COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Personally this is my favorite beer to come out of Sweetwater. Not too spectacular at first glance but as soon as it touches your lips it may just become your favorite as well. I guess I’m just a sucker for IPA’s.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light malts, clean and sweetish. Good bright piney hop with light but fresh tasting orange and tangerine. Touches of pink grapefruit and mango. Light crisp finish. Bright and breezy, very easy drinking.

Pours medium with decent, lingering head. Nose is bright, citrus, honey. Taste is perfect, dense, carbonation, disappearing thickness, hops hops hops then nothing. Mouthfeel plays tricks, it’s syrupy for a second, then gone - making it easy to go back for an immediate second sip. Purists be damned, this IPA is great cold. I could drink this every day. I do drink this every day.

Hmmm... Kinda ordinary, certainly does not live up to the hype. Some hop flavor in there somewhere, drown out by malt. Much better beers out there. Disappointing.

jsmerig (1656) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2017
Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that shows great lacing. Taste is typical IPA. Grain and grassy notes dominate with a dry bitter bit not too bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is nice and citrusy. Taste is a lighter citrus taste with just enough bitterness. Overall very good.

Bottle. Poured a a hazy tannish orange color with a generous head. Some floral and citrus hop notes with some caramel malt background. Medium heavy bitterness. Medium body. This is a very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
