Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale - SweetWater Brewing Company. Poured from a tall can into a glass, this has got a d finger thick head with lacing, and a body,

I smell west coast hops, nothing really resembling cannabis despite the name of this product.


Tastes like the classic grapefruit notes of a west coast IPA, but this does not bring forth bitterness and gets rounded off mid palate by earthy malts. This is a pretty refreshing.

The mouthfeel I'm getting here is clean and smooth. No lingering taste.

Overall, I'll give Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale - SweetWater Brewing Company a 4.25. This is a quenching brew that I'll probably grab again.

Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale brewed by SweetWater Brewing Company. This brew has an ABV of 5.40% The pour on this brew is a nice amber color with a smell white head.
Sweetwater 420 is a filtered brew, you can see right though it. The smell is rich with hops and grains. You also pick up on some malts in the smell of this brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavor. There is a lot going on in this brew. Hops is the first thing you pick up on, but it is not over powering to brew. The mouthfeel is, bitter, but smooth. Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale has a nice balance to it there is nothing overpowering in this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.25 out of 5.

One of my favorites. The extra pale makes it very mild in terms of bitter hoppiness
