750ml bottle in a teku. Pours deep brown/ruby with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of floral and piney hops, some toffee and caramel malts, light alcohol notes, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Interesting, but not the best beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear, deep, dark, Longhorn-orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is all about the hops - peppery, spicy, dank and musky. Full-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. Bitter citrus rindy and tannic hops dominate the flavor. Lengthy, lingering, bitter finish. I typically hate imperial red ales, but this is tolerable for me. Surprising, coming from Swamp Head. I donít generally like their beers.

Swamp Head Sciaenhops is an IPA wannabe that isnít. 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.
