notes. Resinous on the mouth with pine in there. Fuller body, but still drinkable.

From a growler filled at the brewery. Pours a darker amber color with white head. Citrus, floral notes, grass, and some pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with hop resin and just a hint of malt character.

Have been trying this beer in Ocala, FL for awhile and think it's a good beer, less hoppy than I normally like but still a solid beer

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange pour with creamy off white head. Aroma is large citrus/resiny hops with medium bready maltiness. Flavor is semi sweet malt start with a nice resiny bitter finish. This beer just misses some malty balance that would have put it over the top. Medium body with good carbonation. very nice @bp

Rated from notes taken on 3 July 2013 -- On tap at the Salty Duck, FWB FL. This is my favorite IPA from Swamp Head, although my experience with this brewery is limited. Well balanced IPA. Nice hops with a solid malt backbone.
