COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 1971, the Waldos met one afteroon at 4:20 in the front courtyard of their school near the statue of Louis Pasteur. They set out in a ’66 Impala armed with a "treasure map" on a journey to find a secret garden near Point Reyes. They met there at the same time every day and continued their quest. They never found the secret garden....But they keep lookin’. The dankest and hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas was made with help of the Waldos for all treasure hunters.

Tap. The look is clear, thin beige head, bronze in color. The smell is fruit roll ups, super mango, almost tart but not really, good stuff. The taste is richer, darker, thicker, alcohol, and pine.

On tap at the Stoneyard with Patty after golf. Color is a cloudy orange amber with one-finger white head. Aroma is hop, spice, melon, malt, grass and soap. Taste is....well it isn’t strong. It is dank with resin, hoppy but not bitter, sweet but not cloying. Raw malt and earth only helps the balance. Very tasty.

12oz bottle much thanks to the king of deck supplies! Thanks Dean! Pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of frothy white head. Aroma of dank citrus, resinous pine, grapefruit skins, caramel malt, green onions, and some booziness. Taste mimics the nose with additional notes of zest and grass.

Sample at WOBFest 2016. I much prefer the other Imperial IPAs that Lagunitas produces. This one is pretty good, though.

jercraigs (9840) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
2016-04-29. Crisp dark yellow body, modest white head. 3+ Aroma is a melange of fruit and green leafy hops. Flavour is fairly bitter up front, leafy green hops, light resin, citrus rind. Moderate alcohol is mitigated on the palate by the bitterness. Average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 3+ Love the highlights but the overall impression is a little intense for me. 7/3-4/7/3/14-15 Bottle shared by Blankboy.

Butters (4045) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Sampled at Pour in Greenville. Bright clear golden pour with good white head ring. Deliciously stinky piney skunky nose. Flavor has a bitter woody aftertaste which compliments the sweet pineapple hop notes really nicely done. And hides the Abv amazingly well.
