4.03/5  rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber capped by a buoyant head that leaves a curtain of lace

Smell: Resinous, piney and need I say it - dank

Taste: Shortbread and pine jump right out, with the dank bitterness and tropical fruit tones building through the middle; after the swallow, the sweeter flavors return for another round but they are soundly walloped by the hop bitterness, in the finish; a bit oniony in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I have passed on a lot of Sweetwater beers over the last few years but this one is a good effort; it lacks the finesse of some of the better DIPAs out there but it is certainly a challenger

"Johnny Hash"- I get it. You've attached yourself to a rugged, raw and brash personality, and then matched that with the same renegade spirit in taste. "Is that marijuana? ...wait, what?"....

But upon the pour, there's no alerts to its questionable fashion. Bright golden, the beer's bright clarity is uncharacteristic of such boastfully hoppy ale. Yet, that brilliance sheds an eggshell-white foam that caps the beer with the confidence of a honeycomb sheet and trails with broken lace.

Bursting with vibrant hop aromas, the beer projects the tangy and pungent scents of citrus and tropical fruit while weaving together an herbal and floral roundness. Its perfume of grapefruit, orange, mango, apricot is pulled together with chive, catty, grassy tones to suggest the characteristics of cannabis. -no real surprise there.

Its taste opens with a dripping but thinned honey and caramel flavor taste. Prideful in its malt sweetness, the follow of pink grapefruit, mandarin orange, mango, apricot and passion fruit all gives the tasted a hop tilt. Its smooth and fruity finish is delicate with alcohol spice and minty all the while.

Medium bodied, lighter impressions are had despite the beer's sweeter upstart that clings to the mouth. Its round middle is playful starchy texture is rich malt, but it also fades to a dry and warm texture with no astringency.

I absolutely adore this beer, even though it's not the best IPA on the market; its sensible irritability links up with imaginative brewers with the same contention that real beer deserves.

Pours into a small tulip glass a clear vibrant light golden with a large fluffy white crown that clings to the side of the glass it sellever so slowly,just a great pour.Alot of citrus going on in the nose and not a whole lot of sweetness wich is a good thing.Alot of tangerine and orange on the palate with a good amount of fusel alcohol,pretty raw and in your face really,it seems bigger than it actually is.Not overly sweet wich is good although the sweetness gets a little bigger as I drink more,the hops are fresh and the flavor profile is a little different wich I like,like i said the alcohol to me seems bigger than its 8.5% abv. that it is.Very good.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, golden-caramel coloring with a clingy, filmy, bright white head. Aromas of grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine resin, berry sweetness, and a caramel backbone. Very resinous and deep, rich nose. This beer engulfs your sense of smell. Flavors are resinous and bitter forward, with a dank, wet, green envelope over your palate. Moss, cut grass, cannibus, cedar, pine pitch, and earth all meld together on your taste buds, with a subtle caramel backbone to provide some momentary balance. Smooth, light, crisp body, with an insane hops characteristic throughout the aftertaste. Tropical fruit highlights on an otherwise dank, resinous, green aftertaste. The finish is slick, smooth, and fairly dry at the very end. Solid brew. I will be searching this one out again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear gold with a creamy, clinging white head.

S: Aromas of pine, spruce, lemon, lime, grapefruit, honey, grass, herbs, and biscuits are immediately evident on the nose.

T: Strong notes of lemon, lime, grass, bitter herbs, bitter orange, grapefruit, pine, spruce, carambola, biscuits, caramel, honey, and crackers throttle the palate. The finish is bitter, resinous, and intense with pronounced flavors of lemon, lime, grapefruit, biscuit, and caramel.

M: Medium in body and initially resinous, though it dries out a bit just prior to the fade. Carbonation is crisp and firm. Alcohol is well masked.

O: A very strong DIPA that should please fans of hoppy ales.

Massive thanks to 2000drafts who slammed me with 2 rounds of extras, this being in round 2. Took this bomber down in a markintihar pour in my batch 2 TB snifter.

Brew pours a transparent orange with a thin bubbly head from my careful pour. The head never fully went away and lacing was streaky. Nose is dank. Fresh crisp citric, light and not resinous. Flavor is light hip syrup. Big citric notes, doesn't feel like a double. Really nice. Easy drinker abv is invisible. Really enjoyable. Glad to have tried it.

Clear gold, topped with some nice, white frothiness. Definite Citra fruitiness hits the nose straightaway: pungent, musky, pulpy fruit, pineapple, and sugary grapefruit. Big floral and super oily hop aromas too, with some herbal spiciness and a touch of dank. Big-time fruity hops in the flavor, which is no surprise. A ripe fructose sweetness, pink grapefruit juice, peaches, limes, melons, and passion fruit. Floral hops too, along with a light malt presence, but nothing that disrupts the hop blast. Fluffy, medium bodied mouthfeel leading to a dry finish. Super fruity and dripping with hop oils, though not much from the marijuana side of things, which is fine considering I think they were more using the hash and kief references to describe the look and feel of the pelletizer scrapings.
