3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kveldens sist4e flaske på Mi2, Cardinal des-15: klar kobbergylden med kort skum. Citrus, stikkelsbær og rognebær i aromaen, og smaken har et visst barley wine-preg. Innledningsvis ganske saftige saker, men den blir litt flat og endimensjonal etter hvert. Tørr avslutning. Fair enough.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours clear amber with off-white head. Aroma of caramel; fruity. Tastes sweet with bitter finish. Not an imperial IPA, rather an American barley wine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1409 - 25.12.2014 - 330mL Bottle #20 in the 2014 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a cloudy amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is spicy, earthy hops, mild berry sweetness, mild citrus. Taste is extremely hoppy, lots of piney, resinous notes, again subtle orange sweetness. Fairly balanced in terms of hop profile, and managing the ABV, this is a solid DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large three-finger head that settles into a tight foam dome. Some streaky ring lace after every sip. The liquid is orange-amber with a mild chill haze.
Darker pale ale malt aroma. There’s some alcohol to the nose as well. Low floral hop nose.
This is a surprisingly smooth IPA. This leans to the malt for the style. There’s plenty alcohol warmth. The hop is spicy but not biting--this beer could stand to have a little bit more hop in it. Full bodied with a lower carbonation level.
I am surprised this is from Brazil as this is a very good DIPA.

Pours clear almost copper. Aroma is malty, not the hop I was expecting. Taste is malty sweet, has some bitterness, but not as much as I was expecting.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A Mexican IIPA. Ariba! This is a meaty beast, an opaque, muddy orange with robust foam topping. It’s earthen and full of flavor, with a plentiful mouthful of woodsy hop bitterness. (#6049, 10/15/2015)
