3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into pint glass. Hazy golden-amber color with white head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops, slight floral note too. Taste is more malty then aroma led on, notes of caramel, vanilla added to the hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, balanced sweet/dry with slight lingering bitterness. More malt heavy then expected but pretty tasty.

This is the best beer I've ever tasted that came out of GA. A nice clean ipa. Strong strong aroma and tasty floral hops, not overly piney and the alcohol is understated.

My local store finally started getting Sweetwater beers. This beer pours a light amber with average head and looks clear but upon closer inspection there is a lot of sediment floating around and some larger pieces have settled at the bottom of the glass. I am surprised this isn’t mentioned by others. The aroma is excellent with strong citrus notes and it seems there is a little pine mixed in as well. Taste is initially sweet and very similar to a red grapefruit with a nice bitterness. Overall it is very crisp, medium bodied, and refreshing. This would be awesome at the beach. This beer reminded me of another beer and at first I couldn’t remember what but then realized it was Double Duckpin. This is a watered down version but that is not meant to be a negative since I am comparing an IPA to an IIPA. People may disagree but that is what it seemed like to me. I will have to try the two side by side. Anyway, this beer is excellent and I will be buying more in the future.

A good, solid IPA. Pours an dark golden color with a tight white head. Aromas of citrus, pine and some toffee. Tastes more of the same with a good balance between the bitter hops and sweet malt. Clean and crisp finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Very nice grassy, floral, sappy, piney, resinous aroma with some tangerine too. Medium body, medium carbonation. Quite a bit of grapefruit juice, lemon, pine, light caramel, orange candy, light toast... Pretty crisp, dry and bitter - nice balance. Tasty.

Pours copper with white head. Citrus aroma with pineapple , floral hop and pine. Flavor is big citrus with pineapple, sweet malt with mineral notes in the middle and a big grapefruit and pine finish. Solid IPA. I’ve had Sweetwater multiple times when I was in Atlanta for business travel, it’s good to see it in Maryland now.
