Extremely light pale ale. Lacks excitement next to other Pa's. Easy drinking.

Sweetwater Extra Pale Ale is a misnomer- Extra implies something "extra." Perhaps extra Water?

This is a light weight IPA with a low ABV of ? ?

I couldn't locate an ABV listed on the bottle or label, but Beeradvocate lists it as 5.4%.

This is a tame IPA and on the light side. If you lean towards a light beer IPA, buy it. I prefer more IBU's.
