3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in the Atlanta airport. Poured a medium gold, clear, decent head. Aroma was pale malts and some spicy/floral/faintly citric hops. Flavor a match. Dry on the finish, fairly bitter but not over the top. Hops more subdued on the palate than expected, but pleasant. Very, very faint hint of a rubbery note - now that I see the description of lager yeast at ale temps, that makes more sense. Not bad. Not remotely a California Common by any stretch.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (BB July 14, 2015). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
The nose is a bit mild and quite simple, a straightforward grapefruity hop affair. Quite bitter in the finish, rather citric as well. A "steam" beer by process, apparently.

12oz bottle. Clear yellow color with one finger white head. lemon and grass aroma. Grass, some spices, and lemon on the taste. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light lager aroma with some earthy hops. Pours a slightly hazy light straw with a thin white head. Earthy and spicy hop notes are the predominant flavor, with a touch of sweetness and a lingering bitter finish. Very light bodied and easy drinking. A very nice, light drinking spring beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweetwater Road Trip has a thick, frothy, white head, a semi-hazy, yellow-gold appearance, powdery sediment, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sharp, sweet, white bread, some lemon, and pungent yeast. Taste is of sweet, bitter, lemony, sourdough bread. The bitterness, in fact, is quite pronounced. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Sweetwater Road Trip finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

I dig. I haven't had many ipps so I'm not sure how to rate. Drink by yourself across the street from people you know.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a really nice blond ale, might even be willing to call it a koelsch or something but probably too hoppy for that. Itís cloudy orange yellow w/ a fine-bubbled white head and all kinds of lacing. This stuff has some bready malt character but it is all about the floral (noble?) hops. The nose is somewhat mild but when you taste it, it is simply bursting w/ mellow hop flavor. Itís medium to full bodied and just a touch sweet, which helps those hops to pop. It finishes w/ a firm, floral bitterness in the finish. This is a really good beer and Iím happy to have it in my area now.

Appearance: pours with a small white head that fades quickly, the beer is a hazy yellow color Aroma: very lightly toasted grain, corn, faint Taste: corn syrup, faint hops in there, lemon Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, corn and hop aftertaste Overall: this just reminds me of industrial lager too much, not my choice but still better than a real industrial lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
