4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Mr Lawrence, Brockley. Hazy orange pour with a lingering white head. Fabulous tropical fruit bowl aroma that’s up there with the very best. Piney resinous hop, weed, citrus aplenty, a little sweetness. A little sniff of heaven if there ever was one. The flavour lived up to the infinite promise shown in the nose. More juicy citrus mingled with some balancing malts and superb hoppage. Bitterness spot on and drinkibality just off the scale. Refreshing and hugely satisfying. Quite simply this beer is the bomb, and my favourite offering thus far from the Kernel. World-beating stuff.

powerhouse freshness in the hop profile, featuring biting grapefruit and tropical fruit. A certain mustiness and astringency plays under the fruitiness. Quite a dense flavour package for an IPA.

Wow! Serious hop forward aromas, passion fruit, grapefruit, some resin too. Taste is Bittersweet with luscious tropical flavours and a grapefruit like pithiness and bitter astringency, which is well balanced. A really great beer, Kernel pack an incredible amount of flavour into their beers
