Orange beer, 1/3" white/off white head on the top. Where this beer (like so many hoppy offerings from 5050) starts to get inconsistent (or entirely) is with the hopping. Sometimes this dry hop is a blast, refreshing, green, dank. Other times, its just largely minimized. When its poppin' though, its on.

Taste can provide a bitter and hoppy experience, or a malty wood driven experience. Really just depends. Sometimes Truckee goes through a slow season somewhere in between the snow and summer seasons (late spring, fall) where maybe the beer doesn't sell as quick.

Check it out and cross your fingers, some caramel, but one of the better ipas in between the bay area and Reno.

Smells like weed. Tastes like it too! However it was overwhelming in the taste. Tasted like I was chewing on some chron. Overall I thought it was an Interesting IPA

Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is pine and grapefruit.
The taste is moderate pine bitterness with a biting bitter finish.
The texture is medium.
It's nice.
