Unscrew the lid … and release a genie made from candy and tropical fruit.
Pineapple MAC has that look reminiscent of slightly wet pastry dough, with a color that’s as golden as any nug-only release. You can tell from the glistening sheen that it’s full of terpy goodness. But with so much candied pineapple bursting out of the aroma, it’s surprising to find an added depth to the flavor that’s able to break through – making this almost too fun to smoke.
To make their new fresh frozen, whole plant rosins, 7 Points partnered with Cali-Xotics and Cryo Lab in Los Angeles to press material grown in their Woodlake facility. Currently, they’ve released two from their flavor stable – but this Pineapple MAC is perhaps the most interesting in terms of taste.
Taking a big dab, you get a first wave of sweet canned pineapple … but there’s also something in there that’s earthy and maybe even a little musty (in a good way). The flavor pulls at your salivary glands and mulls that sweetness into something that plays at the fringes of flavor without fully committing to either side of the spectrum. Even the exhale has moments where my brain tells me the flavor borders on something more like a Gelato.
Reading 7 Points’ own description for this offering, you can see how they’ve chosen to make that added element part of the flavor profile – even going so far as to mention that it might smell like a pineapple upside-down cake, but it hits like Gelato 41 and MAC.
From my perspective, I found this less of a sleepy vibe and more of an afternoon lounge kind of smoke. The powerful, even-keeled high you usually get from MAC is a little slowed down, but if you’re used to smoking your fair share of dabs you’ll most likely experience a nice, laid-back high that won’t knock you out – but also won’t have you walking any farther than from the couch to the refrigerator.
