Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned Oct 7th. 2014.

Extremely pale amber, nearly lemon, with some faint bronze orange highlights in the body color with great clarity. Lost of plentiful and nice looking carbonation, reaching to a big creamy thick filled off white four finger head. Thick creamy retention with angel food cake like creamy top. Thick bubbled but slowly settles and doesn't break into chunks. Real nice.

Very nice hop juiced fruit tropical aroma. Some nice grass and fresh mellow cut senses going on with a hint of herbality too. Slightly spicy, and has a bit of mango character it seems. Subtle and subdued sweetness also.

Palate comes with a bit more crisp character. Steely fruit and washing tropical flavors. Hints of melon and mango like flavors with a clean and very crisp almost Kolsch like body. A mild sense of ripping grain on this, nearly husky but with lots of dryness. Some intersting sugar spices kick in as well

Pretty nice, but quite light bodied, and not so big on the fruit angle. Definitely a good IPA and some of its mellow character makes it a bit appealing too.

Everything a single IPA should be. Great hop flavor and aroma. If you can get your hands on one you will not be disappointed. If you visit San Diego, you must have Swami's.
