4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Has always and will always be my go-to beer for the summer. This one has a much more citrus kick than any IPA I have had and almost has a rush of grapefruit on the initial sip until the hops come into play. I don't mind the stronger carbonation but I can see where this may be a turn off to some. The citrus notes really take the edge off the ABV so be careful (or not) lest you start feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. If you're anywhere in the southeast, look for the rainbow trout on the tap. You won't be disappointed.

Hazy amber pour with a nice white head. Great lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus, caramel, and grass. Taste is earthy, spicy hops, pine and light citrus. Bitterness is a little in the harsh side. Medium light body.

This bills itself as a "west coast IPA", but when you match it up against Green Flash West Coast IPA, it tastes like water. Thatís all. A big disappointment.

This is one of the palest, least flavorful ales Iíve ever had. Faint hop presence, no malts in sight, watery. Iím sure Sweetwater intends this as a gateway beer - or did - but today it just tastes dated.

Can 355 ml. Amber golden colour with medium head. Fruity hoppy and spicy taste with medium bitternes. Some dryness in the aftertaste. Not bad.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Caramel and a slightly nutty aroma come through with some grapefruit notes. The beer has a white soapy head that leaves a messy layer along with a medium thick ring above a mostly clear honey colored beer. The taste is a nice balance between medium bitter and sweet. The medium bodied beer has a light, fluffy carbonation, and a creamy texture. It finishes with a grassy and caramel flavor as well as some citrus. A clean, resin-esque quality makes up the aftertaste.

Notes of pine, citrus/grapefruit, somewhat bitter hops, and malty finish. Decent but not great.

Dull yellow-bronze color. Hazy. Pretty heavy on the malt. Centennial hops, light citrus, wheat, pine. Pretty light body. Bitter finish. Good carbonation. I dig the chewy texture to it. Itís actually a rather harsh beer. I couldnít drink too many of these.
