3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted this fresh a couple months ago… It pours a dark orange with a creamy orange head. The aroma is very sweet with fruity mango, orange and grape. The flavor is the same… super fruity with grapes, mango, a little spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Strong… Full bodied and a bit on the sweet and thick side, but great flavor.

Draft at South Philly Taproom with Alan. Ugly hazy red pour no head or lace. Straight sugar, barleywine, past prime hops, sticky fruit, cherry. Gross shit taste lilke its all of the 6 weeks old. I was excited for this but what a huge letdown. I drank 2 ounces and returned the rest to the bar keep.

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.
