Looks and smells better than it tasted in my opinion. Very strong bitter intense but beautiful color and smell.

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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh)
Golden and cloudy - very nice looking beer. Fruity aroma and hoppy/fruity taste. Very pleasant. I'm not a "hoppy or due" person, otherwise this would get a 4.3+

Draft. Hazy copper. White small head. Some lacing. Considering the amount of alcohol its malt is well hidden behind the hops. Glad I got to try it. It's tasty
