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.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2015
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, listed at 11.1% ABV
Hazy amber color with Cooper hue, compact head. The hops are fruity bit also a bit candyish, not too aromatic; the body is lean but the beer is somehow chewy; moderate sweetness; loads of piney hops; in the final apparently the malt sticks more than the hop. Nice alcohol warmth, and tickling hop resins.
Good malty beer. Old style IIPA.

brokensail (15214) - San Leandro, California, USA - APR 20, 2013
Hazed amber/copper pour with a white head. Sweet caramel, sugar, pineapple, and peach aromas. Grapefruit, pine, flowers, and some brown sugar. Maybe a bit of alcohol. The flavor is a touch boozy, but excellent fruit and hop character. Brown sugar, caramel, pineapple, peach, and nice grapefruit. Mild bitterness, pine, and floral hops.

Good to be #10. Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe at 4:20 PM. Board note: "The dankest, hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas. My rate: Pours translucent orange gold with a foamy white head. Huge citrus/floral aroma. Very near full bodied. It’s almost sludgy with hop. Fruit hop. Citrus hop. Maybe some resin. There’s a little sweetness, and I think I detect caramel under all the hop. Bitter like resin, but not the NW version of harshness. Earthy, swampy, fruity, bitter. Extremely hoppy. Very tasty.

Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus and resin hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer and exceeded my expectations.

mcberko (11955) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a mostly clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of piney and resinous hops, balanced by doughy malt - nice and bitter on the nose. Flavour of piney and resinous hops as well, well-hopped as most Lagunitas IPAs are, balanced by just enough doughy malt. Excellently made with a very highly-hopped body, without being shittily stringent. Delicious.
