Not much aroma. Lighter orange color with lighter cloudiness. Light start and not much of a finish. Kind of bland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet Water 420 reminded me of Sierra Nevadaís Pale Ale in a couple of ways, namely in that theyíre both solid beers that a lot of people donít like to love so much. 420 pours golden and has just enough of a hop profile to remind you youíre drinking a pale ale, but itís smooth on the finish and smells faintly of citrus. A good beer!

BIF project 2. Appearance: Pours opaque burnt orange with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: muted caramel malt; citrus and floral hops slightly in the background. Taste: sweet, malt forward, minimal hop presence. Palate: flat, oily. Pretty good beer.

Super dry and hoppy. Lots of hoppiness and crackery biscuity malt. On draft itís lightyears better than bottles or even cans. This is usually my go to airport beer for some reason. Itís perfect for crushing before a long flight. Sweetwater beers are always excellent and this is kind of a staple for them. Definitely consistent whenever you have it. Cheers!

Tap pour at Mtc Office. Aroma of citrus, mostly grapefruit, with hints pf pine. Taste of grapefruit with mixture of floral and pine. Very slight hop bite at end. Pretty enjoyable but not distinctive.
