How to spot it
Because several different seed companies have released versions of this strain over the years, you will see some variation in examples of SSH. However, the distinctive aroma is probably the biggest indicator, as well as the light, almost neon-green color normally contrasted with prominent jack-o'-lantern orange stigmas (hairs).
Sweet pine, menthol, and citrus candy are all appropriate descriptors for the complex, tangy cocktail of aromas present in a well-grown Super Silver Haze. There's a reason this variety has won a ton of Cannabis Cups and been a fixture on the cannabis scene for the better part of 25 years: the smell and flavor are deep and lasting. Even the air smells better after you smoke a Haze joint.
