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.

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.

Such a hoppy brew. 420 is great but this beer has so much more bitterness. Glad I got to sip on it.

What an outstanding beer. Certainly one of my favorites. Very hoppy, grassy, dry taste that no doubt came from the 420 line. It is such a shame that this beer is a one of a kind. It will be missed

22oz bottle, blue and yellow label. Dark amber, fluffy head, nice lace. Looks like a 420. Smells like an Imperial 420. Hoppy citrus and pine, sweet pale malts. Aroma of cereal and hops. Yum. Tastes like HOPS. Soapy hop character, lots of fruit, mixed berries, apricot pit bitterness, sharp pine and wooded timber bite. Very hoppy. Period. Oily body. Malt sweetness adds some balance to the overall bitterness. Finishes with a green hop and resinous hop oily character that make me want to take the next sip. Don’t plan on tasting anything else after drinking this bottle, unless we’re talking some spicy chili. Hearty, spicy food pairs perfect for this hop bomb. Out of all of the Dank Tank brews, this one has really got me.

I’m not usually an IPA drinker but this is great. Smell is a little off at first even musty, but the flavor is great. It lives up to its name, most IPA’s are bitter and leave a bad after taste; but sweetwater 420 is really good and refreshing. If this is your first IPA, it might as well be your last. Good brew

22 oz. bottle. Pours dark copper with a thin beige head and nice lacing. The aroma is strong hop notes of pine, resin and flowers. The flavor is very bitter, with nice malt balance. The palate is medium to heavy, a little astringent, and smooth. Overall, this is a great feeling, tasty IPA.

Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange with a two finger slightly off-white head. Nice lacing. Smell is sugary tropical fruits, resin and citrus and a fresh green aspect. Taste is very big tropical (mango, apricot, mandarin orange, pineapple) with citrus and a big sweet malt component. Mouthfeel was full, slushy and oily. The flavor is so big on the tropical fruits it’s almost a fault, but the mouthfeel was incredible for this brew. I say if the exotic hop flavor is your bag then this is a must try. Another great brew from the dank tank series.
