Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium golden amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that had good retention and left behind some spotty residue that produced some nice sketchy lacing.
The aroma was a little on the weak side with some citrus and floral hops, grain and straw malts and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, orange and grapefruit.
The taste was lightly sweet and a tad acidic with a hint of caramel and maybe some orange from the onset but quickly became very hoppy and bitter with a strong crisp citrus finish. The flavor only lasted a short while after the swallow and the taste mostly consisted of a hopped up grapefruit.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a nice light refreshing Pale Ale with a big dose of citrus. Most definitely could/would drink a few of these.

Light amber with very small head, little carbonation. Mild citrus aroma, actually bland. As is the taste, a decent malt taste but the hops are lost.

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a slightly hazy amber hue with a frothy off white head and spotty lacing. A slight malt aroma, but not much to speak of. A mild malt taste with a bitter finish. I’m not impressed. The 420 in the name suggests a better way to get your buzz on.

Draft in Bluffton, SC. Pours hazy amber with a thick, foamy off white head. Tastes like musky malt, light pine hops, some corn sweetness, smooth. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light citrus, light sweet corn, and light musky hops.

Purchased from the Shell station at the corner of West 8th and Lynn Street - Well, this is a fine example of a Pacific Coast India Pale Ale, with the standard grapefruit/pine flavor of the type. It’s a good beer.
