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.

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.

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.

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.
