SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale

It must be 4:20 somewhere.

SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale (5.4% ABV): SweetWater’s most popular beer is the winner of a 1998 World Beer Cup Silver Medal and a 2002 Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal.  This extra pale ale pours a clear copper gold color and rich white foam that leaves a nice lace.  420 has a nice aroma of biscuit malt with grapefruit and grapefruit pith bouquet.  The beer is medium-bodied with mild carbonation.  420 has nicely integrated flavors of biscuit, citrus, and grapefruit pith.  There is a crisp, dry finish with a delightful lingering bitterness.  This is a good session-style extra pale ale with west coast style, but my heart lies with Sierra Nevada.
