3.6/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Agree with another poster that this is borderline IPA in appearance (darker amber) and smell (I can't get much of anything, maybe a little orange). This pour had almost no head, and the resulting feel is sort of flat.

The taste is actually overall not that bad, some orange, honey, maybe papaya sweetness backed by a piney bitterness. There's a hint of alcohol, as well, but very light.

Overall, I didn't find this a remarkable drink, but it was decent. I won't seek it out, but might grab one as a change of pace sometime.

I reviewed a previous iteration of this beer when it was originally released on tap as Smells Like Weed. Now that it’s bottled and widely available I thought it would be fun to revisit.
This pours a vibrant amber with creamy toffee colored foam. There’s a great aroma on it. I'm getting lots pine and some orange dank notes. I found it to have a pleasing bitter assault with lingering piney notes makes for one delicious beer.
