Golden in color with light foam. The aroma is intense and very full for a PA which is probably why i enjoy it so much when i cant get an IPA at the bar. Great hoppy and light beer.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Somewhat low on aromas but palate and flavors are excellent with an expertly balanced bitterness and a smooth, refreshing mouthfeel.

On draft. Pours deep hazy orange, creamy off white head. Smells of floral hops. Very drinkable and taste of floral hops with a nice dry finish. Very drinkable and very good pale ale!

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is hop driven. The taste is bitter hops. A solid beer.

Nice local brew. I like the aromatic hoppy flavor and find it quite refreshing. Too bad it occasionally gives me a headache... maybe they are brewing this with Atlanta's god awful municipal water?

First off, what ever roder60 is drinking it aint the right beer ( danm the steelers too). This beer is great, drinkable, flavorful, complex, callled 420. If you don’t like this beer, you are not a good beer drinker. And it’s not just the sotherner in me, this brew has everything in balance, such is the subtle art of the Sweetwater brewers. Yall just try it!
