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!

Malt: 2 Row, Pale Malt, Munich, 70-80 Crystal, Wheat

12 oz bottle. Pours with a thin white head. Lots of dank floral aromas. Piney and floral hop tastes. Good malt presence. Finishes well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BigBeer45 (1335) - Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Sampled from a bottle, this ale had a clear burnt orange pour with a touch of red and presented a one to two finger faint off-white lasting head that receded to film and sticky ring, it left partial rings and spots of lacing on the glass, the nose had aromas of grapefruit and guava fruit citrus hops with a little grass and toasted malt, a little bread, and some malt and bread sweetness, the flavors were lemon and grapefruit citrus hops with a touch of grass and toasted malt, and a little malt sweetness, the finish had a good citrus hop bitterness that lingered on the mouth with some malt trailing, the mouth feel was light, it was creamy and had average carbonation, a light IPA that was easy to drink and had lots of citrus and light fruit hops with a nice toasted malt flavor.

Thanks to iNBe. Pretty good stuff. Flavorful but easy to drink and the hops don’t overwhelm. Citrus and pine. Serving: bottle

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 (1059) - 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 (1080) - 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.

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.
