Hard to believe this is 6.3% ABV. Extremely smooth, very drinkable. Unlike other IPA's that are similar ABV I don't feel the need for a glass of water after every glass of beer.

Had this in cans while on vaca in the smokey mountains...took a sixer with me fly fishing and this beer was such a treat to have, I felt guilty that I actually found a great beer while on vacation. Usually settling for some macro crap. Thanks for the great day guys. Word, Atlanta! whodathunk.

Pours an amber color. Pine and citrus smell. Smells great. Great taste that lines up well with the smell. Smooth and easy to throw back a few of these without thinking twice. One of the first IPAs I have ever had. I Love Sweetwater brews. An overlooked beer that I don't drink often enough.


Wife's Review: "It is one of the more drinkable IPAs. I could enjoy that if it was my third or fourth drink of the night."
