3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, tasted during RBWG. Clear orange amber reddish color. Thin ring of off white head. Leaves good bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Toasty malt, some caramel malt. Some spicy citrusy grapefruity hop. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Pretty tasty, resiny hoppy stuff.

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 don’t generally like their beers.

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.
