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

Pours a hazy amber - orange color with a small white head. Aroma is all citrus hops. Taste is piney hops, with a bitterness at the end. Creamy, somewhat chewy. Slight taste of alcohol. Overall a nice double IPA.

Strong cannabis and resiny nose. Pours a gorgeous orange brown and holds a decent sized beige head. Nutty dark malts help to carry the ample hop bill. Spicy medium bitter and very dank finish.

Fratto (2835) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2015
On tap at First Draft. Orange pour with a big off-white head. Aroma is lots of things, but not really weed. Taste is piney, a little citrus, alcohol, and bitter.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent weak orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy. The vinous crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Wonderfully aromatic. Juicy, deep orange, slight brine, grapefruit, pine finish, bitterness that clings, but subtle. This is surprisingly well done, awesome.

APPEARANCE - three shades darker than safety orange in color, light whispy head laces well to leave behind evidence of the safety hazard that was the full glass. NOSE - approached with caution and carefully wafted the beautifully resinous pine scents and light tropical notes to my nose. FLAVOR - the balance of bitter and a backbone of malt is no accident. NOTES - in wish my safety meetings tasted this good, or ended this smoothly. You don’t need a learning team to conclude that this is excellent medicine.

On tap at Appalachian Vintner. Hazy gold. Smelled of citrus, pine, slight weed smell. Taste of citrus, pine, grass, fruity nice malt backbone.

Poured from a bottle dated 4/4/15 Nice smelling aroma - tropical notes a present. A bit cloudy, but a nice pour and decent lacing. Nice hop bitterness, and dry aftertaste.

Murky orange brown color out of the bottle with a creamy off white head. Sweet nose of citrus candy with some pine notes. Lots of thick, chewy caramel sweetness with rough, tongue burning pine and grapefruit zest hops. No subtlety here. Sort of a mess.
