Summer Beers 2012

Well, it's a new year and a new summer so I thought it appropriate to refresh this topic with a shout out to my new favorite summer beer, Sweetwater IPA. It's brewed in Georgia, and to be honest, being in the southeast myself, I don't know how far Sweetwater's distribution stretches. This beer is crisp, full-bodied with a bitter finish that at times reminds me of bergamot or grapefruit (Sweetwater credits the hops for the flavor). Unfiltered and unpasturized, this is a beer with some tooth, but as Belgians are a little heavy for me in the summer, this has been a fantastic alternative sans lime, lemon or orange sections on the rim of my glass.
