I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this beer. Made in Gainesville, I had never heard of the brewery while down in Orlando. Picked up a six pack to try something local not expecting much but its excellent. I would love to try it out the keg, as I prefer this type of beer draught.

Look- Golden with a small light head
Nose- Citrus and hops
Taste- more of the same. Stronger hops then the nose with a sweet citrus finish. Well balanced but hops a little strong at first
Feel- Medium bodied
Overall- very good. Probably one of the best beers swamphead makes. Definitely their most popular. Worth a shot if you are hitting the brewery or a local restaurant

Pours a chill hazed gold with a noticeable amber hue and a half finger of off-white foam.

Piney, earthy, and semi-citrusy hop character comes through, but the noticeable caramel malt backbone shows its strength.

Fortunately, the sturdy caramel malt backbone gives enough support, but doesn't overpower the pine and citrus hop resins.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, nice balance.

Overall, this is a very solid APA. Being from Chicago, I can safely say this beer would be a staple in my fridge if I lived in Gainesville.
