Sweet Water Brewery 420 Strain: Insane OG

What the brewers say

“Insane OG Mexican Lager emulates the Insane OG cannabis strain, sweet notes below a dank piney aroma. The Mexican lager base is dry with a sweet caramel note. According to B-Real, it ‘smells like you’re drinking a bag of weed.’”

What our panel thought

“Very botanical, like I’m in a field cutting down ‘weeds.’ Aroma and flavor assault you with dankness. Taste dominated by pleasant vegetable-like bitterness that lingers. Terpenes pull the hops into citrus-piney resin. Slight graininess. Body is extremely light. Just enough weirdness and complexity to keep you coming back for more. Easy to drink. More of an IPL, and I’ll take another.”

What our editors thought

“Weed terpenes dominate—this is no exercise in subtlety. The sharp notes run the gamut from anise to orange peel to rubber and diesel. The sip channels that skunky note into a bitter back note, balanced by slightly sweet but crisp body in the foreground. Starts as a novelty, finishes much more drinkable than one would expect.”
