Leighton (13821) - London, Greater London, - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s during Jack’s Farewell Tour, Opening Night in London - big thanks to Jack himself. Pours hazy, deep amber with a large, strong yellow-tan froth head. Nose has some booze, bananas, a bit of yeasty bread, hints of tangerine. Medium to big sweet flavor, a lot of citrusy fruits orange, tangerine, mild alcohol kick. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly warming and sweet to finish, lots of sugary citrus. A bit sticky sweet. Nice, if a touch heavy.

Borresteijn (5315) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2015
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. Flavour is quite sweet, very malty, bread, spices, raisins, quite fruity as well, liquorice root, firm bitter finish. Full bodied, quite high carbonation. Nice, but rather sweet, still.

chimpgibbon (424) - 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.
