COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First brewed in 2008 for batch # 3,000. This is our version of a Double India Pale Ale. This year we used almost 900 lbs of English pale malt, and over 40 lbs of hops in a 10 barrel batch. A nice golden color with aromas of pine, citrus and some earthy spicy notes. This is what hop lovers dream about. Get hopped up on the sauce.!
2008-2009 vintage: 8.9% abv
2010-2011 vintage: 8.1% abv

Sigmund (6950) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2015
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.2%. Hazy and surprisingly pale golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of pine / pine needles, spruce tips and dust. Very hoppy flavour, partly balanced by a moderate sweetness, the overall impression is not very sweet. Strong notes of pine needles and spruce tips. Very bitter aftertaste.

Holmen1 (5218) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2015
Fra flaske (brygget juli-15) p Mi2, Cardinal okt-15: lett uklar gylden med kort skum. Frisk humlesuppe med ubestemmelig karakter. LIte karamell for en imp.ipa, s humlene (Mosaic, Summit, Cascad, Nugget, US Golding og CTZ - de m ha foretatt lagersanering) fr suse fritt. OG 1078 og IBU skal vre 109. Mer intersssant enn egentlig god. Slank kropp for sin voltstyrke.

Flarra. Doften otroligt fruktig lite st. Dr finns massor ananas persika. Smaken oooh mjuk fin av moget pron lite apelsin pple. Och den dr svaga jordkllare doften som bara finns i kvalitets l. Perfekt efterbeska h lng smak. En medelfyllig Dipa som ltt drickes nrhelst . Fiiiin.

Holmen2 (3227) - NORWAY - OCT 12, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 Rerate from tap at Mi2 at Cardinal 10.10.16. As before, but perhaps with more malt, bitter tropical fruits and alcohol. Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 26.10.15. Cloudy straw colour. Small, white head. A bit earthy aroma and taste of citrus, grapefruit, pine and CP. Interesting experiment, rather than drinkable. Bitter aftertaste. [5/2/6/3/11=2,7]
