3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium hazy amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that had awesome longevity, lasting throughout thus producing some really excellent sticky sheets of lace.
The aroma was a little mild with a citrus hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with light notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was not as strong as I expected it to be, but had a mild maltiness and a hint of caramel early on and then became slightly bitter with a mild citrus note at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with the taste of hops growing slightly as time went on.
Mouthfeel was light in body and had a dry texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a very light hopped IPA with the complexity kept to a minimum. That being said it was nice and refreshing and had a great drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can to snifter. Pour is lightly hazy, orange to copper in color with a small white head. Aroma is strong citrus rinds with a pine of pine. Taste is strong citrus and pithy bitterness initially with a bit of floral hop character coming through in the finish. Not much malt here to speak of; definitely hop focused and heavily on the bitterness. Overall, drinkable, but I would prefer to see a little more hop complexity and variety.

Very good IPA offering by Sweetwater. Typical auburn color with a smooth hop based focused after taste! As a fan of this type of beer I really like how smooth it is!

Typical ipa nose and color. Citrus tastes with a nice hop bite. Small malt backbone. Not great but horrible by any stretch.
