22oz bomber thanks to raiders707. Pours a clear light Amber color with a thick creamy off white head. Strong aroma of tropical fruits and grapefruit. Despite the intensity of the hops, this beer is nicely balanced with the malts, but pine, citrus, and grapefruit are definitely the dominators here.

Fra flaske pŚ Cardinaltreff juni-13: a hop blast to remove the remains of your taste buds. Ute av balanse, men antakelig god for de som liker en imperial overhaling av gane og svelg. Lukter bedre enn den smaker.

Dark, reddish golden. Little head. Enormous aroma and taste of American hops. Too much hops. More isnít always better. Made for people with a taste and nose handicap.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper-orange color with rather smallish head. Floral, grassy, citrus aromas abound. Flavor is very hoppy/citrus with a bitter finish and nice, resinous mouthfeel. Alcohol is well-hidden and kind of sneaks up on you. A good one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Appearance is a rusted orange and gold color with a half-inch of white foam. Lots of grapefruit, cannabis and dank hops in the aroma. The flavor is a blend of pineapple, mint and grapefruit rind along with notes of hops resin, pine and lemon toward the end. Just a little bit of a malt presence in the background to counter the hops. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a final dose of citrus and vegetal hops bitterness in the finish. Wickedly bitter and citrusy as a quality California DIPA should be.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows big citrus fruit with orange marmalade and tangerine alongside soft pine and resinous hops. Also some clean malt and soft booze.
Very aggressive flavours. Massive pine and grapefruit with just a little malt underneath. Very sharp bitterness in the finish mixing with the booze. Almost harsh.
Nice moderate carbonation.
