This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2010 12 oz bottle-thanks go out to Belgianhomebrew for this one. pours an orange hue with lots of yeast floaties. very acidic hop aroma with tons of carbonation. Lots of hop bite on this one, but not much malt to speak of. pretty astringent and attempts to be stone ipa lite. This needs more malt to be a top ipa IMO. ReRate-Man, i had a religious experience with this beer while waiting for a flight in the Atlanta Airport. It was fantastic! deep orange huewith a sudsy soapy white head with awesome lacing-huge floral nose-pineapples, grapefruit, tropic and leafy (almost cannibus ish) flavors exhibit the citrus here with a good late bitterness to dry things out. This is a world-class IPA that everybody needs to try fresh. bottles dont do this thing justice!

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Excellent IPA. Pours an orangey-amber with an off-white head. Has lots of suspended particles. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is very hoppy/floral with pine, grapefruit/citrus. Sweet and spicy. Good malt backing. Mouthfeel is very full and round. Highly recommended brew. Thanks Goldtwins!

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2004 Bright gold color. Doesn’t have the big floral hop bite that I like in an IPA, but clean and crisp anyway. Nicely balance floral, citrus, malty and hoppy. Does it have lemon juice in it? Every bottle I’ve had tastes different.

Thanks to my pal SpringsLicker for sending the assortment of Atlanta Brews!
Pours a cloudy orange body and a nice off white head… tons of lacing spackled to the side of the glass! Geez!! I wasn’t expecting such a wonderful aroma! A full onslaught of citrus! Grapefruit and orange… notes of pinesap and caramelized sugars… Very Nice! The flavor is not nearly as pure in grapefruit as the aroma suggests. The flavor brings loads of caramel malts… citrus is still present and in effect, but the malt balances it all out. Rather woody, mostly Pine and Spruce.. rather toasty, with submissions of peach, apple, and plums. The palate is medium body, oily, and the finish is snappish and DRY!!!
The best offering I’ve yet to encounter from Sweet Water, and it’s done in relatively a West Coast style… NICE!!

Cloudy orange with a thin head and small floaties swirling about. Yeasty nose. Sharpish mouthfeel up front, but became watery at times toward the finish. Light and sweet malt flavors (cookie dough) meddled nicely with a yeasty earthiness. Flowery, herbal hops contributed a decent bitterness. Thus, adequate balance. Some cobwebs in the back of the throat, but nothing bothersome. Somewhat oily and resinous in the aftertaste. Overall, not too bad at all.

Aroma is a very strong mix of cinnamon and ginger with lots of hops. Pours a semi opaque orange with a good amount of head. Goes down very smoothly with a bit of warmth to it at the end. Has a mix of cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg in the taste.

Golden-orange in colour. Aroma of citrus(oranges, grapefruit), hops and some pine. Flavour of grass, hops, some malt, earth, citrus and some spices. Medium body. Finishes with a medium bitterness. Thanks for the bottle mr_kimchee.

Pleasant enough citrus-orange/pale golden beer releasing a hoppy fruity forest aroma. Kinda creamy mouthfeel with nice lingering finish that feels somewhat refreshing and slightly bitter.
