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.

Pours golden copper with lasting lacing. Initial aroma is flowery and sweet. Taste is cedar, pine with a very dry finish.

thegreenrooster (4284) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 22, 2017
Pour is a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is a real nice mix of pine and mango/peach hops. Flavor is again a nice citrus fruit hop with a huge bitterness. Finish is super hop resin with a bit of sweetness and almost no noticable alcohol. A really nice double IPA with loads of hop flavor without a huge sweet malt getting in the way of the hops. The only thing that would make this better is if this were more 8% rather than 11% even though the alcohol is not a problem as it is.

On tap at Cosmos. Wow that is a hoot beer. But so balanced and smooth. Slightly hazy.

dwyerpg (5946) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2017
This is just too strong. The high alcohol means almost no head. The flavor is very sweet and strong throughout. It will get you messed up, but it isn’t particularly enjoyable.

Cybercat (5562) - Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2017
Aroma delivers a strong note of zesty, resiny hops with funky and malty hints. It pours out of the bottle clear topaz with a nice but effervescent eggshell head. Flavor presents resiny hops as the lead note and funky, citrus, fresh malt, and bitter evergreen as backup performers. Mouthfeel features good body, if not a lot of fizz. Get weird, get Waldo, get hunting!

Draft find surprise find at beer run in cville, va..medium gold amber color with nice size 1 finger head, nose is screaming dankness, fresh cut grass, some citrus, but that familiar lagunitas nose n taste, taste follows suit with some hop bitterness, hint of some alcohol legs at the finish, but quite smooth for 11 abv, getting some wintergreen n menthol as well but not overwhelming, glad to find this on tap, quite enjoyable all around

Chalumeaux (1426) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2017
Poured from bottle golden orange with a thin white head. Aromas of candied sugar resinous pine floral notes and citrus. Taste is stone and tropical fruit nice lingering bitterness abv is here. Not awful but it’s not The Streets.

AirForceHops (6954) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2017
12 oz. bottle shared by Chalumeaux! Bright clear golden pour with lasting lace and head. Mild danky piney, citrus and malt.

Flavor has sweet mango, tropical fruit, and a big malt profile. Sticky sweet with a lightly sticky mouthfeel. ABV is NOT hidden. Anyone who says so needs to sample this again. Overall, not bad but sweet, boozy, and syrupy. Not sure what people are finding awesome about this. Borderline a mess.

12oz bottle shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks, TJ. 11.5% IPA? Crazy shit! Probably won’t like this much. Pours copper gold with an off white head. Aroma is mango, melon. Flavor is boozy, caramel, mango. Kind of a mess. Very few IPAs over 8.5% are any good.
