SweetWater India Pale Ale
While in South Carolina, I made sure to pick up some SweetWater beers. The first I tried was the India Pale Ale. The beer has a golden color with a bubbly white head. The aroma consists of lemon and citrus hops with a nice dose of pine. The taste is lemony and orangey with a light grapefruit undertone. It also has a nice dry pine hop finish. I that that there was also a little bit of sweetness, like sugar on grapefruit. The alcohol content is 6.7% ABV. This was a really decent IPA, not overly hoppy and nicely done with a great sweet citrus flavor.
