First brewed in 2008 for batch # 3,000. This is our version of a Double India Pale Ale. This year we used almost 900 lbs of English pale malt, and over 40 lbs of hops in a 10 barrel batch. A nice golden color with aromas of pine, citrus and some earthy spicy notes. This is what hop lovers dream about. Get hopped up on the sauce.!

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2015
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.2%. Hazy and surprisingly pale golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of pine / pine needles, spruce tips and dust. Very hoppy flavour, partly balanced by a moderate sweetness, the overall impression is not very sweet. Strong notes of pine needles and spruce tips. Very bitter aftertaste.

Holmen1 (4907) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2015
Fra flaske (brygget juli-15) på Mi2, Cardinal okt-15: lett uklar gylden med kort skum. Frisk humlesuppe med ubestemmelig karakter. LIte karamell for en imp.ipa, så humlene (Mosaic, Summit, Cascad, Nugget, US Golding og CTZ - de må ha foretatt lagersanering) får suse fritt. OG 1078 og IBU skal være 109. Mer intersssant enn egentlig god. Slank kropp for sin voltstyrke.

Flarra. Doften otroligt fruktig lite söt. Där finns massor ananas å persika. Smaken oooh mjuk fin av moget päron lite apelsin å äpple. Och den där svaga jordkällare doften som bara finns i kvalitets öl. Perfekt efterbeska åh lång smak. En medelfyllig Dipa som lätt drickes närhelst . Fiiiin.

Holmen2 (2931) - NORWAY - OCT 12, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 Rerate from tap at Mi2 at Cardinal 10.10.16. As before, but perhaps with more malt, bitter tropical fruits and alcohol. Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 26.10.15. Cloudy straw colour. Small, white head. A bit earthy aroma and taste of citrus, grapefruit, pine and CP. Interesting experiment, rather than drinkable. Bitter aftertaste. [5/2/6/3/11=2,7]

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of spices, lemons, straw, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

kramer (5912) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-copper body under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is showing a hefty amount of crystal malt, and the sweetness that comes with such. It smell as though there are plenty of hops on here as well, but the sweet caramel and brown sugar notes drown out most of them. The flavor is more bland than I was expecting, I thought there would be a big bitter and citrusy start to this, but the flavor is actually rather bland and boring. The hops are really dulled by the heavy caramel and crystal maltiness. Some lighter hoppy flavor on the late finish that lingers a bit. Medium bodied and just a little clingy with fizzy carbonation. Meh, not one that I’d have a second go-around with.
