Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal okt-16: kobbergylden med fint skum. Karamell, appelsinkjeks, sukat og noe ubestemmelig nøtteaktig. Floral avslutning. Tørr. Kjenner ikke at de har brukt "a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops" - hvor har de tatt veien?

12 oz bottle. This one is probably underrated - I found it to be quite nice and above average. So goes the ratings world.
