The pungent aroma of Sour Kush has a sweetly citrus scent. The odor is quite potent so it is advisable to keep it in tightly sealed containers, and better smoked outdoors. When dried, the heavily frosted buds break up into a crunchy powder, the smoke being delicious and crisp. The taste is a spicy citrus, some even claiming there are hints of garlic, with an expected aftertaste of diesel. The potent effects are long lasting. The dense, pine cone shaped nuggets feature dark green leaves with shades of deep purple, covered generously with cloudy, amber trichomes and strong orange hairs. These crisp, dense nuggets are both enjoyable to break up and to smoke!
