The taste wasnt necessarily bad but it was not for me, it was like a crisp lager but there was an overwhelming dank taste, that strongly made me think of marijuana. Not for me.

Quite enjoyable. Straw yellow with a big, bright white cap, lots of clinging lace. Solid hop nose, a bit citrusy and fruity. Balanced bitterness with sweetness in the finish. Soft carbonation and smooth texture. Another winner from Jack's Abby.

Bottle from Drum Hill Liquors
The hops used portion of the label has nothing written on it so I assume it is this version.
Pours a slightly hazy light straw color with a huge frothy bone white head that persists forever. Aromas of floral earthy pine and resin with just a hint of bready malt deep underneath. Pine earthy resinous hop flavor with moderate bitterness. Faint bready maltiness. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation. Very nice brew! I am so ready for you to distribute to NH!
