UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Tap: Also known as "Smells Like Weed IPA". Almost fully opaque copper body, no head, only a beige collar, probably from the pour. Aroma of pines, some dank resins... Sticky icky. Iíve actually had many other beers that smelled more like weed than this. But itís got some moderate dank. Caramel malt abound, too. Taste is pine, grapefruit peel, slight hemp oil, touch of peppery florals, some back end toffee malt sweetness. Moderately bitter, medium body with low carbonation. Sticky a little, resinous.

Idiosynkrasie (4446) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2015
355ml bottle [8.5% abv as per label]. Minimally cloudy, orangey amber colour with average, thick, fluffy, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Sweaty, resinous, hoppy aroma, some weed indeed, tobacco, sirupy tropical fruity notes almost condensed to liquorice, candied orange zest. Taste is resinous hoppy, grass, hay, marihuana, tobacco, condensed fruitiness, apricot and peach jam, orange zest. Nice and slightly dirty mixture of grassy and fruity hop notes; decent & discreet malty backbone supports the sound exposition of hop flavours.

Copper pour with a tan head. Aroma is hoppy, a little spiciness to them. Taste is a solid malt base with tasty hops. A wonderful drinking experience. Ok lacing.

Madsen1635 (363) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. Hazy copper pour with tan head. Aroma is really strong with herbs and some sweet malt. Full taste with lots of power. Fades quite fast and leaves you with a taste of liquorice in the mouth. A powerful beer

Strykzone (5261) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On draft at the Pump House. Almost clear golden with a nice layer. Nice floral and pine flavors and aroma. This is well hopped but with some nice caramel beneath. A little caramel and yeast. Pine leads the hop profile. I didnít get anything like weed but it was fairly tasty.

drowland (6569) - Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2015
10/4/14. Sampled at Billís Oktoberfest party, I believe. Orange pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. I donít know if this was a little old or if itís overrated, but I found it mediocre. Earthy, floral aroma, sweet honey, malty, dishrag and minerals. Bitter flavor, chalky, minerals, earthy, floral, honey, malty, caramel. Meh.
