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.

Bottle. Pours an unclear orange gold with a soapy white head that fades to a thin collar. Aroma has resinous pine mango along with sweet sugars some malt and alcohol. Taste is very bitter resinous with pine spruce and a little tropical mango, very sweet sugary malt and alcohol showing. Palate is sticky full coating and warming.

Sampled from the tap at Happy Gnome. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has dank pine and sweet onion backed by caramel and sweet grains. Flavor has a strong resinous pine supported by onion, strong sweet grains and hint of caramel.

hopscotch (11014) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2017
Draft... Pours clear and golden with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. The aroma is both fruity citrus and resiny notes of pine. Full-bodied and chewy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is big, bold and bittersweet (more bitter than sweet). Pine, grapefruit pith and spicy hops are the stars of the show despite a huge, manly malt backbone. Finishes piney, resiny, bitter and boozy.

CObiased (489) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2017
12oz bottle - this gem pours a clear copper/gold color with a very thin off white head. Really enjoyed the tropical hop aroma, hint of citrus and a whiff of alcohol. Layered flavors of tropical fruit, citrus pith, a hint of floral, cracker like malt and a hint of booze. Very delicious

From notes. Enjoyed on draft at Public House with Jeff on the heels of the Public House event. Thanks man! The pour is a darker golden orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes, leaving a nice soapy lace behind. The aroma is full of bitter hops right up front. There is a lightly sweet maltiness creeping in, but then that is offset quickly by a lovely fruitiness. The citrus and bitter zest on this are lovely. The flavor is much of the same. Big hops and fruity bitterness up front with a light maltiness in the middle before the grapefruit and orange come flying back in on the finish. The mouth feel is a little light with a great bright carbonation and a lingeringly bitter citrus zest on the back end. This is a pretty damn good beer, especially for a triple IPA.

drowland (8490) - Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2017
4/27/17. 12oz bottle from Publix. Light hazed orange pour under a nice khaki head, mild lacing. Nice aroma, dank, fruity, maybe a booze kick. Lightly sweet caramel and sugar flavor, not too bitter, dank hops, a hint of booze. I did not realize I was buying a 12% beer. Oh well!

Draft. Pours hazy blonde. The palate is thick. The grapefruit and orange and orange zest. Nice earthy bitter. Awesome beer

scotchzombie (580) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2017
Pours clear and golden with a fast-fading white head. Dormant appearance. Aroma is da dank - resinous hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is, well, huge. Sweet caramel malts upfront into hop resin and then a switch is flipped and you've got a lemon-to-grapefruit bitterness explosion. Moderately boozy and despite the hopped finish, sweet and sticky overall. A bit uneven but a memorable brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Too sweet. Too friggin’ sweet. I complained earlier about Session IPAs being too malt-free to develop complexity, but holy hell am I growing a new respect for their restraint. Waldo may be hopped all to hell and back, but the malt-forward cloying corn-laced booze sweetness overpowers everything with this beer. Ever wonder what a pale barleywine might taste like? Here’s your answer, and it’s not good. Big grapefruit-lemon hops slathered on toast covered in Karo syrup. Boozy, burny finish. 11.9% shouldn’t be too big, but I can’t drink this thing. Aaargh.

12 oz single bottle shared. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Aroma of dank/resinous hops, toasted malt, light herbal/floral notes and a hint of garlic. Similar flavor, adding moderate bitterness and a mild malt sweetness. Medium to full body with a smooth feel and a balanced finish. Pretty clean and easy to drink for ~12%.
