Courtesy pintocb. Clear gold and a large frothy, white head. Spicy, floral, lightly resinous hops with nearly enough malt to balance. Aroma is similar but muted. Finishes a bit grainy. Medium/light body, balanced, very drinkable. Decent pale.

This was a nice beer. It poured light golden brown and had a firm head. The aromatic notes certainly pushed through with light hints of citrus and hops. The moutfeel was outstanding and just the right balance of bitterness and crispness.

Not the best attributes..but I will buy it again...a slightly above average APA...gets the 3.5 due to its drinkability...

Real nice brew here, be a good session beer, as they say. Good hop profile for sure, compartive to the hometown Summit Extra pale ale, but doenst have quite as much bite as that one. Very easy to drink.

Thank you Mr. Cougar. I’ve wanted to sample this for a while because it has 420 on it and I used to like to smoke lots of reefer. Every now and again, you get an IPA and you say "Damn, this smells like dope". But this doesn’t. it smells like a nice, light IPA. Not bad, not great, but totally drinkable. Some simcoe and/or amarillo might have hopped up the 420 concept some more, but for what it is, this is a nice drinking beer.

smooth beer. As far as pale ale’s go, this one is pretty good. has enough hops in it without being too aggressive.

12 ounce bottle from pintocb. Pours a pale amber color with white head. I would say that there is nothing "west coast" about this beer. The aroma and flavor are dominated by the Munich malt. The hops are certainly second fiddle here, and come off more floral than the typical citrus. I guess overall I like that beer, but its just not what I was expecting. Thanks Larry

Pours a dark yellow with small white head.Has a sweet malty hop aroma.Sweet malt makes up most of the flavor with a subtile hop note followed by nice bitter ending. This brew is pretty watery,but has a nice flavor. This could be a all nite drinker brew.
