COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firsthand accounts describe an intense beast with a potent aroma and bite. Proof that the elusive monster exists? Or proof that brewing with five distinct varieties of hops creates an unbelievable, relentlessly hopped India Pale Ale? One taste and you’ll know, Swamp Ape is for real. Editor: if you have a black IPA in your hands, rate it under "Black Swamp Ape," not here...

kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a small tight bubbled white head. The nose is minimally hoppy with a bit of butter and caramel malt. Not the hop bomb that I was expecting. The flavor is fairly bitter, but sweeter than what I want from a double iPA. A fairly noticeable alcohol heat. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a fairly short finish. Not what I’m looking for in an DiPA, a little too sweet for my tastes. The alcohol is definitely in there though.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy gold/amber body with little head. Aroma intensely malty. Moderate to high hoppiness in the taste with plenty of bready malts. For a 10%er, it’s not that evident until you’re into your second one. Pretty good stuff.

12 oz bottle shared via BMMillsy who is my swamp god (Free Beer Week contest). Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have some booze, sticky citrus, pine resin, orange, pale malts, warming alcohol, a bit of off metallic character, it is 10% which gets a .1 bump, would like more bitterness and cohesiveness of flavors.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - MAR 15, 2015
Clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma slightly piney hops and a little musky. Flavor is citrus hops with a slightly resinous finish. A little confused by the mix of citrus and pine notes combined on my palate. Overall, not bad though. Wife: 3.4

But hazy orange with a thin off white head. Kind of orange aroma, dull. Full bodied dry stale hop flavor. But if a lemony finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks homer321. Color is amber orange solid head. Weird bacon hop aroma. Taste is infected bitter band aids. Drain meet ape.

3.7
Cybercat (6434) - Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours hazy honey golden with a nice buff head. Aroma is not strong, but promises some hops. Boldly hoppy flavor has woody, resiny and grapefruit components. Texture has average viscosity but fizz to spare. Swamp Ape beer is useful and good!

1/28/2015. From bottle. Hazy amber with a white head. Pine and citrus aromas. Bitter hops, alcohol, light caramel. Good but easy to forget.

Ambré/orangé. Gros sédiment solide. Fin collet blanc. Ronde. Sucré. Malté. Fruité. Bonne chaleur d’alcool. Fruit confit. Résineuse. Bien.
