Long time coming but worth the wait. We got the first beer from the first keg at World of Beer in Viera, Fl.

Delightful citrusy hop aroma. Nicely balanced fresh hops with enough malt. Slightly astringent. Poor head retention - no lace. (new keg?)

Second one is even better - nice head and some lace. Very drinkable beer. Glad to see Swamphead get it's distribution going. New fav.

Serving type: on-tap

This is a really nice beer. It's not too florally hoppy and not to heavy. This is the kind of IPA you can have many of and not feel too full. I just had it in a twelve beer sampler at Engine 15 in Jacksonville Beach and I think it came in second only to a giant of IPAs from Green Flash. BTdubs - the other Swamphead beers were also good representations of their type and quite tasty. I'll be taking a trip to Gainesville at some point...
