In a trip back to our temporary home of Atlanta... i was excited to try some of the staples I used to enjoy.... Sweetwater Brewing company is that staple. At our old Whole Foods I bough a six pack of the IPA... wifey got a Blue Moon six pack... (i know, I'm wincing too)....
The day was long... 3:30 wake-up to catch an early morning flight... my 8month old son slept on me the entire way... we (my son and I) strolled around the Emory campus while wifey fulfilled her obligation of speaking on a panel. We found a baseball game, and watched Emory score a few runs... then finally went back to the hotel to enjoy the sweet water....
From the brown bottle directly to the hotel bathroom glass/tumbler... the color was not that impressive... it was a dark amber, with a thick white head...
a grapefruit aroma... gave way to a good taste... a strong start, with a sweet finish... the drinkability would be a 6 if I could rate it that high.
can't wait to go back to ATL and get me some more sweetwater.

An old favorite from the ATL...
A. Copper gold, one finger of off-white head with good retention and lacing.
S. Pine, grapefruit, tangerine zest, traces of pineapple, rose petals.
T. Follows the nose with pine needles, grass, pineapple, some biscuit malt, and a slight sweet kick.
M. Packs a nice bitter punch but doesn't overstay it's welcome. A clean, balanced, and crisp AIPA.
O. An excellent American IPA that drinks like an excellent blend of both East and West coast versions. Certainly a dank, hoppy treat but balanced with sweet, grainy malt bill. Very enjoyable.
