Sweetwater Squeeze Box
Sweetwater Squeeze Box is an American IPA with natural grapefruit flavor, 6.1% ABV. Best by date of 02/02/17, opened on 11/16/16.
This IPA pours with a nice looking gold color that is just a touch hazy, and a good off white head that is leaving behind some excellent lacing. The aroma reminds me a good bit of a super fresh Sweetwater IPA. This has a ton of fresh ruby red grapefruit and some nice caramel malt to balance on the nose. The taste leans away from the year round offering comparison, Squeeze Box is more citrus forward in the taste. Grapefruit and tangerine dominate early, and are then joined by some cracker malt and a dry grassy finish. A little sweeter caramel malt is lurking in the background, and it likes to peek out towards the end of the taste. This is a mildly bitter IPA, I kind of feel like it could use a few more bittering hops.
I could see myself easily knocking back several of these in a session, this is a dangerously crushable at 6.1%.
