12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear dark gold with just a small fizzy head. Not really any head retention and just a few wisps of lacing on the sides of the glass. I'm a little disappointed with the appearance on this one.

The aroma more than makes up for what the appearance lacks. A huge hit of juicy, tropical fruit in the nose with some pleasant Belgian yeasty undertones. Not a ton of malt but this is really nice.

The flavor is just as great of the aroma. Lots of juicy fruit mixed with a bit of yeast spiciness. Grapefruit and orange dominate along with some orange peel and coriander. Bitterness is high and does well in balancing out the sweetness. Not much malt flavor but it isn't really missed.

Overall, I wish I would have tried this sooner. What an awesome IPA. Sweetwater never fails to disappoint with just about every beer they release.
