Sticky hands is an independent artisan beer brewed with fresh hops in Corvallis, OR. Usually, when I enjoy this resinous and citrusy Imperial IPA, it has been canned just a few days prior. With a 110 IBU and 8.1% ABV, Block 15 has nailed down a secret hop regime that uses a custom designed hop extract and dry hopping techniques, resulting in a beer that can only be described as dank.

Sticky hands is a phenomenal choice if you’re a lupulin lover. Lupulin A.K.A hop hash is the active ingredient of  H. lupulus (Hops) and also what gives this beer it’s hazy appearance. Hops also contain terpenes such as myrcene, humulene, and linalool. If you didn’t already know, cannabis and hops are very closely related.

We HAD to pair this beer with Golden Goat. This cultivar is super resinous and also rich in humulene and myrcene, as well as limonene— giving it a fruity yet dank terpene profile— that compliments the IIPA perfectly.

Golden Goat is a cross between Romulan-Hawaiian and Sweet Island Skunk from Topeka, KA. Rumor has it that the strain got its name because the smell was similar to a Golden Goat recycling receptacle. (Think of an empty beer can on a hot day) If you like your beer and weed to pack a tropical piney punch, pairing these two together will be a real palate pleaser.

Sticky Hands ”Canned fresh – Best before yesterday”  recommended to be served cold and fresh in a 14 oz snifter-style glass. Keep an eye out for Sticky Hands variations including; Tropical Slam, Marmalade, Brewer’s Cut, and Southern Exposure.

Big thanks to Block 15 Brewing for making such great beer, Growl Movement of Salem, OR for always have a fridge full of recently canned Sticky Hands, and Rasta Jeff of Irie seeds for selling quality genetics.
