2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
( 500ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours cloudy yellow with great lacing and a nice oily head. Nose is celery, light hops. Taste is very bitter oils, offensive. Finishes very bitter citrus but a nice oily body here.

Tasted from a 500ml bottle looks fantastic but smells very strange, sickly sulphur smell that’s not very pleasant. Fizzy, empty and not particularly exciting.

Bottle: I had heard good things on this ale and had high expectations the bottle version tasted like a strong fizzy lager - would never buy another. Tried on Cask at Euston Tap, this was better.

@Basunen: Mycket mild fruktighet. Smaken är mycket lätt aningen tunn. Inte så häftig direkt.

Looks like a lager. Smells of fresh citrus. Tastes like a bitter pilsner. Not really classic IPA territory. Dull finish. Overall, not an awful beer, just not a particularly interesting one,

Fra fat på Cardinal: "I’ll kill that cat" - aroma. Mye humle i smaken, men den overveldende aromaen henger ved.

Gold in colour with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus and hops and it tasted of sharp hops.

Murky yellow,stark white head.Intense bead.Skunky,cat piss nose. A one dimensional bitter palate, no malt to back it up. Waste of time and money

Cask SR & Henglers. Another example of a brewer losing its way on the mass market. A pale shadow of Jaipur as it was. No discernable nose or palate. Taste of apricots and grapefruit which used to dominate this ale has been replaced by dull grass and marzipan sweetness. No doubt due to the hop content being compromised by inferior,cheaper examples. The Pale Rider curse has struck again. As an aside the Kipling poured in the SR was even worse. I will give Thornbridge benefit of the doubt as I suspect the beer was too "green" to be objectively reviewed.

Bottle at Republic Bier Halle. Soap and cascade hops. Difficult to drink, but good IPA. Dry grass, hops
