On draft at Angel’s Trumpet. Small tulip glass. Color is clear, almost light-ruby, with a small, quickly vanishing head. Huge hop aroma! I knew immediately I would love this beer. Bitter, piney, oily, fruity. Everything I love in a big IIPA. Seriously, very well done. I am impressed!
Bottle from HomeBrewStuff. Dark golden airy head subsides to thin skin. Straight forward hoppy aroma. Taste is also all about the hops, sharp and biting. Malts carry this hop bomb to the finish line .for a minute there, I swore I was in Knee Deep territory... ansalon (3795) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2017
Pours semi clear golden. Aromas of citrus, peach, apricot, grapefruit, resin. Taste is fruity and very grassy with a pleasant bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala.
Pours foggy amber.
Aroma: Strong piney resin, grassy hops, some citric fruit lurking.
Heavy body, sweet, residual, pines again, late bitterness, very matching.
Balanced. Lingering pine palate. Good. zizzybalubba (1862) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2016
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Raleigh (North Hills). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, wet grass, and soft grapefruit. Extremely bitter taste of pine needles, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and passion fruit. Lingering bitterness on the palate with moderate warmth. Exceptional if over-the-top hops are your thing.

Draft: Poured a coppery with a white head. Aroma is tropical fruit. Taste is hoppy tropical fruit. wlajwl (6747) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 23, 2016
Aroma is very spicy/dank hops and citrus/fruit. The flavor is citrus, fruit, grapefruit, malts, mild tropical fruit and a mix of spicy hops, bitterness and slight sweetness in the finish. adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2016
On tap @ the brewpub during RateBeer weekend. Yellow orange appearance with a white head. Resin, pine, weed, and grapefruit in the nose. Medium full body. Moderately high bitterness and sweetness. Lots of flavor - dough, toasted bread, ganja resin, orange citrus. This was actually pretty good which was surprising after trying seven bad or mediocre beers at Moylans before this one.

Fra fat på Mi2, Cardinal april-16: lett uklar oransjegylden med flott skum. Stor maltkropp balanserer den overdådige humlebruken. Marmelade av bitterappelsin og fiken. Som en frisk barleywine (dersomdet finnes), kraftkost som passer oss humlemisbrukere. Holmen2 (3568) - NORWAY - APR 13, 2016
From tap with HDI at Cardinal 13.04.16. Hazy orange. White head. Aroma of Sevilla marmalade, dried fruits and sweet alkohol in aroma and taste. And resin. Heavy mouthfeel. Most like an American barley wine.
