Sweet Wate: Goin' Coastal

Why Kirk Enjoys this Beer….
“When I first heard about this new beer from Sweetwater I knew that it was going to be fantastic! IPA’s from their Atlanta brewery never disappoint and when you add pineapple to the mix, it has got to be good! It was initially released as a seasonal brew and I was disappointed when I saw it begin to disappear for the season last summer, but now that it is available all year long I am ready for this one to jump back into my rotation. The subtle yet full flavor taste of pineapple sneaks in amidst that immense citrus hop zest to add just the right amount sweetness and creates a well balanced easy drinking IPA with a quick and crisp finish. My summers are spent at the lake, and that is exactly where this beer belongs too!”

Taste Profile:
Slide into summer and step off the grid by Goin’ Coastal with this pineapple laced IPA. The bright aromas of the five citrus hop additions are accentuated by the tropical fruit of the pineapple – and just like those three day weekends, its finish is quick.
