3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy amber-red, light beige head. Tropical fruit and piney aroma, appaya, dome dank. The malts are really subdued. The taste is similar - tropical fruit, mellow citrus pith bitterness. The malts are somewhere around - not letting the beer feel dry. Very well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thick head with dark amber body. Malty nose with citrus hops coming through. Well balanced with subtle caramel notes & the hops providing an orange & piney flavour (Simcoe?). An excellent emulation of a fruity US IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal aug-15: uklar kobbergylden med højt, hvitt skum som varer. Mild og innsmigrende humleduft, solmodne fersken og mango pluss citrus. Karamellmalten holder det hele på plass. Smooth munnfylde og ettersmak, meget lettdrikkelig. Dog ikke helt superfrisk, synes der sniker seg inn noen halvvisne sommerblomster.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sweet hoppy brew with a lot of fruits and caramel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty - lightly oaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty - lightly oaty and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, lots of citrus - some grapefruit hoppyness. OK dryish IPA. Could be drier with less (without) caramel. Oat also brings "mellow flavor" that not usually wanted in IPAs. Well hopped IPA anyway.

Nice aroma of pine, citrus and a bit of honey from the malt. Taste is dry and bitter from start to finish with just a bit of sweetness at the start. Nice IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle served in a teku glass. Amber pour with massive (slightly) off white head. Clean hop aroma which transcends into a crisp and citrus taste with a very hop forward palate with the malt only really balancing rather than overpowering. A slightly astringent paracetomol bitterness with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Other than these slightly picky observations a pretty good IPA
