Fairly weak aroma of orange and malt. Clear copper with nice full white head and full lacing. Taste of dirty earth. Slight orange and malt in the background. With citrus and nice bitterness at the backend. Wonder if there is an issue with the line or age - thus does not have the bursting aspects of Falconer’s Flight when I have brewed with it.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff feb-13: deilig aroma med karamellsødme og citrus. Har de brukt crystal malt? Ihvertfall er munnfylden fin. Frisk og smaksrik, og farlig lett å drikke til å være 7.0%. Denne må jeg prøve en hel flaske av. Og det fikk jeg gjort, takk til Gml. Strand Øllager: slik skal det smake på en benk ved kanalen i strålende sommervær. Livet er dejligt.

A nice amber pour with a white head. Good floral and citrus peel hops, particularly orange peel. A bit of grass, some sweet bread, and a nice pine note. The flavor has a lot of pine and floral hop notes. Nice bitterness, mild bread sweetness, and a dry finish. Orange peel, a hint of grass, and a lightly herbal quality.

0,33 l shared bottle at Cardinal. Hazy orange body with a thin white film. Raisin, dried apricots, hoppy pollen on the nose. Aromatic, light salty and bitter hop juice in the mouth and a hint of overripe cream. Full bodied with a little alco warmth. Smooth to drink. Sigmund (7390) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.0%. Orange to amber colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and fruity hops. Nice hoppy flavour throughout, but not extreme bitterness for an American IPA. Bitter enough for me, though. Sufficient malts, but not very sweet. Very drinkable. cheap (5794) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2013
What can be said? It’s an on style IPA. Mild aroma of ipa hops. Look is burnt orange. Taste is bitter medicine. Good sizzle for an IPA. Seems to lack the viscosity of many thicker ipa. Overall it’s pretty much on style. Not my favorite style.
