Tap at proof. Clear orange with white head. Rye earthy spiceyness. Ginger? Lots of herbal earthy hop character and rye. Light body drinkable. Good for at hot day but not blown away.

Murky orange-brown beer with a creamy head. Hoppy scent with hints of pine. Initial flavor is bitter without being overly so, which then develops with a pleasant sour complement, and finishes with slight citrus. A good IPA that does not overwhelm with hops.

Pours hazy, orange-yellow with a thick, off-white head. Aroma is orange malt, rye. Taste is citrus and a substantial rye. Earthy/herbal hop bittering. Very nice.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Beer of the month club bottle. Pours cloudy light orange with a tiny white head. Aroma of orange peel, honey, pine, and a hint of spice. Flavor is strong orange zest with a spicy rye tone. Some nice bitter bite, and dry rye finish. Light mouthfeel and pretty drinkable as I have found with other Sweetwater pales. Good beer.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 This is an OK ipa but is easily drinkable. Did not think it had enough body and there was a serious lack of hop bitterness and aroma. Overall a good beer but easily forgettable.

From a 12 oz bottle in Hilton Head SC. Pours a clear light amber with a thick frothy white head. Grassy hop aroma. Pretty muted flavors, dominated by hop bitterness.

What a nice surprise here. Pours orange-amber into the glass, with an eggshell head that reduces to a thin cap, leaving chunky lace. The nose is floral and woody, with rye accents. Flavors are extremely well-balanced, a nice dollop of rye, pale malts, nice orange citrus, some rind/peel notes, and finishing with the peppering rye and floral bitters. Again, the balance is very well done, with a smooth and active mouthfeel, providing an extremely easy quaff. Good stuff here, and Im very glad to have picked it in my mix-n-match. Will definitely have again.
