COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re celebrating 20 years of heady beers with this Imperial India Pale Ale. Always challenging our palates and our brewers’ talents, we added a massive dose of Hash for an aggressive hop punch, and followed with a secondary fermentation on Brettanomyces to bring some funk to that soul.

The hops deliver first with a residual sweetness of the Hash, followed by passionfruit, tangerine, and citrus aromas leading to the tartness on the finish. An extraordinary creating tapping many talents, built up into a beautifully hazy, weirdly wonderful brew.

20 down, plenty more to go.

Pours a heady cloudy Amber. Brett funk, dank hops and caramel. Pretty good.

Draft at Growler Spot in Macon. Orange gold with white head. Brett gives nuance to the citrus hops taste.

Draft at Cloverleaf. Hazy gold, off white head, light, spotty lacework. Funk and wood, dry hops. Resiny, grassy, a little alcohol. Flavor leans funky. Nice.

Nice anniversary beer, meshing hop and funk better than most brett IPAs. Citric hops, lemon and tangerine and pine, on top of a mild caramel maltiness and a horseblanket backbone with the slightest hint of sourness. Alcohol stays mostly hidden, and the finish is all funky IPA fun.

Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of horse blanket funk and big tropical fruit notes. Taste is even more of the fruit, nice hop noirs with a mild funk. Well done.

Draught at Casual Pint Lexington. Golden yellow in color. A really interesting mix of hop oil and brett. Works well.

Cybercat (5893) - Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2017
Pours clear amber with a thick and frothy, though not lasting, eggshell head. Aroma offers hoppy, tart fruit and funky notes. Flavor comes across as the offspring resulting from an IPA mating with a sour: hoppy, woody, bitter, tart, fruity, a little funky, definitely distinctive. Mouthfeel presents good body, fair fizz, and a sour woody finish. Happy 20th, Sweetwater, and may you celebrate many more!

Excellent anniversary beers....Georgia long time brewery. Good complex ipa. Lots of fruitiness, brett is all over it, manages to balance funky, sweet, fruity, and bitter. Not too mention a hit of booziness. Enjoyed it.

3/18/17. 750mL bottle from Habersham in Savannah. Orange pour with a nice creamy khaki head, awesome lacing. Nice aroma, Brett apparent, hop sweetness, tropical fruits, lots of citrus. Good flavor, not too bitter, funk from the Brett, mild tartness, tropical fruits. A lot going on. Pretty tasty.

Cloudy orange with a medium white head. Sweet Brett nose. Crisp tart bright green hop and a lot of fresh floral notes. Hints of lemon ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
