Road trips are balls-out adventures loaded with unexpected twists, just like when this beer hit black ice and got spun!. It started out as an IPA recipe, but halfway down the road it blew a tire and a Pilsner yeast was pitched as a spare; an IPP yo! The fiery Pilsner backbone adds a nitrous-like boost to the van load of hops that would make any German pucker up when those hop afterburners singe their lederhosen!

Brewed with a Lager yeast at Ale temps using Sterling hops and Pilsner Malt to make this a crisp and hoppy twisted up seasonal treat.

Bottle. Pours yellow with no head. Smells..... well, bad. Tastes like roasted corn. Hard on the palate. Not enjoyable.

I really cant call this one. Rather strong smell of not sure what on the nose. Goes down pretty smooth with no offensive aftertaste but nothing remarkable. I would recommend you stay away from this one.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a murky yellow. Aroma of citrus and bready yeasts. Flavor is better than when I first tasted this in May of this year at the Charlotte GA-CA-VA-NY-IN-MA meeting with alexanderj and kleyland. Some floral hops with a bitter bite. Crisp finish. Not too terribly bad, but not Sweetwater’s best effort.

12 oz bottle. Hoppy citurs aromas. Similar flavor with lemon and other citrus flavors. Finishes light and crisp. Not bad

Earthy, lemony APA aroma. This Sweetwater label is wearing on me. Sunny golden ale, slightly cloudy. Moderately hoppy, slightly sour, lemony. Very lightly briny. A good lawnmower ale, but lost in the no-man’s land between English and American hops and a Belgian-esque yeasting. Lemonpeel on the lips. Nothing spectacular. Reminds me a little of Lord Chesterfield, but better.

Is this macro crap? Looked like horse piss. Taste has to be close to that as well. Did not enjoy. I hope this is there worst offering.

Better than I could have hoped. Kind of smelled like cat piss, and tasted funky. Poured allright though looks nice, with a good head on it. Try it if you must.

Bottle from emacgee. Chill hazy medium gold pour with 1-finger whitish head. Aroma of bready, somewhat funky pale malt, hopcitrus. Tastes pale malty, with spicy floral notes, mild funky yeasty hints, and hopcitrus in the finish.

Ughsmash (7406) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear brighter golden with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet, dusty lemon zest and bready notes with another layer of lighter fruit behind.. on the softer side overall, and nothin’ wrong with it. The flavor was quite hoppy with lemon and floral notes primarily.. sweet bready notes and a bit of caramel beneath.. medium-long sharper bitter finish wasn’t so enjoyable. Lighter-bodied, sharp, and rather out of balance on the palate.. didn’t care too much for this.

I guess there is a Sweetwater Brew I don’t care much for.... The 420 is one of my favorite session beers. I think I would rather drink a coors than this, just based on the cost. Not a fan of the aftertaste of this one... at least with coors you just have basic beer... this is too swanky...
