Pours orange with a sticky white foamy head.

Herbal, almost smoky, hop aroma.

The taste is sweet, with big alcohol and hop flavors that remind me of herbs.

Slick body, thanks to the alcohol, I'm sure.

Overall a nice treat for hop lovers.

This ipa has a pleasant grain flavor to it, which leads me to believe that marriage otter was the base malt. Most of the hop flavor you get is in the form of big dank hops. However, it was much sweeter than I like my dipas to be.

Thanks to my cousin Sonny down in FL for sending this one up to me. This will be my first Swamp Head experience and following that will be the 10-10-10 Pappy and Resentment.

A- Poured to a deep tulip and a pint glass with both receiving a fairly hazy, orange-amber brew. A thick, creamy white cap builds up to two fingers with great retention. Thick, frothy ring leaves huge lace pillows at the top with webs behind that.

S- Big aroma jumps out of that glass that has substantial hop and malt character. Hops pack a citrus zest, pine and resinous punch. Base of caramelized, toasty malts and some yeast fruit hints.

T- The first few sips bring a beer that is divided right down the middle between hops and malts. After some time the hops gain some strength on the grains with grapefruit, orange peel, pine resin and stone fruit notes. Fresh cracked grains, toast, biscuit, cereal and crystal malts provide a balance. Some mango hints on the back end.

MF- Thick bodied with a creamy, somewhat chewy texture. Carbonation at a high level which caters to the copious hops and the heavy bitterness that seems to linger forever.

This beer drinks big time but strikes a hard-to-find balance between big malts and big hops. Both aspects of the flavor are intriguing and work well off of each other. I find that many DIPAs have the malts in there as a result only of the high ABV, here it feels like the brewer's vision.
