A- 3.5 The 420 pours a very clear straw yellow with a decently sized 1/2 finger white head that isn't uniform. The lacing is pretty slippery but sticky in spots. Carbonation is visible.
S- 4 I like this. It doesn't provoke senses of anything exotic, but I do get a bit of a citrus hop and a sweet, malty backbone. The combo definitely says caramel.
T- 3.5 Not all that complex, but a decent mix of mild hops and malts balance it well. It hits with a bitterness that lasts but a second or two then turns to the malt. It is a little bland, but not bad. Finishes fairly sweet.
M- 3 Pretty light in body and a high carbonation give this an average feel. A little on the watery side though the carbonation helps a tad in that sense.
D- 4 Despite not being crazy good in any one area I feel I could drink several of these. It goes down easily and has a good enough aroma and taste. It is balanced. I'd imagine it would be even better fresh off the line or on draft. A refreshing, easy-to-drink brew that's worth a shot.

Purchased at a grocery store in Birmingham Alabama. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens well and pours a pretty good head. Golden unfiltered goodness
S- Lots of hops here. A bit of caramel
T- Very good with a lot of finishing hops. Super easy drinking and not bitter like other IPA's
M- Dry and crisp
O- Very good. Like this one a lot. Wish I could get it in Canada
I tried this wonderful IPA with... smoked beef brisket, it didn't go well at all.
