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.

2017-04-18, bottle courtesy of Sergey, 11.9%, 8-4-8-5-17=42
Dank aroma, powerful hops. Full bodied, strong pale malt flavor, moderately sweet, followed by dank hops and sweet orange peel, pungent final.
A bit sweet, but one kind of IIPA I love.

2015-07-02, draught at St. Augustine's, Vancouver, listed at 11.1% ABV, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Hazy amber color with Cooper hue, compact head. The hops are fruity bit also a bit candyish, not too aromatic; the body is lean but the beer is somehow chewy; moderate sweetness; loads of piney hops; in the final apparently the malt sticks more than the hop. Nice alcohol warmth, and tickling hop resins.
Good malty beer. Old style IIPA.

mcberko (19880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a mostly clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of piney and resinous hops, balanced by doughy malt - nice and bitter on the nose. Flavour of piney and resinous hops as well, well-hopped as most Lagunitas IPAs are, balanced by just enough doughy malt. Excellently made with a very highly-hopped body, without being shittily stringent. Delicious.

Oakes (19434) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
Golden with a slight haze. This has a nice head. The nose is nice, really danky mosaicy, with a touch of that litterbox. This has a fair bit of malt on the nose as well. Rich bitterness, lots of kiwi, passionfruit, papaya, pear...so much fruity hop. Balanced. Very drinkable. So much hop in this.

3.9
brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 20, 2013
Hazed amber/copper pour with a white head. Sweet caramel, sugar, pineapple, and peach aromas. Grapefruit, pine, flowers, and some brown sugar. Maybe a bit of alcohol. The flavor is a touch boozy, but excellent fruit and hop character. Brown sugar, caramel, pineapple, peach, and nice grapefruit. Mild bitterness, pine, and floral hops.

4.2
djd07 (16317) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2015
On tap at Cottonwood. Pours a clear gold with off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong dank and pine. Sticky, dank, citrus, resin finish, lingering bitterness, really nice.

3.6
Scopey (16277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2016
Bottle big thanks to Bruce. It pours clear golden - amber with a decent white head. The aroma is juicy, sticky, orange marmalade, candied peel, sticky dank, caramelized sugars, orange sponge cake, muffin and passion fruit. The taste is bitter, rich, oily, rich orange, Cointreau, pine needles, hop spice, light dankness, touch of toffee and grapefruit with a dry, boozy finish. Medium - full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth - feel. Even though it’s big & boozy it drinks pretty easy. Decent enough.

bhensonb (15991) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 20, 2012
Good to be #10. Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe at 4:20 PM. Board note: "The dankest, hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas. My rate: Pours translucent orange gold with a foamy white head. Huge citrus/floral aroma. Very near full bodied. It’s almost sludgy with hop. Fruit hop. Citrus hop. Maybe some resin. There’s a little sweetness, and I think I detect caramel under all the hop. Bitter like resin, but not the NW version of harshness. Earthy, swampy, fruity, bitter. Extremely hoppy. Very tasty.
