COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tingling with excitement, el dank hopped the fur bus and rolled to the panic show at The Fox. Boogieing down to Chilly Water, he noodled into a cute little wookie that blew his mind and yanked him from some post show get down at the Clermont lounge. Stumbling and bumbling with blondie, he got booted, and went home for some shut eye. Dreaming of the wet wookie, he awoke to his dog licking his tongue, realizing he was late for his night shift at SweetWater. Fumbling through his brew and dry hopping duties, el danko hit the wall, and passed out mid-shift. Waking up to Nick Nock screaming WTF, he frantically ran around putting out fires. As the haze cleared he realized he had left the mill running, jacking up the OG and dry hopping the wrong tank. Fuddied up after the most insane 36 hours, el Danko pondered his delirious creation, a chubby 420 India Pale Ale! Huh??? Ducking trouble, he quickly swept the abominable snowman under the rug, as he sent the 420 IPA to the bottling line boys in an effort to hide his momentoustus F- up.

bottle. clear orange with a very small white head. stinky earthy piney hops(simcoe?) and sweet crystal malt nose. hop flavors are similar to the nose and the malts have a mix of caramel and tea flavors. the abv is hidden. tastes a little raw or green to me with some residuals. right down the middle for me.

22oz bottle, fresh release, just came in today. Served at around 45F.

Pours clear amber with a nice three finger off-white/light beige head that leaves nice rings of drippy lacing and holds a small cap.

Aroma is big on hops with citrus, some tropical fruit, pineapple, a bit of apricot, a bit dank, along with some caramel and bready malt underneath. Very good strength.

Flavor is resinous hops, citrus, fruity hops, apricot, fairly prominent sweet malt backbone featuring some caramel and candy, good bitterness on the finish, a bit of alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied, a bit oily and sticky, good carbonation.

Yet another tasty Dank Tank creating. An Imperial 420? Yup. Nailed it. Big and hoppy but with a malt backbone to back it up. Incredibly drinkable too...this could get dangerous...

Bright copper pour with a decent head. Left lots of lace. Aroma was somewhat nice, good bit of citrus, some pine, tons of caramel and some booze. Flavors were big time sweet up front, caramel for days. Some citrus crept in but the sweet maltiness masked just about anything else. Light bittersweet finish, oily and smooth. Mouthfeel was rather big for the style. Somewhat seemed under-fermented. The FG could have lost a few points for the better on this one...

Bomber. Pours clear copper brown with a lingering white head. Very nice lacing. Aroma is a floral mixture of hops and fruit. The flavor is a perfect balance of floral and citrus hops with a nice backbone of malt. The alcohol bite is subtle and unassuming but no doubt in attendance. If this is an el dank mistake then let’s toast to the hope that he makes many more. This would undoubtedly compliment a full platter of spicy nachos or hot wings. Bravo to the lads (and ladies) at Sweetwater.
