16 ounce draft in City Market area of Savannah.

Golden orange color covered with about 1f of white froth. Slender rings of lacing and active small bubble carbonation.

Light citrus aroma and a hint of blueberry. Mosaic hops, perhaps?

Orange, grapefruit, and lightly Caramelized malt flavors. The orange has a sweet bite.

Medium body, bitter hops that keep going.

Definitely an old school AIPA.

Had Swamp Fox in the excellent Beer Garden at Moon River, Savannah, on draft into 18-oz. nonic pint.

This is a beautiful beer, pouring slightly hazy, deep gold, with 1-finger of creamy, near-white head that lasts and leaves lace etched down the glass. Mild but lasting caramel malt and floral aromas. A sweet beginning leads to some melon and hop bite, rather like an APA, before a bitter but slick finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours deep golden with white head. Aroma and taste is of citrusy hops, grain and ripe fruit. Medium smooth body. Sour in the finish. Ok brew.

Not awful but certainly not my favorite IPA. Some hop aroma and ok bittering yet lacks the impact I want from a great IPA. Amber with slight haze and med/low body.

Had a pint at the brewery today while touring Savannah for $6.50.

Beer was served amber orange with a decent white head upon the initial pour.

Nose had hints of citrus.

Taste initially was almost lager like, a nice clean pale malt base that provided a nice thirst quench on a warm and humid day. Hints of citrus became prevalent as the beer warmed.

Feel was medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall not a bad beer. I thought this beer missed the style mark a bit as this was the first beer of the day. Not bad, not great.

Pours hazy, orange-brown in color, with 1/2 inch head. Taste is honey, pine, and tangerine. Medium bodied, starts sweet then gets bitter and has strong bitter aftertaste. Makes for a solid warm weather sipper. One of the better Moon River beers I had.

I remembered having this one night in town visiting Savannah, It was memorable. This is a good beer to be appreciated from an experienced IPA drinker. Not the best, but worth while and I would recommend seeing the brewery as well.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus and hops. The taste is packed full of hops with some citrus at the end. A really enjoyable beer.

On Tap at "The shrimp Factory" on the river walk downtown Savannah. Surprisingly good. 7% goes a long ways. Smooth, rich texture, golden color, crazy legs. Good beer!

On tap.
Light Amber body topped by a good head.
Overly thin body is well carbonated (medium) but a bit watery.
Fruity and herbal hop aroma with faint bready malts.
Moderate to light hop load and bitterness for style.
