SweetWater India Pale Ale (6.4% ABV): This IPA pours a clear copper gold color with white foam. Hops dominates the aroma with strong smells of grapefruit and grapefruit pith. SweetWater IPA is creamy and medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. The taste starts with huge flavors of grapefruit and grapefruit pith. Malt biscuit manages to sneak onto your palate somewhere in the middle. A crisp, dry finish follows with lingering hops bitterness. This is a hop lover’s delight but better integration of malt flavors would take this beer from very good to outstanding.
