Hazy orange with small head that dissipates rather quickly, decent lacing. Smells strongly of fruity hops. Taste is balanced malt and hops, very pleasant and refreshing. Nice feel in mouth with long and tasty finish. Want to drink again.

The beer is hazy and an orange hue. The head is rather short. The smell is very good. The malt has a cracker characteristic to it and the hops really pop out with tropical and grassy notes. The taste is more malt forward with the tropical hop notes downplayed even further but still present. The feel is quite thick and satisfying. However, it does lack a good level of carbonation. Overall, a very satisfying beer with strong and enjoyable flavor.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of pine and roasted malt. Very roasty and malty with a piney bitterness.

Poured a golden body with decent head and constant carbonation for some reason. Light, dirty, citric aroma with hints of earthiness. Smooth, dry, dirty, some minimal grapefruit and malt sweetness help provide balance and give a crisp, easy finish.

Clear amber, white foamy head, not persistent, somewhat lacy; Hops apparent in the aroma; Hops also apparent in the flavor; Mouthfeel is smooth with medium carbonation. Not bad but not great, a little on the bitter side., hoppy aftertaste.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy orange yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has both malt and hops. The taste is mild, to include the aftertaste.

a very good pale ale right here, with a somewhat similar hop profile to their big nose ipa, but with the crystal type malt all dropped out, light and dry and clean and full of flavor and character, fresh as can be from the can, and just exactly the type of pale ale i want to drink in hot florida weather, post golf and such. radiant golden in the glass, settling white head on top and lots of spriting carbonation. slight pine and grapefruit to the hops, white strawberry and mandarin orange if i reach, but its clean and flavorful and good. simple pale malt grain base but a little bit of body with it too, great balance and even some bitterness to help it wash down and stay crisp. you never hear anything about these guys anywhere, but i have liked all of the swamp head beers i have had, and as the hoppy pale types go, this ranks among the best we had on our trip to florida last week. this is a primo session beer, drinkable without limit when its cold and fresh like this. very well done american pale here!
