On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Large off-white head, high retention. Soapy lacing, then some clear, oily, slick lacing. Aroma includes lemon, grapefruit and some fresh mowed grass. Taste has a nice malt sweetness in the background but mainly includes citrusy lemon, lemon peel, pine and slight alcohol. Mouthfeel actually is thicker than expected and that I remember in the past, really lingering on and tingling the tongue for a hot minute. Unique and delicious.

Had this homecoming weekend in Gainesville @ Stubbie's. Beautiful deep golden, hazy, nice foamy white head. Big floral notes with some grassy, earthy tones. The flavor it bitter throughout. Nice sweet malts hidden in there, probably some Maris Otter pale malt used from what it tastes like. There is a bit of astringency from all the hops used. The alcohol warms you quickly so it probably is not one you want to sit and drink all night. Body is filling and carbonation is mild.

On tap at Stubbies, beer is orange and hazy with a thin white head of small bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. Served a little too cold perhaps but so far so good.

The aroma has a nice hop chewiness with great aromatic pininess with some fruit / citrus (amarillo aroma) and lots of it, there is some malt that sneaks through but appropriate amounts, smells good.

I think they really nailed the bitterness of this beer well. It has this nice chewiness to the whole thing. Great body, mildly sweet, very bitter, the hops are the star here. It reminds me mildly of Pliny (somewhat). Not quite as good in my opinion but it is a stellar IPA all around. I'd have it again for sure.

Poured on tap in a DFH snifter. Of course we got this at the House of beer in Orlando. Nice bright but darker orange color (when I say bright i mean not cloudy) I dug my nose into this guy with full anticepation of greatness. I was right. It was a man aroma therapy. Hops all over the place with some banging citrus only found in Florida beer. The taste hit you like a hopslam, but with a FLorida twist.I quickly dove back in for another sip. 10% will knock you on your "you know what" so having a line of them is not the best idea, but the drinkability is superb, Thumbs up Gville.

Pours a cloudy orange with an off white head. The head falls to a very minimal one or almost none. Thinnest of lace.

Floral hop nose with slight malt.

Nice bold hop taste with decent malt background. Mild sweetness with pleasant hop bitterness in the finish.

Medium bodied in the mouth. Slick and a bit chewy, nice.

Really like this. Well done Gainesville.

A - A hazy, golden-orange body, topped with a small head of off-white foam. Good retention and nice, thick lace.

S - An aroma of sweet, fruity hops with lots of pineapple and grapefruit. A light tobacco note with some toasted malt and a hint of caramel.

T - Sweet, bready malt up front with some toast and toffee notes. Strong hops appear in the middle with notes of pungent pine, mango, and grapefruit. Finishes with lots of bready malt and light toffee as well as strong bitterness. Lingering toasty malt and hop bitterness that leaves a tobacco like impression on the palate.

M - Medium-thick body, moderately low carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - This is a very nice DIPA. The hop character is pungent with hefty bitterness, but there is more than enough malt to balance it out. This combination of rich malt and hop character creates a nice level of complexity that lingers and evolves through the finish. This reminds me in many ways of Dogfish Head 90 min IPA. Definitely worth trying; after this beer I am looking forward to seeing what SwampHead can do in the future.
