Picked up a six pack at PP Carlsbad, with 5 day old canning date. Honestly I felt the Pontos Session IPA (another PP 16oz tallboy offering) was better however Swamis is a great beer. If I lived here I would have this in regular rotation. Price point is very nice.

2 week old pint sized can to DFH IPA glass (9/5/14). Lots of fluffy white head and golden colored beer, tons of lacing as beer settled

Aroma is popping with citrus and a little bit of pine

Taste starts of with a good amount of sweetness. Mango pineapple grapefruit orange are noticeable Good amount of hop bitterness hits you on the finish for a good balance

Mouthfeel is perfect for a crushable IPA like this. Good amount of carbonation, medium body, goes down smooth and slight dry finish.

Overall a great example of a west coast IPA and at this price ($13 for 6 pack of 16 oz) I wish I lived in San Diego, this would no doubt be a mainstay in my fridge. Just got back from a vaca in San Diego and already want to go I back.

Heavy on the hop flavor with lots of tropical fruit and some citrus. Reasonable on the bitterness and mild on the malts. A fine west coast IPA.
