COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Special;
What started out as a little bit of fun quickly became the favourite of many die hard ale fans and has become permanent. Probably best described stylistically as a Californian IPA, this beer has all the rich malt and fruit flavours of a Barley Wine combined with the hoppy crispness of a Pale Ale. And as best said by one of its biggest fans, "Hoppiness = Happiness."

Holmen1 (5478) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2017
Fra fat p Mi2, Cardinal mars-17: lett uklar korngul med flott skum som varer. Nydelig aroma og smak med en lekker bitterhet og munnfyde. Tropiske frukter, grapefrukt, gress og snev av mynte. Meget frisk og lettdrikkelig. Noe honning/maltsdme i avslutningen.

evannell (890) - Krakw, POLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Pomarańczowe, zamglone, z ładną pianą. W zapachu grejpfrut, trochę igieł. Smak to przede wszystkim grejpfrut. Mocna słodowa podbudowa (tak, jakby na tej ilości słodu dało się pociągnąć spokojnie do 7,2 ABV) daje jakieś owoce, ale takie bardziej suszone, bez kwaskowatej podprki. Końcwka typowo grejpfrutowa. Fajne.

Sigmund (7126) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2017
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar (Moor Night), Stavanger. Golden colour, huge white head. Aroma of piney and grassy hops, also some grapefruit. Smooth mouthfeel. Piney and grapefruity hops in the flavour too, a tad more dry than sweet. Reasonably bitter finish.

ozzatoadisback (141) - ITALY - FEB 6, 2017
Dark golden/light orange, slightest haziness. Firm and healty head, nice retention and lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and piney/resinous. Taste has just the slightest crackery malt base, citric notes (again, mainly grapefruit) and a good dose of resinous/piney bitterness. Overall obviously on the bitter side, averagely so for the style. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall enjoable; its highly drinkable and clean/flawless, but very much unremarkable.

Fat @ Irreale, Madrid. Klar guldfrgad med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av malt, karamell, grapefrukt och tvl. Medelbeska. Inte min grej riktigt med all tvlen.

ERB92 (703) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2017
Aroma of tropical fruits and hints of malts, pine and herbs. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body with a average carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable IPA. Plesant aroma with lots of fresh hops.
