Amber in color with a finger of white head that quickly settles. Dear lord, this beer is dank: there's maybe a little bit of sweet malt, sweet citrus, and grapefruit on the nose, but earthy hop notes take center stage. The smell of freshly cut grass, weed, and hop oil slaps you in the face. Given the back-story of this beer and the way it smells, I believe that Lagunitas set out to make a beer that smells as close to marijuana as possible. It tastes teeth-clenchingly bitter with herbal hops, grapefruit, peach, a sweet cracker malt presence, and the oniony finish of an extremely hopped beer or a beer made with Summit hops. It has a dry, medium body and is full of mouth-coating hop resin. At nearly 11% ABV, this beer is dangerously crushable, so watch out.
Serving type: on-tap
