I've tried a lot of IPAs in europe and USA and this one is definitely my favorite. It has the perfect balance of bitterness and fruity flavor.

Sweetwater IPA is actually really, really good! It's not a tongue bruiser like torpedo, and god forgive me honestly it tastes better crushing it from the can! It's subtle tropical notes enhance the smell & palate altogether. Did I mention every can is can-conditioned? This is perfect for the beach, grilling out, and overall a great intro to the IPA category.
