Tap at brewpub.
Hahahahaha I get it it’s a reference to marijuana hahahahahaha how original hahahahahahhahaha!
Pours a semi-thick amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma is sweet strawberry and bitter grapfefruit. Flavor is a creamy, biting grapefruit and sour orange peel. Coats the tongue nicely. Cut the cliche pot references; junior high is (hopefully) in the past.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Boulder. Pours a cloudy, amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruits and a mixture of pines, florals, and earth. A light caramel balance as well as a touch of oily resin. Flavor is similar, but not quite as loaded as the aroma. Some sweet caramels and piney, sweeter citrus before a moderately bitter, somewhat piney, floral, and earthy finish that lingers for a lengthy duration. Medium body, oily, and smooth with a semi-crispness. Overall, a solid IPA. I like the aroma a bit more than the flavor, but it was still enjoyable nonetheless.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at MS during GABF week 09. Pours a deep amber mostly clear with a nice fluffy head. Aroma is dank, weed- like with good mango tropical fruitiness amarillo and simco. Moderate toasty and caramel sweet malts, tons of oily resinous and dank hops, more mango and tropical- very fruity from the hops and not esters, some orange zest and citrus as it warms even more- clean bitter finish. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Vine Street - dark amber pour - as has been noted, very resinous in the aroma, with hints of sweetened grapefruit - fairly sweet flavor, but there is plenty of earthy hops to lend balancing bitterness, pine, and citrus pith flavors - a bit of orange sweetness in the finish that the bitterness doesn’t quite stick around long enough to balance completely, but otherwise this is a fairly tasty IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Mountain Sun (and take-home quart following). Piney, resinous nose with hints of fresh mandarin orange. Flavor is more of the same with a definite edge to the resiny pine hops, but well-balanced sweetness throughout the glass and the carbonation and sweetness takes the oily edge off the woodiness. As Fresh as this is, it’s really outstanding. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at Mountain Sun - Pours hazy copper with a good citrus hops aroma. The flavor is aggressively hopped, more so than the Swang Song and Illusion Dweller I had the same night, with notes of pine and citrus. It’s medium bodied and has a long bitter finish.

Draught from brewpub. Light cloudy amber with a nice frothy white head that eventually thins. Beautiful aroma of sweet and floral hops with notes of grapefruit. A medium bodied brew with aggressive hop flavor ending in dry and light bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the original brewpub on 7/17/09. Pours a nice orange with bubbly head and solid lacing. Very pleasant lavendar, grapefruit and orange hops. A nice balanced sweetness with the bitter, but overall a bit too fizzy for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the brewery/pub. What a wonderful beer and wonderful place to drink and eat. This IPA is darker than most as it pours a clear dark amber. The aroma is a burst of fresh citrus hops and the flavor is a nice body of malt encased in very fresh, fruity, citrusy hops from begininning to end. Pretty well balanced and just a great beer.
