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.

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

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%.

Very strong. The high alcohol offsets the citrus balance. Definitely some major dankiness. Good lacing with a small amount of head. Would not drink more than one at a time.

Draft at growler guys. Bright gold color with a thin white head. The aroma is huge... full of tropical fruits and dank hoppiness. Sweet hop nectar taste, more dank hops, and modest bitters. Very potent flavor. 3 days late, but worth the wait.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2017 Well it is a big beer. Alcohol and hops shocked full. Very bitter and clean but I gave it a big score because it is a very pretty beer. Crystal clear, sparkling, golden with even some lacing. I ordered it again.

Delicious beer. Great balance and very long flavours of citrus, pine, and notes of caramel.
