I know for a fact that there are sacks and sacks of Cascade hops in their brewery. Perhaps there are others but I would stick with strictly american hops.
I would think it is 1056 American Yeast.
FG is quite low, 1.008 or so. I think OG would be around 1.052-54.
12 oz of 40L, give or take.
Maybe about 36-40 IBU.
It is a good American Pale Ale but I don't think there is anything special in their recipe OTHER than the fact that it is very light but with a nice (but not overpowering) hoppiness. Great Aroma, don't over-bitter it but do dry hop it.
If you are in atlanta go to the brewery tours (parties!) which they have a few times a week. Do some asking and snooping around.
I just had this beer for the first time at the fourth of July when a friend brought me a bottle from his trip to Atlanta. That was not the only beer I drank on the 4th of July, so apart from remembering that it was hoppy and that I liked it, I'm relying on some pretty fuzzy memories ...
When I'm researching a specific beer, I always check a brewery's homepage first for any info on ingredients - http://www.sweetwaterbrew.com/brews.asp?section=420
In this case though they just say that it's 5.4% alcohol.
Then I googled the beer, and found this link:

... which, under the "commercial description" section, says they use:
"Malts: 2 Row, Munich, Carastan 30-37
Hops: Centennial, Cascade"
You probably want an OG in the neighborhood of 1.050 to 1.055, IBUs somewhere between 30 and 40 (fuzzy memories plus educated guess), and with an American-type ale yeast you should be in the ballpark.
