A pretty good Indian Pale Ale. A pale hazy yellow colour and a white head. A good taste with a lot of hop flavor. I did like the Dogfish head 60min IPA better though. I drank this out of a shaker.

This a great beer. The aroma is sweet with hops and it has a great cream head. The taste has a great bitter sweet mix.

12-oz. Thanks, Franksnbeans! Pours dark copper with a thick, sudsy off-white head. Big grapefruit and mango nose. Medium body, refreshing carb, forward flavors. Luscious candied fruit: mango, apricot, grapefruit. Even a bit of pine. Clean fruit candy finish. Amazing, really, that they got so many different hop notes out of two plants.

A good twist on this southern micro-brew. It has an "English Bitter" taste to it. But as in all sweetwater a hit of fruit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of pineapple and hops. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Good flavor of fruity hops with a decent malt backbone and a bitter finish. The body is light and the carbonation is moderate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, unfiltered, glowing orange-amber body. Small off-white head settles quickly to a patchy, thin film with a prominent edge. Scattered, thin, snake-like lacing sticks to the glass in seemingly random places. The aroma shows sharp grapefruit hops, orange curacao, and buttery toffee malts. The flavor starts out quite malty, with caramel and toffee being the primary components. Grapefruit hops quickly rush in to take center stage, followed by sharp grassy notes, and finishing with hints of cream. Medium body that is smooth, but slightly sticky. Nice IPA, but not out of this world.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2008 Great session beer! Clear amber with fluffy white head and nice spotty lacing. Very lively light head and spotty lacing. Wonderful citrus aroma and flavor profile sweet up front and a slightly bitter/malty finish. It it were availble in central NC it would surely be my goto beer.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2009 This one pours a deep, hazy, almost opaque coppery amber with a thick, orangy-tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma is strong and very evergreenish. Flavor is seriously hoppy, like drinking a pine tree, with just a whisper of sweetness, and mildly bitter. Texture is smooth and jazzy, very pleasing, leaving an evergreen aftertaste. I have had this in a bottle, and it is better on-tap! Strongly recommended to all hops fans.
