I extremely enjoyed touring the Sweetwater Brewery in ATL. I thought this beer tasted really well. I give it my stamp of approval.

Can. Starts out with soap and foam. Develops into a standard IPA not much distinguished from other IPAs.

joejames (472) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2016
On draft at Crazy Tomato, Lancaster, served in a shaker glass, pours hazy orange/gold. One inch off white head with some lacing and moderate retention. Aroma of light pine and caramel. Taste is slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Medium body, moderate carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of caramel, light spruce, grapefruit and orange. It’s not bad.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 1, 2016
The bottle came to me at the esbls get together and I have no idea who to thank. Pours lorange with a white head. Nose of pine, citrus, and grass hops. Medium body. Flavor is hoppy with citrus passing up the prime, and the finish is bitter. and somewhat early and dam. Pretty darn good even though by the time it got to me it had warmed to about 65 degrees which may have been about right.

PanMarek (221) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Malty nose with some caramel notes, the hops are piney and some citrus at the end. Pours dark golden with persistent white foam. On the light side with a watery / oily body and light fizz. The taste is a good malt / hop balance, with the hops overall.]

CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Aroma very muted. Taste is hops-forward with citrus and grapefruit notes. Pretty decent hops-forward pale ale. Rating is coming out to an even average 3 because of how much they are counting aroma, which just almost isn’t there in this beer. Taste wise, though, this is more of a 3.2 than a 3.0. :)

CraftBeerNick (1880) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle at Gaylord, Nashville, 10th July 16. Pours clear. Aroma is limited, slight citrus maybe. Flavour is non offensive, slightly lacking. It’s OK, but dull.

Hazy orange yellow pour with aroma of citrus, pine, and bread. Citrus flavor with some grapefruit, bread, and hint of pine. Nice beer.

Had this on tap at glory days grill in Tampa Florida. Good grapefruit notes. Not a lot of malt flavor, but still a good apa.
