Aroma is hoppy, piney and tropical. Taste adds some orange, yeast, citrus and light grape. Nice bitter end. This IPA is a great alternative to get a break from all the sweet X-mas beers out there!

On tap @ Cardinal. Pours hazy amber with a very creamy head. Nice aromas of citrusy hops, others detected some faint spices. Flavors full of fruits and some resin from the hops. Pleasant bitterness. A christmas IPA, maybe. A good IPA, definitely.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Hazy dark amber colour, large and creamy off-white head. Lovely aroma of fruity hops (citrus, tropical fruits) and spruce, a hint of spices. The flavour is full of fruity and resinous hops, the expected bitterness is there, but not extreme for an IPA. Hints of spices. Sufficient malts to support the hops. Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fra fat på Bishop’s Arms, nov-12: Uklar, gylden med litt skum. Masse humlearoma i form av grapefrukt og furunål. Deilig, noe tørr og krydret (i tillegg til aleerede nevnte elementer) smak med god balanse og munnfylde. Slik skal julen ringes inn!

Draught. Cloudy darker orange in color with whitish head. Sweet, just like some brown sugar cooked with some citrus in aroma. Flavor quite similar, just a bit like something one would make up in your sparetime while visiting the woods. Different for sure from your ordinary way ipa.
