4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells grassy and piney with subtle hints of apricot and orange blossom. Taste is a bit more fruity with sweet apricot up front, some carmel flavors build towards the mid, but the resiny hops come in to clear out the sweetness on the finish. Nice easy mouthfeel, not too grippy for the IBU.
Can @home. Pours golden, white head. Nose is pine and resin, grapefruit and cheesy hops. Taste is toffee, resin and pine again, slight grapefruit. stoutgap (64) - Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2017

On tap at Tavernakaya. Definitely a hob bomb. Piney and juicy aroma with some malt sweetness present. Resinous flavor with some mango and sweet malt. Some alcohol burn but mostly the strength is well hidden mr_h (5645) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2017

Can @ Crown Rivers JDW Heathrow T5. Light orange amber, good head. Resin malt aroma. Dry cereal boiled sweet flavour. Bitter aftertaste. This does not feel like 9.1%. Another good selection By JDW. jookos (6875) - FINLAND - JUL 26, 2017

(Keg at Sori Taproom, 20170725) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, resin and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, resin, caramel, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had resin, malts and bitterness. A hoppy brew dominated by resin but still balanced. Well done.
