The LowRyeder from SweetWater is very good and smooth. The beer pours a clear light copper with thin white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries fresh hop with hints of pine and bitter citrus. The taste is a great balance between sweet malt and bitter hop which finishes dry. The hops add a citrus flare with a touch of pine. The mouthfeel is lighter in body and good carbonation. Overall this is a great session beer for those that prefer a slightly bitter and dry beer...definitely worth a try.

Sweetwater LowRYEder IPA has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, a few streaming bubbles, and some thin lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but one can detect citrus, hop oil, and bread crust. Taste is very much of mild grapefruit, with some white bread, white bread crust, sweetness, low bitterness, and a shade of peppery rye. Mouthfeel light to medium and a bit slick. Sweetwater LowRYEder finishes dry, refreshing, sweet, and easy going. Overall, this is very good, but not particularly different.

Appearance: Poured a medium copper from a 12 oz bottle into my Founders snifter. Nice one finger fluffy white head and solid lacing, good looking beer.

Smell: Citrus forward, with some grapefruit, tangerine, and peach coming to mind. Also some pine and earthy notes, can sense the rye as well.

Taste: Moderate hoppiness with some pine and spiciness coming through, notable citrus with some lemon and grapefruit coming through, decent tasting.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with low to moderate bitterness and a decent kick. Could use a bit more balance I think, but not bad.

Overall: This wasn't great, but I'd drink it again. I like their traditional IPA slightly better but this is worth a try.
