COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

On draft in Hilton Head SC. Pours a clear amber with a thick off white head. Hop aroma giving way to flavored of citrus and subtle pine notes. Mildly bitter finish.

I'm extremely biased to this beer. It is my go to beer. It tastes like heaven, if that was a real thing. I've had much better beers, but if you want an extremely accessible IPA in the south that is extremely good, you go with this beer. You will not be disappointed.

This is my go-to IPA. I really like everything about this one. If I'm at the store and can't decide I always go for sweetwater IPA, knowing I'll get a consistent, well balanced great tasting beer. Tastes best in swimming pool. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hfmejias (1026) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUL 17, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, amber with a nice foamy off white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, hoppy, some malts in there too. Taste is fruity, and a very well balanced combination of hops and malts. Very good beer, quite enjoyable, quite drinkable.

ccex (1074) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours a hazy dark orange color with fluffy, lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of mango, pine resin, and citrus hops. Taste is slightly bitter with noticeable malty sweetness in the middle, before a short dry finish. Body is medium without much carbonation. Has a slightly sticky mouthfeel, but enjoyable and easy to drink. This one exceeded my expectations as a clean, solid IPA which I’ll gladly try again.

Panzuriel (1427) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Medium golden hazy beer with a good head of white bubbles. Nose is good evergreen hops. Taste is crisp evergreen hops and just a smidge of medium malt. Lively body.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 12 oz bottle. Pours hazy, dark honey colored. Aroma of tangerine, mango, pine. Flavor of citrus, pineapple, spruce, grass. Has a sweet, tropical flavor up front, then a piney middle. Very nice.

Great hop aroma and taste. I'm a big IPA fan and this is one of my tops. If you can get it near you go for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Above average ipa. Doesn't quite have the hop punch that it advertises but smooth, easy drinking and pleasant overall. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
