What a great session IPA. Swamp head did good on this one. Pretty standard session look, nice lacing on the glass. Lets see... somewhat tangy and hoppy in the nose, a little grassy as well. The taste is great, very fruity and not just citrus. It's got like mango and peach, but balanced well by the hops. I echo the previous review in that I can't believe it's 4.6%

This is a great, great session IPA.

(On the re-review, I brought this home in a growler, which allowed it to warm up a little as I got toward the bottom. This didn't change much except for some very nutty profiles which came out, somewhat like brazil nuts or macadamia nuts, very interesting. Still love this beer, wish they brewed it year round)

A pint from draft at the brewery today. Pours deep golden with some orange in there and a creamy half finger white head. Beautiful tropical fruit aroma with pineapple citrus going on beside some light pine and grass. Told this has Centennial, Simcoe, Mosaic, and Columbus in there and it is a nice blend of them. Flavor is a burst of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple, with plenty of mild bitterness and a crisp refreshing finish. Light bodied with high carbonation, but they don’t skimp on the flavor here. Can’t believe this was only 4.6%. One of the better session IPAs I have encountered.

On tap at World of Beer in Orlando. This beer smelled kind of hoppy but also skunky, made me take a step back mentally. The flavor was just bad. Not quite drain pour but it was funky. The only thing I could think of was "yep, tastes like it came from a swamp".
