3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange with a sudsy white head. Aromas of grassy hops and some yeast. Taste is a tad hoppy but the caramel malts are also there balancing it out. Seems the hops left on the tongue are more predominant in the aftertaste than in the initial sip. Not an outstanding representation of the style but a rather drinkable one that is widely available everywhere in my region.

Well, doesn't smell like 420, but delish ;). Good forward hoppiness. Some bitterness, but overall solid beer.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Pours golden with lots of sediment. Aroma of yeasts bready malts and hops. Tastes of cool malts and then spicy citrusy floral hops. Palate smooth mouthfeel and lasting finish. Not a fan favorite for me.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite crisp on the uptake, initially. Has a rather medium to sharp hop bite. Looks decent in the glass. Good co2 fer sure, makes it refreshing, to an extent. Somewhat metallic aroma. Yes, don’t care for hopped beers, but this one comes across fresh, with every swig. Good and bubbly. Better than expected. Only IPA drawback is that it has a rather sharp ale finish.

Pours a light copper color, frothy creamy 1 finger head. Aroma - hops (mostly resin) with a malt background. Taste is malt with balancing hop bitterness, goes down crisp and clean with a short to medium finish.

22 oz. from the tap at Skull Creek Boathouse on Hilton Head Island. Do the Sunday brunch. Very nice hop content. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Bottle conditioning shows up nicely but otherwise clear and light amber in color. A little skunked but in somewhat of a good way like a bitter hop aroma. Flavor is strong for an extra pale ale. Finish is smooth. A staple beer for sure.

Nice citrus hop aroma. Nice sweet malt up front. Bitterness comes in nicely. Balanced. Finish has some bitterness but pretty tame. Nice session beer.... Fresh and high quality.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 9/5/11 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods. Pours hazy golden orange with an average white head that recedes to a thin layer of lace. The nose is pale cereal and hay malt with orange peel and lightly herbal bitter hops. The flavor is exactly the same with the cereal and hay malt leading in to the lightly bitter orange peel and herbal hops. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium citrus hops finish.

Decent Ipa offering from Sweetwater but not as good as the Sweetwater IPA. The color is closer to golden than amber like typical IPAs. Very bitter aftertaste due to the high hop content!
