  • Sweetwater 420 Strain G13
    rated 3.2 1 month ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    Does have a bit of that dank pot aroma in the nose. Average hazy IPA appearance not much lace. Mouth is a bit thin. Doesn't really taste like 6% in fact it tastes a lot like like many low alcohol ipas, not that this is one but it tastes like one, essentially as if you're just drinking hop water. I think the malt characteristic could be stronger it does just ever so slightly remind me of losing a bet and having to drink the bong water.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Nose as unusual as its name. Very faint vanilla, bubblegum, touch of grass. NEIPA milkshake body is cloudy pale peach, moderate off-white head leaves skim coat and no lace. Thin body, good tingle. Non-descript flavor profile is un-complex, surprisingly pils-like, grass, apricot, sessionable.

    Mild inoffensive NEIPA nose, perhaps slightly less tropical than most; guava, mango, touch of grass and biscuit. Fogged pale gold body topped with ok head and good lace and little leaves a good skim. Nice in the mouth, tingly just right, a bit slippery and medium bodied. I am liking the flavor profile. Its NEIPA but moderate, I am wondering if there is wheat in the malt bill. Alcohol at the end is slightly warming. The finish is very clean and almost no aftertaste. There is a nice bitterness in mid swallow and before that just a touch of tropical profile; maybe tangerine and a wee wee hint of pulp.

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 9

    Very mild (too mild) nose with some pasture and a hint of lemon. I am a bit new to Kazbek hops, interesting. Clear medium gold body topped with minimal white head that leaves a skim coat and a hint of sudsy lace.The effervescence keeps coming. Mouth hints at creamy and is nicely fizzy. There is an unusual flavor profile here, I can't quite put my finger on it, might be coming from the house lager yeast. Finish is very clean, its a lovely pils flavor with what is maybe a hint of deep ripe fruit, plum? Bittering level is spot on for style. This is EXTREMELY SESSONABLE! (wish there was more nose)

    Rerate 7/2021 Mild nose of malt not really a lot going on there. Cloudy copper / orange body pores almost no head and no lace. Mouth is slightly watery with a bit of a tingle. Flavor is malt forward possibly Crystal malts a bit sweet certainly not complex a hint of bitter and the Finish you could probably drink a lot of this it reminds me of McSorley's.
