Enjoyed on tap at Wild Monk. Not sure of the hop varietal, but I’d guess Willamette. Served in a shaker pint.
A: Pours a darker amber color with a fluffy white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film and it leaves some nice sticky lace down the glass.
S: Light caramel malt body, some mild citrus, and a little spiciness as well.
T: Fuller caramel malt body with a some light citrus and a nice resinous hop bite. There is a touch of woody spice on the finish with malts coming back adding some sweetness.
M: Medium bodied with a nice bubbly carbonation and a light resinous finish.
O: Pretty solid overall. Definitely enjoyed this variety of Heavy Handed more so than the other I’ve tried.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle from Antioch. No bottle date. Pours amber orange. Some head. Some lace. Pine, citrus and some earthiness leads to a taste with caramel, heavy pine and chewy resin. Crystal malts and earthiness follow. Syrupy. Would have put the abv higher than 6.7. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet, and gets more so. Meh. Decent, but nothing to write home about. 13.7
