12 oz bottle from FL into a pint glass.
Sweet and only lightly hoppy aroma from the amber body.
The flavor carries a substantial hint of honey despite being far more bitter than sweet. The high ABV is poorly hidden.
Overall: distinct and interesting if ultimately rather mediocre DIPA.

Seems like people are rating this IPA who don’t know what to expect from IPA’s. I used to not like ‘em either till I Googled it and found out they’re supposed to taste like that. Now I’m a connoisseur. Believe me folks. This is a VERY good IPA! A new favorite for me! Swamp Ape, Please don’t change a thing! I love this beer!

I was really surprised to see such a low rating. This beer is quite malty, not quite balanced by the hops. Instead of a hoppy character it is a little sour, which is not necessarily bad, just unexpected. Overall I like it.

This pours a clear orange amber with modest foam in the big wine glass. Aroma of snubbed-out incense. Tastes of bubble gum, eucalyptus soap, old peaches, last night's barbecue. It's quite spritzy and crisp, but the flavors are so peculiar and unpleasant, who cares.

This may be the worst DIPA in my experience. The first bottle I had two sips, grimaced, and in the morning poured it out. The second try I was more prepared but the woody, soy sauce flavor along with the burnt fruit cocktail taste is too much for me. From the Mendez Mobil in Coral Gables. From the refrigerator, even.
