From notes at the brewery: Aroma: Fruity hops (citrus, pineapple) but aroma is weak. Appearance: Dark golden with a nice small but dense head that leaves good lacing. Flavor: It's got that floral hops that is a signature of sweetwater beers. Other flavors are grapefruit, touch of pine and caramel sweetness. Palate: medium body, lively, bitter with medium finish. Overall: This is a good & very drinkable beer. It would appeal to the first time IPA drinker b/c it is lighter than many others. It's good and could be a session beer. Enjoyed their cheeseburger here.

Got this one from the Centerville location. On tap with a pint.

Dark golden color. Large frothy head the never dissappears.

Aroma is hoppy with a hint of citrus. Very nice to the nose.

Malty and hops are very present. Spicy flavors. Nicely done.

Loved every minute of this one.

Medium gold color. Large head. Aroma is floral hops and piney. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are sweet and fruity. Hops are grapefruity, spicy and piney. Very nicely balanced. A tasty and bright IPA. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

I originally sampled this on 5 November 2002. I am writing this review from my notes.
Appearance: Cloudy orange color w/ a foamy white head takes over your glass.
Aroma: A nice citrus/hoppy nose fills your nostrils.
Flavor: This brew has a nice hoppy bite. In my opinion, this is definitely a must-try for the IPA afficionado

Sweetwater has a boatload of different brews and as expected they have an IPA that - are you sitting down for this? - is hoppy. As the brewer says "defined by generous quantities of premium hops". Good floral nose, starts hoppy, finishes hoppy. The ABV is not to be found. Hazy, orange-copper color, good head but doesn't much lace.
