I've had 420 many times. It is one of my staple beers. It is one of those beers that is perpetually inviting, excellent for warm summer days and the beach. It is an excellent Extra Pale Ale with an above average flavor and aroma. The mouthfeel is crisp, perfect for the thirsty soul. Enjoy!

Pours a orange-yellow with a moderate head. Had a nice malty hay scent to it. As an APA I thought it would have more a hoppy bite..but no was a little smoother than I expected. Still has a good taste with a citris/orange peel note...followed by some hops and malt. Very drinkable. Some bite in the aftertaste..but still kinda mild.
Would I buy again...sure...not a bad beer with food. Would I plunk down 8 bucks for a 6...maybe. Overall not bad. I would like to see a little more boom..but we can live with that.
