UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 26th January 2013
Light haze on this amber - gold beer. Good white head. Palate is soft with fine carbonation. Floral Centennial orange starts with a little hop skunk. Very nice tangy lemon - lime in the mid, almost sherbet. Subtle mango - apricot underneath. A lovely hop fruit medley! Mild creamy malt base. Moderate bitterness in the aftertaste. Kernel are scarily good!

Unbelievably this is still going strong. Good orange peel and orange, touches of lemon and grapefruit. Nice tang. Great!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Lovely hoppy aroma - fresh and fruity. Taste is a bit plasticky (got this in some other stella-hopped beers, I wonder if that’s the link?) Drinks very easily for 7.4%. Nice balance between aromatic fruity hops and bitter bite, and more than adequately supported by a sweetish malty backbone.

The taste is orange, mango, pineapple, resin, pine, herbal edge, floral, salt and some alcohol warmth with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Nice depth of flavour and well-balanced. One of best new kernel IPAs I’be had in a while.
