A hazy golden color with a nice head, some lacing. Smells like a good beer. mouthfeel is good but not remarkable. The flavor is milder than I had expected. Very drinkable.
I did a side by side taste test with Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale and Sweetwater IPA. The IPA is similar, a little darker in color and a little more robust in flavor, hoppier. The 420 had a more noticeable aroma, but maybe that was because I sniffed it first. both are good. If you served me one and told me it was the other, I wonder if I would notice the deception. I think I would - the hops give it away.

My Sweetwater 420 had a different label that the one shown here on BA and stated the ABV to be 5.7% rather than 5.4%

Classic IPA taste, but light and very drinkable. Refreshing flavor.

On tap from a Delta Sky Club at Hartsfield-Jackson airport, Atlanta GA. Very pretty opaque light amber that leaves light lacing as you drink, and a steady stream of light carbonation bubbles as well from the bottom of the glass. Taste is almost like a “light” IPA, very easy to drink. Smells piney and citrusy but nothing dominant. Not bitter, but the hops shine and are well balanced with a slight malty backbone. Overall a pretty good beer, I would have a few again.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a weizen glass. Attractive appearance: hazy pale amber color, with a thick snow-white head that left some spotty lacing before settling into a thin ring. A continuous stream of bubbles rises from the bottom of this glass, enhancing the appearance. Aroma is light but dank, with notes of citrus, pine, light caramel malt, and a hint of cat piss. Nicely balanced and light on the palate, with moderate bitterness and an exceptionally dry and crisp finish. Overall, a fine session pale ale and an exceptional cookout beer.
