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

Great golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is of course hoppy with small hints of creaminess. The taste follows, really bitter. The palate is great, not too bubbly, not too flat. Overall a great double IPA.

Ktwse (1989) - SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2014
Pours murky brownish amber with medium off-white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, apricot, light toffee and caramel. Taste is initial fruit sweet followed by a balanced, pleasant resin bitter. Body is medium, smooth and slightly oily with soft to average carbonation.

Digzis (74) - Nancy, FRANCE - SEP 11, 2014
Jolie IPA de couleur ambrée, avec une bulle très fine et assez rare. Une attaque assez houblonnée en bouche et un nez important de fruits exotiques assez frais : ananas, pamplemousse, mais qui s’estompe assez vite. Une amertume légèrement herbacée qui reste plus longtemps en bouche. Pas mal.

backdaft (219) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2014
On tap. Pours a darker amber color. Good 2 finger off-white head with some nice retention. Aroma is some earthy, floral, and herbacious hops. Taste is a bit sweet with caramel malt, citrus fruit, and a bunch of dank hops. Dry and moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied, with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Did NOT smell like weed.

Fin (7408) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Had this in bottle at Bracelands Campsite, nr Coleford, Fcorest of Dean, Glos, Saturday 6th September 2014 Dark amber pour a touch hazy with a sticky white head. Thick in the mouth, a little syrupy but wonderfully hoppy. Wonderfully hoppy, bittersweet, its very, very good. Hoppy fumes off the mouth, its almost like those who smoke lots of weed and smell of it, I feel like this when I drink this. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15. 3.8

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle:   Great looking beer!   Soft floral nose, very soft fruitiness on the tongue.   Somewhat of a mild IIPA.   Soft bitterness, smooth, but not coming across as all that big.   Seems a very floral IPA, not a lot of hop bite.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Still smooth tho, very smooth.   It also has a slight chamomile like background.   Its floral and a bit herbal at times.   Wished it were more citrusy.   Good IIPA, smooth, looks fantastic in the glass, but wished it more brutish and citrusy/hoppy.   Thanks Kevin!

Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor ciemnego bursztynu ale jest przejrzyste z odcieniami czerwieni i brązu. Piana jest średniej wielkości o kolorze kremowym. Fantastyczny lacing. NOS : piwo ma mocne nuty palonego karmelu i tarty. Do tego czuć alkohol, mnóstwo żywicy, jałowca, skórkę pompelo i mango. Jest tez dosyć mocny ziołowy aromat. Aromat piwa zapowiada mało subtelne piwo... USTA : średnio nasycone o gęstej konsystencji podobnej do tłustego mleka. Piwo jest mocne pod każdym względem. Mocno słodkie, aż klejące o mocno żywicznej kontrze i sporym alkohol, który rozgrzewa już przy pierwszym łyku. Piwo nie jest super gorzkie ale w dużej mierze zawdzięcza alkoholowi co jest, według mnie, sporym minusem. Jest to piwo na pewno mocno chmielone na zimno bo piecze w ustach. Po kilku łykach przypomina lekarstwo. Posmak gorzki i trwały. ODCZUCIA : nie jestem za tym by krafty były subtelne ale jak przesada idzie w podkreślony mocno alkohol i mało ciekawą gorycz to mi nie odpowiada. Może z mocno pikantnym hamburgerem dało by rade. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 4/10 styl : 0
