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.

3.29/5  rDev -17.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Bottle dated 4/29/14 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of conifers with some citrus thrown in
Head small (2 cm), off white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to broken ring and broken layer
Lacing OK – irregular islands and atolls with small to medium bubbles
Body dark orange, cloudy
Flavor of pine and malt, bitter aftertaste with long hangtime. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation

This IPA has reached the end of its drinkable life span. It still smells like an IPA and has the mouth feel of an IPA, but it is ugly (Looks dirty – like an infected urine.) and is definitely malty. If I could have read the date when I bought it, I wouldn’t have. That will be a thread shortly
