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.

There is nothing to shy away. This is a good beer.

Pours a nice yellow beer. Has some carbonation. Smell is light. Almost citrusy. Taste is good. This is a solid mainstream beer. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to shy about. Good stuff! Sweetwater is a good brewery.

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.

APPEARANCE: Pours a beautiful, bright golden honey color. Big two finger loose off white head. Had nice retention stuck around for a long time.

AROMA: Very aggressive nose, in your face dank cannabis , resin and sticky pine. Mouthwatering juicy citrus, nice amount of ripe tropical fruits that break away in time to let in a small amount of carmel malt.

TASTE: Follows the nose perfectly, you get the big juicy citrusy sweetness and then the bitter hop comes rolling over. That earthy dank, resiny flavors really stand out. A lot of flavors going on but balanced very nicely.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and a medium crispy snappy carbonation. Nice bit of oils that helps contains the long bitter finish.

OVERALL: I'll start by saying the name and art work are awesome! This was such a great beer, very drinkable. Flavors where all where they needed to be super bummed it only comes out limited would love to be able to drink this more often.

RATING: 4.5/5 Zombie Heads!

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.

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.

Beautiful, clear, amber body, with a perfectly proportioned two finger thick head, with some giant bubbles. The smell of the beer was citric with touch of herbal notes. The taste was quite a well balanced mix of bitter and sweet, but both flavors were very intense. So it was more of a battle than a melding. The bitterness was a mixture of herbal and grapefruit flavors, and the sweetness was very much like a hard candy with some watermelon. The finish brought out the alcohol, along with some pepper like spice. Very sticky in the mouth, which helped the flavors linger on. This is a very nice Double IPA, with toms of flavor. Highly recommended.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured on draft at the Salud bottle shop in Charlotte

decent head that dissipates quickly, very clear
light pine, SULFUR
medium to light body
well balanced
hoppy, sweet

overall, nothing special, perhaps because of the off flavor. rather have a 420 or IPA from the same.
