On cask at Black Sheep, Dublin

Hazy amber with steady cask froth.
Big marijuana, resin, and orange rind nose.
Caramel and strawberry with lots of orange, pine, and mango purée.
Sappy finish and resiny linger.
Medium, round, chewy.

Can't fault it: sticky, enough hops and a bit of sting, plus maybe a speck of chocolate malt. At the same time, it cloys as it goes, tastes better when it's cold (never a good sign,) and I wonder if it really needs to be 7.4% (strong for Ireland) for this amount of hops.

Not bothered to see this permanent.
