(Served in a bowtie glass)
A- This beer pours a touch of haze to a orange body with a thin ring of white foam supported by a few big bubbles working to the surface.
S- The notes of light toasted malt have a mineral quality to them with some caramel sweetness growing in the finish. A faint hint of green hops come through as it warms.
T- The dandelion greens hop flavor is all bitterness from start to finish for the first few sips. The dandelion milk bitterness stains the tongue as it lingers after each sip. There are some British hop qualities that come through as it opens and some watery malt notes try to fight its way in but the bitterness just dominates.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a gentle carbonation in the finish.
O- The full bitterness dominates and stains the tongue with really no other hop character standing a chance. There are faint malt hints but they remain buried. This beer was all one sided with no other character and it was tough to get through the glass.

First off I wasn't impressed with this because it instantly smelled like marijuana to me!
A: A good looking amber golden
S: Weed! Smelled like very dank hops and weed. Which I didn't like at all to be honest.
T: Still had the week on my palate so it tasted like it as well...
M: Typical IPA mouthfeel with a clean finish but still had a lingering weed feel...
O: I'm sure pot smokers would love this but I didn't like it.
Serving type: on-tap
