Light unclear golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Caramel malty, a bit fruity and citric. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Caramel malty, fruity and citric flavor. Quite fresh and nice.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 Light copper color. Mild spicy hop aroma. Taste dominated by hops, smoothly bitter that leaves dry aftertaste. Medium body and light carbonation. Overall solid pale ale, real bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my gateway beers that got me introduced to craft beer over a decade ago when Sweetwater wasn't the in the verge of exploding brewery it is today. Typical pale ale, very crisp and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Fruity hop aroma. Taste is dry, slightly peppery, with some citrus notes and a bitter finish. Nice pale ale.

Decent hop/malt balance, crisp and lightly bitter. Nothing I need to seek out again but drinkable.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours amber with a white head. Light floral aroma with a little pine. Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation. Light metal, lemon, light caramel, some orange, pine... Not particularly interesting - its OK.

Well, doesn't smell like 420, but delish ;). Good forward hoppiness. Some bitterness, but overall solid beer.

BierMeHoos (264) - Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Pours golden with lots of sediment. Aroma of yeasts bready malts and hops. Tastes of cool malts and then spicy citrusy floral hops. Palate smooth mouthfeel and lasting finish. Not a fan favorite for me.

cheap (4425) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Quite crisp on the uptake, initially. Has a rather medium to sharp hop bite. Looks decent in the glass. Good co2 fer sure, makes it refreshing, to an extent. Somewhat metallic aroma. Yes, don’t care for hopped beers, but this one comes across fresh, with every swig. Good and bubbly. Better than expected. Only IPA drawback is that it has a rather sharp ale finish.
