CraftBeerNick (849) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle at home 27th April 2013. Not as much hop aroma as some of the kenel ipas, quite dark, some head and lacing. Taste is quite musky, not so much citrus fruit. Ok, but I have had better from Kernel

olio (5970) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
33 cl bottle. Bottled on 25.02.2013. BBE 25.06.2013.
Pours clear copper color with a large frothy head. Pine needles and intense floral hops on the nose, citrus fruits and mild goose berry bush also. Flavor of is very crisp with lots of citrus fruits, some resiny hops add up to a slick palate. Sweet caramel notes on the aftertaste. Yet again a nice balanced IPA from Kernel. Good.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2013
Has the characteristic dryness that one associates with Amarillo. Light citrus followed by more earthy notes which mellow out the brew. Quite subtle, yet drinkable and pleasant.

Idiosynkrasie (3639) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 13, 2013
330ml bottle [6.3% abv]. Minimally cloudy orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy hop aroma, some grapefruit, a touch of muggy resin. Taste is minimally bitter hoppy, citrusy. Fresh, drinkable, almost a bit light.

RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Big orange & pine aroma, soft & creamy palate, peppery notes in the nose, big flavours on the tongue. Solid stuff yet again.

Borresteijn (4574) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2013
33cl Bottle brought from London, thanks Manon! ABV 6.3% (quite some difference with the 7.5 stated here) Hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of fruity citrus hops, light sweaty, light floral. Flavour quite sweet, tropical fruit, sugar, sweet orange, citrus bitter finish. Light-bodied, smooth. Nice, but not great this time.

spacecube (767) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
Pours hazy orange / red with a small head. Average carbonation and some sediment in the pour. Nice juicy fruity aroma, mango & passion fruit with the sort of sweet, puckery texture and flavour from the amarillo hop. Nice, solid singe hop IPA. This bottle 6.3% and 6 weeks old.

Theydon_Bois (7948) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Tap at the brewery, 30/03/13. Hazed golden with a thin white head that clears to the edge and forms a film. Nose carries juicy hop notes, mango, pine, grapefruit, citrus. Taste comprises jammy fruit, hops, orange, grapefruit, pine, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, bitterness in the finish. Decent as expected.

jamestulloch (1281) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Aroma: Pungent aroma of caramel and pineapple.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Light carbonation. Light lacing.

Taste: Quite sweet for an IPA. Strong caramel flavour with hoppy bitterness to balance it.

Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation fizz.

Overall: A very good IPA but not particularly distinctive or memorable.
