Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Crisp semi dry palate. Creamy malt which is semi dry. Fresh orange and clementine come tangerine. Bitterish marmalade follows with a trace of grapefruit. Minerally fresh finish with a carbonated sting. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Delicious!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at the Kernel Brewery. It pours very hazy orange-amber, with a thin foamy white head and soft carbonation. The nose is farmyard, earth, cheese, hay, grass and a little bit of tangy citrus. The taste is tangy orange marmalade, mango, earth, biscuit, lime zest, light spice, hay, grass and bread, with a dry-tangy orange finish. A very tasty and drinkable IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Kernel Brewery, Bermondsey, London 04.06.11 Pours orange/amber with a white filmy head. This has a good thrusty bitterness from the off, with a softness that caresses the tongue. A touch of tangerine perhaps but also a little bit of Polish seemed to come to me from somewhere. Lovely combination of hops and a little more assertive and interesting than the Mt Hood Pale ale that I drank this alongside. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours a just slightly hazy, pure gold with a medium, frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit rind, sharp pine, tangy citrus. Flavor is medium sweet, some rich bread and toasted sugars, melon and grapefruit bitterness, some earth. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Warm on the finish, sticky with sugar and hops, good and toasted malts, earthy and tangy citrus. There’s a healthy dose of tropical fruits in the aftertaste. Yeah, this is good stuff.
