Northern Monk Patrons Project 4.05 "Jungle IPA"

It's got Um Bongo DNA. It's got a healthy dose of Citra hops. You do the maths. It's basically a sweet fruit juice with a touch of hop bitterness, with a subtle sweet malt finish. It would not be out of place on the breakfast table, that's how fruity and sweet it is. One NOT to tell my wife about otherwise she will try and drink my stash...try it people, it's definitely tasty.

The Unintended Collaboration #1

This idea came from Ben Ramone Thompson (I cannot claim it as my own), of the UK Supermarket Craft Beer Forum group on Facebook. Musing through a thread on said group, he mentioned that he'd mixed the two beers roughly 50/50 and enjoyed it. Now I love these two beers, and curiosity bit and bit hard. I would not be able to sleep until I'd sampled this Frankenstein mix (hence the video thumbnail), so whilst shopping in Tesco today, I acquired one of each with which to make this bastard child of two breweries who had never intended these two to meet.

I didn't really know what to expect from this arranged marriage, but I had a couple of prior observations. The first being that I loved the hoppy nature of Mr President, and I loved the grapefruit bitter sweet flavour of Love and Hate. What came of the marriage was not expected...find out more with the video. It works out roughly 8.2% when you mix half and half, and has spawned a new section to my YouTube channel - The Unintended Collaboration. I give you, ladies and gentlemen, The Comb Over / Donald (I can't decide which, the reason for the name choices is in ze video).
