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.

Light caramel/hop aroma, taste is spritzing and light,but pleasant enough,has a very distinct sweetness to it,only the slightest of bitterness sensations.Would make an outstanding session brew

Golden in color with light foam. The aroma is intense and very full for a PA which is probably why i enjoy it so much when i cant get an IPA at the bar. Great hoppy and light beer.

I also sampled this while down in Atlanta. I have to say this is a really great pale ale. Pours a darker golden color with a nice prickly head. This stuff smells fairly sweet actually with the hops taking a backseat on the nose. Taste is a whole different story! This beer is sticky, sweet, citrus, and just hoppy enough to give a crisp kick. Excellent stuff and if I could get it more easily I might drink this from time to time over SN Pale Ale.

12oz bottle (thanks to jrob_21) poured a clear pale/gold color with almost no head. Aroma was sweet malt and not that much of a hop nose. Taste was well rounded with a good bitterness and malt profile. Could use more carbonation.

Thanks to decaturstevo for this, yellow pour with white frothy head. Nose of citrus with sweetness to it. Flavor is rather smooth, with a crisp clean finish.
