Haven't tried it but my parents were in Atlanta this past weekend and I had them buy me a 6 pack of it. I'll be tasting it in May when I go back to Illinois to visit. Is that the 420 IPA? or is the 420 just a regular pale ale?

It is an awesome beer. I first had it when touring their brewery in Atlanta. I'm thinking of brewing up a clone.

Sweet Water IPA is it's own brew then there is the Sweet water 420.

They have others........ I have brewed a SW 420 & SW Blue and might do a SW IPA.

Care to share the recipe for the 420? And the IPA when you have it?

We can't get it here, but when I was vacationing in the Florida panhandle this winter, I saw it in Tallahassee, and bought some. I loved it so much I bought more and the pale ale, too. I definitely liked the IPA more than the pale ale.

I love them both well so far all the sweetwater brews. However that 420 pale ale is my fav......

I did a clone and man it's spot on......

I love the Sweetwater IPA. One of the few six packs I'd buy in AL. My second fav brew of theirs next to SW Happy Ending.

I have heard from several people that know Sweetwater very well that the IPA is 100% Simcoe... that should get you started I guess.
