20th April 2016
Almost clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and mildly dry, good fine carbonation. Very light malts, medium sweet. Lively citra hops bringing orange, tangerine and pink grapefruit. Whispers of pine and spice. Light finish. Hugely drinkable IPA. The hops are tasty and the malt base light. Light and with a lovely balance.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2016
2016-04-15, bottle from Denman Spirits, Vancouver, tagged 11/04/15, 5 months old, 7% ABV, 8-5-8-5-17=43
Hazy golden to light amber color with generous compact head. The hop aroma is deep, penetrating; it brings citrus fruit, citrus peel, a bit of manure; excellent overall. Bone dry mouthfeel; the blond malt profile is quite nice, delicate, with a touch of cereals and toffee, leaving space for the hops, which are mostly resiny, piney, and a bit citrusy.
2012-10-19, bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV, 6% ABV, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Amber color, hazy, with generous head. The aroma is hoppy, with citrusy hints, and some earthy character too. Smooth caramel and toffee flavor, with light biscuity touch; strong bitterness, the quality hops provide a very good citrusy and resiny character. Long final.
Fresh and excellent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle split at JF’s, 04/05/14, from the bottle barn in Santa Rosa.
Clear golden orange with a mahoosive off white head.
Nose is caramel malt forward, hoppy tinges, grass, orange pith, light grapefruit.
Taste follows along the same lines, all about the malt, the citra hops and citrus fruits just don’t shine through.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, some hop bitterness in a sweetish close.
Nah - this is a letdown, give Kernel a call and they’ll tell you how to showcase a hop/hops, to sweet and caramac.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Uncle Henry’s Deli. Clear orange colored pour with a white head. Aroma is quite tropical and fruity. Lots of nice pineapple notes. Big grapefruit and orange...a hint of lemon-lime, maybe peaches. Light malt sweetness to the palate. Good pineapple, grapefruit, and orange zest flavors. Sweet peach and a mild lemon-lime soda.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber, hazy. Strong citra nose is unfortunately quite chewy, either from crystal malt or age (it’s a few months old) or possibly both. Taste is similar, with moderate bitterness and some toastiness, but really lacking in brightness.

Tap at the Rubicon. Pours clear copper. Cat piss aroma - lots of citrus. Near med body. Flavor is really hoppy citrus with some arguable floral over a mild caramel backbone. It’s very hoppy and very bitter and very very good.
