3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Milltown. Pours a reddish bet with a small off white head and some sticky lace. Nose is citrus, resiny hops, lots of candi sugar malt. Flavor is similar--more sweet than the Sucks, lots of resinous hops, caramelized sugar, light papaya, and guava. Certainly a fine double ipa, but I probably prefer the Sucks for its drier qualities. Solid, but not worth custy’s hype and a bit on the sweet and boozy side for my tastes.

Growler poured into snifter. Amber beautiful. Little bit of head lingers at edge of glass. Great lacing leaving perfect rings on glass. Aroma of earthy, piney, weedy goodness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Lagunitas beer sanctuary in Petaluma. All you’d expect from the master brewers at Lagunitas and more. I’m not a huge fan of IPA’s or DIPA’s but I’m glad that I tried this ’special brew’ as part of my 4/20 celebration week. Hat’s off to the brewmaster and the Waldos at San Raphael High who inspired all things related to 4/20.
The beer was strong, flowery, euphoric, inspired - a fine representative of the best homegrown products of Sonoma County.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Oh my goodness! Menu says 9.2% (website says 10.5%) and tapped today at 6pm - on tap from Tap25 in Livermore. Pours deep orange, a little cloudy, nice white head that eventually disappears. Smells of pine, overpowering sweet citrus and tastes of earthy, orange/grapefruit, even hops/mary jane (wait...420 is in the title?). Malt is there but hops really stand out. Big, bold, dank, resinous, and sweet...is this the best Lagunitas beer since Sucks? Yep. Great DIPA.

On 4/20 at Harry’s Hofbrau for $4.20 per pint. Massive, massive, massive citrus, dank funk and earth aroma. Beautiful. Pours a slightly haze orange with a full white head. Flavor is pronounced citrus and earth, with lots of fresh cut grass. Strong bitterness, but not overpoweringly so like with many DIPAs. Excellent, dude.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong pine medicinal aroma is pleasant as much as it is unique. Orange brew is clear with a thin wispy head. Flavor has a more distinct citrus flavor. Good body and carbonation. Finish is bitter with great complexity. Excellent use of hops.
