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.

DougHnut70 (72) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 25, 2013
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.

rubyroo (5) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2016 does not count
Aroma - Peach, mango, guava, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, sweet onion. Appearance - Bright orange with a slight haze. Small ring of bubbles encircle the glass. Taste - citrus fruit pith, dank skunky hops, resin, tropical fruit, booze. Palate - Syrupy, oily, sticky. Sweetness gives way to booze and bitterness. Coats the mouth nicely. Overall - Amazing IIPA. Highly drinkable especially for an 11.5% behemoth. Will be looking for this limited release next 4/20.

tompete (300) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2016

matty (353) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold/dark gold color with a thin, brief white head. Aroma is sweet malt along with a ton of pine and citrus hops - liquid salad. Medium-heavy body, the taste is heavy on citrus with a touch of sweet malt in the background. Finish is surprisingly not as dry as I would think but a little bitter. Good beer, not one I could drink more than one of at a time.

CloakedDagger (1872) - - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours an almost clear golden with a white head. Intense, biting herbal aroma hops, cat peeish. Very rich and sweet body, very fruity but also rather syrupy. Hops are again very herbal but not bitter to any extreme degree. Piney as well. Interesting but in the long run too sweet for me. 060716

phaleslu (9310) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2016
12 oz. bottle, purchased locally and I already can’t remember where. Pours a barely cloudy gold with a finger of white head that settles into an uneven ring, leaving a few ropes of lace inside the glass. From the first whiff and sip, this one doesn’t pull any punches. It’s boozy and resiny, with notes of herbs and oils, citrus peel, honey-like sweet malts, and pine and florals. Nothing really pops out, though, as the malts and body are big enough to match the booze and hops here, pushing it near 120 Minute IPA-style territory. I like it overall, but I’m not sure this is one I’d enthusiastically revisit. Gotta be in the right mood for this one.

shrubber85 (10587) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle. Pineapple, orange, caramel malt, and grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Very sweet orange, pineapple, caramel malt and strong bitter pine grapefruit peel. Good body. Not a fan of the intense sweetness coupled with the hops.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle from Mike. Pours golden, rimming white head. Nose of litterbox, dirt and rubbing alcohol. Much smoother than expected. Nice butterscotch notes, with moderate bitter and lots of lemon and citrus. Damn good.
