Sweetwater "IPA"
Sweetwater Brewing Company - Atlanta, Georgia USA
IPA (ABV 6.4%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a medium hazy amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that had awesome longevity, lasting throughout thus producing some really excellent sticky sheets of lace.

The aroma was a little mild with a citrus hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with light notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was not as strong as I expected it to be, but had a mild maltiness and a hint of caramel early on and then became slightly bitter with a mild citrus note at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with the taste of hops growing slightly as time went on.

Mouthfeel was light in body and had a dry texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall a very light hopped IPA with the complexity kept to a minimum. That being said it was nice and refreshing and had a great drinkability.
