Swamp Head Sciaenhops is an IPA wannabe that isn’t. Faint but pleasant floral aroma from a nice pour. Hop florals come through the overriding bitterness that obscures the flavor profile. It is like an IPA that went too far. Good but not exceptional.

Dark golden colored pour. Slight off-white head. Little bit of lacing. Big hop aroma with some citrus notes and a malty background. Taste is a nice malty presence with a ton of hops and citrus. Sweet, yet dry. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh bottle from the brewery. Pours a deep dark red color with a big fluffy off white head that just lingers. Won't go away. Nice big hop presence on the nose with pine and light citrus and a good bit of dankness to go along with earthy grassiness and a nice sweet smelling caramel backbone. Lots of dank earthiness to the flavor with pine, a caramel backbone, some light fruit to sweeten the flavor up. The mouthfeel is slick and resinous but has a nice drying finish. The only complaint here is that the carbonation is on the low side for a brew like this. A little more bubbly would have helped out an otherwise very nice red ale with a great punch of bitter hops. Worth having again.

Bottle thanks to Sean, unfortunately list in my rot box for a while. Gusher. Pours hazy red amber, medium tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is caramel pine. Flavor is about the same, light sweet, medium bitter with a sharp bite. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad now, probably pretty good three months ago. Mea culpa

Tallahassee, Fl - Proof - Brewing Company - on tap - part of the Florida Tap Invitational . Medium amber colored pour, soft off-white head with plenty of lacing. Flavor has some fruity accents dominated by sweet cherry accents, some nutty accents, just a touch of grapefruit citrus bitterness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with an off white head. Malty aromas. Big bland hoppy notes with a bland malt backbone. Below average mouthfeel. Decent body.

On tap, Proof Brewing, downstairs. Clear, dark tea colored beer with a thin frogs’ eggs head. Tannic, west coast hop aroma. Mellow, woody, tangy, pretty good for a red. Acidic. Medium body. Long woody finish. Well done, although reds aren’t my style.

Tap, growler from Proof. Amber pour with a frothy off-white head and good retention. Aroma is citrus, caramel and pine. Tastes are same with eathy grassy vibe, little malt heavy. Leaves a long bitter aftertaste. nice creamy thin to medium palate. Nice enough.
