Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Pours a nice hazy copper orange red color.
Big creamy yet soapy almost one head fades slowly with nice lacing.

S - Aromas of sweet caramel malts and some faint alcohol Theres some light sweet citrus (orange) hop notes towards the end.

T - Taste is WAY too sweet for my liking with a ton of caramel malts and some warming booze. More of those light citrus orange notes with a slight bitter finish.

M - Eh, decent carbonation with more of the alcohol presence.

O - Overall meh. Way too sweet and malty, very little hop character. I appreciate JLindros sharing this though.

Thanks to JonnyGalt (Reddit) for providing this one.

Big creamy 1.5finger head fades slowly with nice lacing, hazy copper orange red color.

Nose sweet reddish malts, toasty with caramel and light toffee, juicy malt with hint of booze, light candy orange hops and light earthy and fruity.

Taste sweet! Creamy caramel malts, light toffee, toasty reddish malts, some warming booze. Earthy candied orange hops, mild bitterness. Finish is drier but still sweet and malty, long earthy bitterness and light candied orange and hint chewy hops. The only real hop character is the spicy hop bitterness that lingers for quite a while after the finish.

Mouth is a bit fuller bodied, decent carb, some warming booze.

Overall meh. Way too sweet and malty, very little hop character. It's even hard to drink more than 1/2 a glass, so I'm glad I shared this with a few friends.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

LOOK: Hazed orange amber, stellar amount of stickage of head

SMELL: Orange zest, floral, green peppercorn, blood oranges, mango, pineapple, shortbread

TASTE: Smooth, creamy, orange rind, peppery, bitter, exotic fruit, leafy, estery, herbal, warming, toasted crackers, yeast, oily citrus, hoppy semi-dry finish

I get the premise, super hoppy and dank ... reference to 420 is laughable. Yeah, the hop plant has a cousin but there is a big difference from the hop to its cousin. As for the beer, it is without a doubt a massive IPA (pretty much a DIPA). The hops don't hold back and is somewhat drinkable being it does not hold on to much balance. Hopheads should give this a try.
