COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Golden in colour. Strong aroma of citrus with hints of felinus urinatis. Not particulaly bitter. Lots of hop taste and long aftertaste of lemon and lime lemon sweets and citric acid.

Holmen1 (3549) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2012
Fra fat på Cardinal: "I’ll kill that cat" - aroma. Mye humle i smaken, men den overveldende aromaen henger ved.

Veramente un’ottima ipa ed era già scaduta da un pò, immagino come poteva essere fragrante e fresca se fosse stata al 100%!

Clear golden pour with a small creamy head. Floralness and citrus dominates aroma. Some grapefruit also. Grapefruit and citrus in taste also, but citrus is relatively Subdued. Some melon and passionfruits. Body is light to medium with a smooth mouthfeel and mesium carbonation.

ClubGonzo (4727) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a clear light orange body with a medium white head. Sweet apricot and rose water to the nose, with citrus, grapefruit and hints of pine and honey. Taste is mellow grapefruit tones, flanked by moderate caramel and honey-ish sweetness. Some pine notes, hints of apricot and herbal grass notes in the finish. Fine balance. Medium body and carbonation, high on drinkability all in all. A very nice IPA on the mild side of things.

superspak (3418) - Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2012
500 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours cloudy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Good soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, orange, mango, lemon, herbal, floral, grass, grapefruit, bread, and earthy spiciness. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance; very pleasant. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, bread, herbal, floral, grass, mango, and earthy spiciness. Good amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor balance of malt sweetness/bitterness; with zero astringent hop flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with almost no warming noticed after the finish. Very smooth and drinkable. Overall this is a highly excellent English IPA! Great flavor balance and hop complexity; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
