What do you think? I prefer the 420 pale ale. It's funny here in the S.E., they've been around for quite a while now that I consider them a gateway craft beer! Awesome brewery tour though if you're ever in Atlanta.

yeah sweetwater IPA just average.

I did have a couple bottles of Victory Pale Ale. Its either bottle conditioned or its not filtered-hazy and a little sediment in bottle. This one I liked and would keep drinking.

I found most of the Sweetwater stuff average.  Since you mentioned Victory, if you haven't had DirtWolf it is fantastic.

Victory Headwater is one of my favorite pale ales... Not as good as Alpha King or Burning River, but it's up there.

Dirt Wolf is pretty damn good. Here's a thread that Jon started in it a few months back...,

All of the victory beers I find in Dallas are way past date. I found a sixer of hop devil that was one week away from the best by date and almost crapped myself.

Imported beers are even worse. I once found a punk ipa that was four months past date.
