A hoppy full bodied beer, made with generous amounts of Columbus, Willamette and Centennial hops. The name of the beer, references a particular type of marijuana. With a 6.5% ABV, it’s a little strong for a session beer, but it’s still drinkable enough to enjoy more than one.
A cartoonesque image of Lord Ganesh is on the bottle. Ganesh or Ganapati (translated as the King of sets) is the elephant headed son of Lord Shiva and is widely worshipped by the Hindus. Owing to stringent protests, the company has removed the image of Lord Ganesha from the beer bottle and its website and extended apology, in July of 2009.
Hazy orange-copper color with a thick, cloud-puff of head. The hops take the lead in the aroma with a light, crisp, citrus, grapefruit and tiny hints of herbs and sweetened pine.
A milder IPA, it's got a great malt backbone with a nice assertive hop bitterness. Overall, a well balanced beer. Smooth medium light body. It's not exceptional but pretty darn good.
Indica is strong enough to hold up to very spicy foods, like curries or Thai food, or with strong cheeses like bleu, pepper jack or gorgonzola.
