3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. It’s an unclear, light amber colored beer with a dense, two-finger thick light beige head. The aroma is a bit on the malty side I think, sort of meaty, but with generous amounts of pine cones and resins. Some grass in the flavor, lots of bitterness, but still with a solid malty body. Pine cones and resins. Pleaseant carbonation, full body. Too malty for my likings this one, more like an Amber ale than a DIPA. Not bad though. 141101

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff denne flotte maiaften: fint skum og med en bær-og sherryaktig aroma og smak som minner litt om barleywine. Uhyre lett i smaken for såpass høy voltstyrke. En sixpack ved grillen kunne vært fristende men fort blitt fatalt. Muligens er det de mener med humlemord?

330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.2%. OG 1072, FG 1010. IBU 107. Hops are Warrior, Summit and Amarillo. Unfiltered and unpasteurised. Amber colour, only slightly hazy, moderate head, slightly off-white. Strong aroma of fruity hops (oranges, tropical fruits). The flavour is medium sweet (= not too much) with distinct hops throughout, fruity first, piney and grapefruity bitterness in the finish. Love for hops indeed, but not murderous.
