Sampled from can at Standard Market, Westmont. This puppy zeroes in on the resiny character of every hop, bringing out notes of pine tar if you’re not careful. A deceptively light hop note in the nose, al;so just the same color as the Sweet Action. But a bigger malt backbone, and it’s needed, too. A lot of resin sticking on my tongue, my inside cheeks, what have you. If I spill some on me, I’d be a human Post-It Note.
Can to sniffter pours a cloudy yellow amber with a large white head.Heavy malt with perfume hops up front quickly followed by pine and grapefruit.Good medium body that is sticky with an astringent finish.The 9.1 % alc is hidden quite well.A good beer. sinfull (1678) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 7, 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 (5643) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 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.
