Sweetwater brewing 420 strains
« on: January 17, 2020, 07:41:35 am »
Does anyone on here have any idea how Sweetwater gets their 420 strain beers to smell like weed? I tried to do a clone batch and used a terpene i found on the interwebs but i dont feel like it held the smell like their beer does. Any suggestions are welcome. If anyone wants the reciepe i'd be happy to post it.

CTZ? CTZ can be pretty dank. Just a guess.

It says this on the side of the G13 IPA can, "We took an already dank IPA and married its hops with strain specific terpenes and natural hemp-type flavor.  The result is an aromatic super-hybrid sticky IPA that's ready to rip."  It also says, "contains no hemp."
But I have no idea how or why.
