omhper (25723) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2016
Keg at Omnipollos Hatt, Stockholm Cloudy golden, creamy head. Perfumy nose with some lemon. Pungent citric acidity, medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Citric acid, perhaps hints of gooseberry and mango. Puckering sourness remains in the finish. One big flavour - well expressed. No edges. Technically very correct, just not very interesting. Like sour candy.

Hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Nose of gooseberry and hop skunk. Palate is light, fairly dry and has decent fine carbonation. Tart gooseberry blends well with hop spice and pine. Touch of lemon and a trace of sherbet. Light dry finish. Nice sour/wild IPA hybrid.

Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Eebria. Pours hazy gold with a frothy white head that settles into a relaxed cream. Wonderful aroma, with lots of passion fruit, melon, orange, and a bit of pine. Light sweet flavour with assertive tartness, some lemon juice, more passion fruit, tangerine, citrus zest, soft piney bitterness, wheat. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Highly quenching and refreshing on the finish, fairly dry, with moderate acidity, some citrus rind, a little grass, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit pith. Exceedingly drinkable. Outstanding beer.
