3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.
