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.

Had from a 12 oz bottle in a generic beer glass...

A = Pretty orange color. Crystal clear. Nice head and good lacing. So far so good.

S = Nothing overwhelming. Perhaps some slight hints of citrus.

T = Once again, kind of underwhelming.

M = Nice creamy mouthfeel. Perhaps due to its lack of taste, there are no lingering bitter tastes left over.

O = Didn't hate this beer, but I certainly didn't love it. No need to go out of my way to find it.
