Poured into a Libby "Craft Pub" glass. Best before date is 21 July 2014, consumed about a month prior to that date.

a - pours dark golden amber with a dark copper tint. Beautiful head, looks like freshly made whipped cream that someone poured too much vanilla into and turned it a slight brownish color. There's a lot of circular motion going on with either carbonation or sediment below the head.

s - Light lemon notes, can smell the hops. Cream soda. Smells lighter than the color, if that makes sense. Not much else coming through.

t - Creamy, savory start, hoppy middle, melon (cantaloupe, pumpkin) finish. Unfortunately I don't really like cantaloupe, but that's just a personal preference.

m - Creamy, bubbly, and lingering.

o - This beer has a great look, but the smell is simple, and the taste needs something a little extra. Overall it's not a bad beer, but it could use something more.

Poured this gift into a pint glass. Nice light amber color and a pretty sticky two-finger white head that produces a little lace. Get an aroma of rising bread dough and some floral hops. Sweet smelling too. Flavors are white yeast sweet bread, with a tinge of caramel/vanilla, and a very pleasant mild, but slightly peppery and grassy hop nip. Nice feel and carbonation. I like this one a lot. Could drink several of these.

Came back after a day of hiking and geocaching and grabbed a 12 pack from Sheetz. Three of the bottles were Sweetwater 420. I drank two and enjoyed them both. I'm still not super knowledgeable about beers so I might be wrong on all of this.

It tasted a little like an IPA but not as IPA-ish. Much better colder than when it warmed up sitting on the table. I could see drinking this beer in the summer or the winter and I could probably drink more than one.
