Very nice IPA if yall have a chance to pick one up. Very nice grapefruity/citrusy finish to it that I can't define. Perhaps it's Summit hops? Anyone have any ideas on this beer?

Whenever I get that grapefruity aroma, I always think one of the C hops.

Here's what a quick google search pulled up: Sweetwater IPA from Sweetwater Brewing Company, a India Pale Ale (IPA) style beer: An unofficial page for Sweetwater IPA from Sweetwater Brewing Company in Atlanta, Georgia , United States of America

Quote:
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

Malt: 2 Row, Pale Malt, Munich, 70-80 Crystal, Wheat

Hops: Columbus, Golding

Dry Hop: Columbus, Golding

Last year I was on the way to Tampa. Had a night of drinking before, plane left Nashville at 8am, had a 3 hour stop in ATL. I had 4 at the Airport before continuing my journey. Great stuff. One of my favorite IPA's.

Anyone have a clone for this? I know the key is the Simcoe (I asked.). I can't get it locally, and would love to brew a case of this.
