Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Golden brown with an off white thin head. Toffee with orange rind and nutty marzipan alcohol. Underlying tropical fruit with pineapple in particular. Woody with bitter piney notes. Spicy with vanilla oak barrel character and floral yeastiness. Warming alcohol but quite smooth. Very good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Deep reddish orange in the glass, large head. Strong aromas of sweet tropical fruits, slight pine, orange, alcoholic touch. Taste is a massive punch of tropical fruits, honey, pithy grapefruit, some orange, burnt caramel. Dry finish with a slight alcoholic burn. Brilliant full mouthfeel, this tastes fairly strong but not 10.8%. Delicious.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Copper orange color with a moderate sandy head... Lots of sheet lacing. Nose is thick with citrus and floral hops, sweet overall. Tastes rich and syrup like with loads of citrus, tropical fruit, and floral. Retains a nice sweetness with the bombardment of hops, probably why I’m thinking syrup. Loving this... very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amber color with an off white head. Aroma is loaded with citrus hops and some oak. Pine, a little booze and some earthiness fill in the space. Bubbly palate. Flavor is of hops, malts, booze, and more hops. Still really hot right now. Maybe aged another 6 months would smooth it out. Still some good stuff though. Leaves a citrusy hop finish. Fresh weeds here folks.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at mellow mushroom new Albany. Great pour and perfect color. Thick whitish head that lingers a bit. Nose is fruit sweet and hop. Dry hop attack with a bit oversweet sugary burst that limits how good it is. Aggressive and strong but floral notes, hop bite, and sugar covers it up. Would do again but not top 5.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
650mL bottle from Slowbeer. 2015 vintage
Pours a hazy copper body, holds a dense creamy cm of off-white head.
Hops literally explode from the glass - candied lemon peel, orange sherbert, pine sap, ginger root, cinnamon stick (somehow!?), resiny leaf, dried herbs, with rich pale caramels and biscuity malts.
Palate is properly resiny, sticky, just clings on, warming i’ll admit but so smooth and tantalising.
There’s just so much to enjoy here, time to get whimsical - candied orange, fresh ginger, green grass freshly mowed, hewn pine, with a firm bitterness, not so much aggressive but in balance with the big caramel, biscuit malts in support. There’s a warmth a booze emanating through the palate, that goes almost unnoticed until you finish inevitably finish this amazing brew.
Yeah, this is pretty damn good!
