Though this clone-only strain certainly has a golden-pink hue thanks to the long, wispy pistils that wrap around the otherwise lime-green bud, its name comes from something much more obscure: an aluminum-can recycling bin. Kansas grower and Golden Goat breeder Mr. Dank says the smell of the buds in flower is identical to the rotten sweetness produced by a Golden Goat recycling bin left out to bake in the hot Kansas summer sun. We'll take his word for it, though we think the pungent mix of the skunky sweetness of Island Sweet Skunk along with the baby-powder/pine-sap candy odor of Romulan is one of the most unique, complex odors in the cannabis world. The flavor is more of the same, with a spicy, spiked fruit-punch sweetness over a SweeTart-tangy haze. Speedy and racy, this strain is the one you give those old-school tokers who complain about today's lackluster strains; watch the Goat quickly become their go-to favorite.
