I had this beer on draft and compared it to Cigar City Jai Alain out of a can and liked the Swamp better. However, I prefer double IPAs.

God awful, tried it as an entrance to craft beer and almost turned me off completely. Now that I have tried other IPA's I know that it's just that this beer in particular is terrible and I shouldn't judge all IPA's off of it. Just a terrible beer, try for yourself if you wish but I would not recommend it.

Appearance: Clear light amber. Thin head.

Aroma: Big sugary sweet malt bill, medium intensity tropical fruit and pine hop character.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Some fruity hops and again a big caramelly malt bill. The smoked malt used really hits you in the finish. At first it adds a nice earthy quality and kind of rounds out the sweetness, but as it sits it get's this unbecoming band-aid quality and lingering cigarette-esque finish. Especially as it warms.

This beer is not borderline un-drinkable, it is un-drinkable. Hoppy-ness is lacking and the alcohol dominates. One of the few times I've actually poured a beer out.
