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!

Last offering from the tacklebox. One helluva pop from this bottle [A] Great aroma. Kind of skunky. Not in a stale way. Dank. Floral and citrus aromas. Caramel & Euro malts present. Almost lends a nutty/chocolate note. Hop oil. Simply put, but pretty quaffable. [A] Orange amber. [F] Body is nice. Good balance. That skunky hop comes through, with orangey citrus. But otherwise, the malt levels things out. Biscuity pale flavors under upfront caramel and crystal. [P] A medium-light feel. Justly carbonated. Hop bite about right for an IPA. Enjoyable, without becoming too bitter. [O] Wow. It is odd of me to say, I STILL think the Blue was the most enjoyable brew in the mixed 12-er. IPAs are one of my favorite styles. But become boring at times. This was deemed satisfying enough to repeat, if Sweetwater ever comes to IL. Tie for 1st place out of the 4. Good.

12oz bottle in Seattle, picked up by my brother in ATL. Bright, right brown-tinted gold, very full creamy head. Tart malty aroma, good bright hop and sharp. Only disappointment is the feel of the body, a bit light and cardboard-carbonated. Super clean, very tasty, very bright. I quite like it.

A somewhat cloudy dark copper color. A little bitter with predominately floral hop flavors. A little lemon. Pretty smooth texture. Some toffee, malt flavors to balance.

Can - pours a hazy darker gold/ light amber with a big whitish/yellowish head a laces pretty well. Fruity and floral aroma- apricot, honeydew melon, chamomile and citrus peel. Slightly maltier than anticipated. Good flavors of peach, breadfruit, grapefruit, cereal and citrus. Well made and unique

Clear orangeish amber with very generous head. Very fruity aroma with citrus, fruit salad, pineapple, clementine. Medium mouthfeel and not too dry. Biscuity malts more present in taste than aroma. Hops more subtle with mild bittering on finish.

scarletfire65 (1242) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle at home. Leafy hop and citrus aroma. The malt is a bit biscuity and toasty. Subtlely hopped. More of an APA, but pretty nice.

Bottle. Orange blossom and pineapple, leafy hops, some light sweetness, a hint of biscuity malts and dryish finish. An enjoyable IPA.
