An extremely hoppy ale, that really does smell like weed.

Good IPA. Pours a nice amber color. Aromas are similar to a safety meeting: very dank, resinous, piney. Quick review but good IPA.

Pours a dark orange, hazy. Light head,looks and smells like itd be syrupy. Smells of toast,sweet malt,mead,toasted coconut, alcohol, and some pine, weak nose, maybe some fruit/floral. Hoppy at times.Tastes toasty but kinda syrupy, light caramel, slick lots of up front pine, resin, alcohol hits off and on, sweetish cloying hoppy,hoppy sweet maybe?, finish. Strong bitter and linger. Fairly malty and strong, dry alcohol heat often, strong pine hop flavor. Not a great double ipa, I don’t know why most double ipa’s disappoint me most of the time.

12 oz bottle for 3 bucks. Pours hazy orange-copper with a small white head. Aroma is citrus hops, slightly piney and malty. Taste is piney hops, smooth lasting bitterness at the end. Creamy mouthfeel, somewhat chewy. Overall a very nice double IPA. Doesn’t smell like weed though.

Draft at Dive 96 with Andrew and Jay. Pours a deep amber orange body with thick off white lacing. Mouthfeel is medium to full-bodied with notes of sharp pine resin, bitter syrupy hop, grapefruit & honey, caramel malt and light booze.

bigda83 (368) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Poured a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. Aroma was not very strong. Had some pine, floral, citrus to it. Flavor was malty, caramel, cherry, pine, and floral. Medium body and texture to it. Bitter to finish. Couldn’t find a bottle date anywhere, but this was overly malty to me. Would like to try fresh. Unless this was actually fresh and I just can’t tell, in which case no thanks. Def no dankness to the smell at all.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2015
Medium beige head. Clear deep red body. Resiny tropical fruit and citrus aroma with wooden spicy notes. Sweetish resiny fruity taste with spicy wooden tropical fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel leaving some heat. Dryish spicy minty pineapple aftertaste with alcoholic fruity notes. Nice, drinkable, but a bit hot and a bit much pineapple. (0.355l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)
