12oz bottle, shaker pint, best by the end of February 2011.

Straight copper with a big rocky head that's really nearly white, but not quite. It looks like an IPA.

Man, straight dank. I have experienced hints of marijuana in hoppy beers before, but never like this. This is weed with a hint of lemon.

This hoppy, puckering lemon citrus with some surprising alcohol apparent making for citron vodka impressions. Still like lemon zest and weed. Oh yeah, there is a caramel body.

The body is sparkling and medium. Meh.

Since I'm not a weed smoker and the weed aromas and flavors are so big that this obviously well crafted IPA isn't my thing. I can tell it's quality and fresh, which I appreciate.
