Thanks to my cousin Sonny down in FL for sending this one up to me. This will be my first Swamp Head experience and following that will be the 10-10-10 Pappy and Resentment.

A- Poured to a deep tulip and a pint glass with both receiving a fairly hazy, orange-amber brew. A thick, creamy white cap builds up to two fingers with great retention. Thick, frothy ring leaves huge lace pillows at the top with webs behind that.

S- Big aroma jumps out of that glass that has substantial hop and malt character. Hops pack a citrus zest, pine and resinous punch. Base of caramelized, toasty malts and some yeast fruit hints.

T- The first few sips bring a beer that is divided right down the middle between hops and malts. After some time the hops gain some strength on the grains with grapefruit, orange peel, pine resin and stone fruit notes. Fresh cracked grains, toast, biscuit, cereal and crystal malts provide a balance. Some mango hints on the back end.

MF- Thick bodied with a creamy, somewhat chewy texture. Carbonation at a high level which caters to the copious hops and the heavy bitterness that seems to linger forever.

This beer drinks big time but strikes a hard-to-find balance between big malts and big hops. Both aspects of the flavor are intriguing and work well off of each other. I find that many DIPAs have the malts in there as a result only of the high ABV, here it feels like the brewer's vision.

750 ml grabbed from the brewery just this week. Poured fresh. A beautiful dark orange pour, a little hazy, with a two finger off white head that is looking super creamy. Floral aroma, grapefruit, orange rinds, som big toffee malt sweetness. Flavor is very malt forward with lots of sweet caramel, then a good but of grapefruit and orange rind follow and linger. The mouthfeel is slick, low carbonation for the style, with a bright fruity character that leaves this lighter than it should be on the palate. Overall this was more malt forward than I had hoped--bordering on a fresh American Barleywine--but a nice beer nonetheless. Don't expect a big citrus west coast IPA when going into this and it is enjoyable.
