Poured from draft at restaurant into Pilsner glass. Thin mouth feel and thin in glass, with thin head. Slight floral nose, finished by fresh hops. Tingly mouth feel. Not too much going on, crisp finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
As I’m more partial to tropical hop flavors than piney/earthy hop flavors in IPAs, I didn’t enjoy this brew as much as Sweetwater’s standard IPA, which is one of my all time favorites. This was indeed a more conventional West coast style IPA, as advertised, very hoppy and bitter, I didn’t notice the malty balance as much. Maybe some fruity tropical accents, but mostly just bitter resin flavor. Aroma was strong, plain grassy and piney hoppiness, appearance was golden amber. Good but not distinctive.

I am fairly content with this IPA. Although it isn’t as strong of a hoppy flavor as other IPAs, I think this is a great smooth brew for a hot day.

Golden amber with a white head. Faint floral, pine aromas that are mild at best. Medium carbonation also makes it really easy to drink. Dry and abrupt finish. Nothing to get excited about, but cleanses the palette and is easy to put back.

It’s funny how the first few times I had this beer I wasn’t very impressed and I was reluctant to order it. Now, I get excited when I see this beer.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber/golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and lightly resinous hops, pale and caramel malts, and light dough. Flavors all sort of light. Average texture. A decent pale ale but not the best.

Bottle. Light, mild pale ale. Easy to drink, a balance hop & malt aroma, lighter body, carbonation is moderate. No problems, nothing extra either.

Paille sèche, poivrons bouillis, houblons terreux fantomes. Fortement générique et insipide.

Nothing at all to this beer. A bit of a malty front and then a lackluster finish.

Pale amber with a thin head. Grassy aromas predominantly with some graininess. Light body has a nice malt flavor with some underlying hop bitterness.
