3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first that hits me is the smell.. a nice tone of citrus and bitterness comes too me. The foam is last lasting and pretty white. The color is a little dark for a IPA. The taste starts of as very strong. a strong beautiful sweetsness empowers me. the ending is very mild, and it stops a bot too abrupt, alltough the sweetness is there until the end.

Fra flaske på M2 Cardinal nov-14: klar kobbergylden medkort hvitt skum. Lett og frisk aroma av sitrongress, appelsin og gress. Smaken er likeledes, med en tørr avslutning som gjør at det ville værten glede å helle en halvliter eller to av denne innenfor snippen.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Hoppyminded one with some nice oranges, peaches and some acid. Easily drinkable finishing off with a bit medicine. Without that this quaffy one would have been incredible.

Bottle from trade with Cunningham - thank you, Henrik! The beer pours out in a deep hazy amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and barley. Taste of hops, citrus, grapefruit, grass, herbs and mild spices. Dry-bitter finish with some malty-caramel hints. DRinkable and refreshing.

Thanx2Rune for this one. Pours a huge pearl-apricot-white head.
Hazy amber body. Puffy lacing ring. Head goes slowly.
Scents of sweet malts, herbal hops, sole of a shoe, vanilla tart cream.
Slightly smoked style taste of caramel malts, hops, resin, notes of citrus.
Ok body, a bit eager carbonation.
Ends somewhat dry, citric peels, smoked wooden malts, green hops, half way lingering.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle. Looks good with a warm amber orange colored body, a good amount of floaters and big chunky sediments. It also has a medium sized bubbly off-white head on top. Mild but quite a hoppy and fresh nose. On the caramel sweet side with a red malty sweetness and it even has a little bit of cocoa butter and green coffee beans in the back. Quite hoppy this! It can somehow remind me a little bit of the bitterness love found in the original nanny state. Dry minerals and wet grass. It feels light oily in the mouth and it has a average carbonation level. Some faint smoky hints and it’s really leaving my mouth dry this. Odd, but not bad. Something I could have with food. 23.12.2013
