Indica-dominant Miracle Alien Cookies (or MAC1) flower from Mammoth Inc. reaches a new dimension when paired with the sweet and smooth Frame Lines India Pale Ale from Vitamin Sea Brewery. And, who knew hops and hemp were so copacetic? In fact, both plants belong to the Cannabaceae family – similar in appearance and smell with sticky resin glands, leaves and flowers that humans have cultivated and enjoyed for centuries.
MAC1 flower is limonene-forward with a sharp scent and a hazy high. A few sips of Frame Lines IPA following a smoke sesh brings out the fruitiness of the flower in a way that is enjoyable and unique. Frame Lines uses Vic Secret hops from Australia that have strong notes of pineapple and an earthy herbaceous smell, with this pairing really bringing out flavor notes of orange and citrus. Together, things get a little more chill, a little hazier, and a little sweeter. Finishing with stone fruit and woody aromatics – you can really feel the synergy of these two standout products.
