U.S. Meets Europe. A collaboration with De Molen Brouwerij and Hoppin’ Frog Brewery. Kilos of American hops to add a crazy twist to this European-style ale. The fruity, spicy flavors of this malty Double Saison are nicely complimented by an abundance of late and Dry-hopping with the finest American hops. Bottled on Jul 12th. 2012

Note: This is the version brewed at De Molen. For the 10.9% Hoppin’ Frog version, go to the page of that brewery.

75cl Bottle, bought at De Bierkoning a few years ago. Slightly hazy reddish amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of thick sweet malts, spices, bread, earthy hops, liquorice root.

chimpgibbon (427) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle. Big frothy muddy orange affair. Full on hop and cheesy funky aromas, plenty malt, spicey. Blood orange and hefty sweetness in the taste, some lemon, touch of cough syrup, more deep boozy orange. Farmhouse elements kick on late. Palate starts rich and oily then ends medium dry. Very interesting beer, maybe a little intense even for the abv.

0,7 liter fles. @home. Een Ipa. De soort waar ik het minst van houd. Deze heeft wel veel smaak. Het schuim is snel verdwenen.

2012 bottle. Pours an orange unclear beer with a good white creme head. Smells mandarin, cream, caramel. Tastes cream, fruity, spices. Average to lively carbo, medium body and a sticky texture. A bit to old I think. But still nice.

Hoppin Frog Super Charged from Antioch. Brownish with a white head. Aroma has spices and malt and more spices. Very farmhouse-y. Taste has sweet tangy fruits, spices and heavy malt. Light to medium bodied. Tangy. Finishes somewhat short and sweetly spicy. Shrug? Solid for style although malty.
