3.94/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz can with a best by date of 9/23/18; into a pint glass.
Appearance- cloudy gold with some bubble streams supporting a medium thick, soapy white head; lacing is minimal.
Smell - a blend of citrus, tropical, pine and cracker malt.
Taste - flavor profile mimics the nose, but is far more appealing!
Feel - light, super easy drinking, mildly bitter, but all IPA!
Overall- quite possibly the best session IPA I’ve had, as it checks the taste box and given it’s a mere 4.2%, this is an absolute beach crusher!

Golden to slight orange in color with a good sized head and some lacing. Smells of pine, grass and citrus. Taste follows the smell with a balanced beer that has a full bodied feel for a session ipa.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a glass from a 12oz bottle.

A - Pours a hazy straw, forming a rocky one inch white head, and forming medium lace on the glass. Steady stream of tiny carbonation.

S - Strong aroma of fresh squeezed lemonade.

T - Slightly fruity hop flavor up front with a mild malt backbone in the finish. Not nearly as robust as the aroma would lead.

F - Medium bodied, good carbonation, and clean.

O - Very simple session IPA with not a lot going on. Not bad, but not memorable.

I have not drank Sweetwater regularly since I lived in Carolina a while back but saw a fifteen pack of this in Brunswick today and felt nostalgia. This starts impressive with a beautiful head and cloudy golden color. The nose is citrus and caramel malt.

This is balanced and smooth in texture. I like the late hop laden finish. Definitely easy to drink, this is obviously a little thin and lacking a full, robust IPA flavor. Still, I am impressed and would definitely pick this up again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is straw gold, head is off white presenting 2+ inches thick and then dissipating to a solid frothy top with some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is grassy, fresh hops, hints of citrus and spice, light sweet malt finishes.

Taste follows the aroma but seems less fresh - hops are grassy, light citrus and earthy spice, malt follows with moderate sweetness and some toast.

Mouthfeel is moderate with light bitterness and lingering sweetness.

Overall a moderately hoppy session ipa with with pleasant malt base.

Pours a cloudy maize color. One inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong floral hops, citrus hops, alcohol, sweet malt, and a hint of spicy hops. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong floral hops, citrus hops, alcohol, sweet malt, and a hint of spicy hops. Overall, good appearance, body, and blend. Floral hops dominate, but still blend well.

Poured from a 12oz can into a clear glass tulip. 12/31/17 on bottom of can.

A: Clear light lemon gold with 1-2 finger head and lots of lacing.

S: Grapefruit and lemon hoppiness with some floral character too.

T: Flavor is pretty one-dimensional but enjoyable with citrus, pine, and floral hoppiness on a slightly crackery pale malt base. No yeast esters and moderately bitter.

M: Light with higher than expected carbonation.

O: Decent but not my favorite session IPA -- too much a lot of the same hoppy thing. WOuld much rather have Daytime or All-Day.

Hop Hash Easy IPA has a thick, off-white head, a sediment-filled, golden appearance, with lots of bubbles and some glass lacing. The aroma is of some white bread and mixed fruit. Taste is of sweet, white bread, fruit salad, and fairly strong bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Hop Hash Easy IPA finishes dry.
