Goose Island Goose IPA
Pair it with this strain: Tangerine X Flo
"The high amounts of linalool and limonene you taste on the inhalation of Tangerine X Flo harmonizes perfectly with the the lemon zest you taste as this IPA hits your tongue. The skunky apricot aftertaste from this Goose IPA transforms your mouth just like the earthy transformation your taste buds feel on the exhalation of the Tang X Flo."
Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA
Pair it with this strain: Blueberry Haze
"The 60 Minute IPA reminded me of eating clementines at a bluegrass festival, and was the sweetest, smoothest, and lightest out of all of the beers I tried for this story. Sweetness, smoothness, and lightness is exactly what pops in my head whenever I smoke Blueberry Haze."
Stone Brewing Stone IPA
Pair it with this strain: Bio-Diesel
"Out of all the pairings, this was the hardest. The dry, bitter, pine taste of the Stone was a little confusing for my mouth to pick up on, just like the musky, citrus, diesel taste of Bio-Diesel. Think about Ethiopian coffee the morning after a night of celebrating too hard."
Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA
Pair it with this strain: White Widow
"White Widow is one of the heaviest-hitting indicas on the planet with its high levels of caryophyllene and myrcene. The smokey and earthy tastes you get from those terpenes will go perfectly with Torpedo, which reminds me of those dark organic chocolate bars I love so much -- 80% cacao anyone?"
