On tap at the brewery. The pour was medium amber with an off-white head that was average in terms of retention and lacing. The aroma is excellent, with a well balanced mix of sweet malts, and fruity hops, as well as a clear toffee/caramel note. The flavor is nicely hoppy but without excessive bitterness. Highly drinkable, this one went down fast. Easy recommendation.

On-tap at Redlight Redlight in Orlando, FL.

A- Pours an Amber color with a nice off-white head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is sweet malt and a good dose of citrusy hops (most notably grapefruit).

T- The taste like the aroma is some sweet malt up front with a good amount of citrusy grapefruit bitterness in the finish.

M- The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

D- Overall, this is a solid pale ale. It's great seeing another great brewery open up in Florida. I look forward to trying more beers from Swamphead in the future.

A- Light brown/amber, very little white head

S- Citrusy (grapefruit?) and very bright for an APA

T- Citrus up front here too that turns to some bready malts and then the hop finish -- not too different from most APAs other than the nice twist of big citrus

M- Light/medium bodied, good carbonation

D- The citrus make it great to turn to when in the mood for an APA

amber and incredibly hazy and cloudy with tons of carbonation just ripping toward the surface. Immense white foam just leaps over the top of the glass, reaching a height of near three inches before finally settling down into a firm two fingers of head and rich lacing that lasted the entire session. Aroma is sharp citrus, lemon, orange, nice notes of grasses along with a great little hint of light bready malts providing some nice balance. Crisp, clean, near perfect flavor as the sharp and lightly tart notes of citrus work perfectly and are so well balanced I was amazed. Such a light, and easy drinking ale, I cannot believe how quickly this one snuck up on me. I could see myself drinking this for days all summer long, it was just that good.
