UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 31st March 2012
Hazy amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Light semi dry palate. A little minerals. Smooth semi sweet floral Motueka takes the lead. Balanced nicely by mildly bitter citric orange in the mid and just a whisper of earthyness in the semi dry finish. Nice light floral IPA.

21st May 2012
7 weeks on and the beer is now mildy hazy and palate is softer. Motueka still dominates with it’s floralness, the Citra bringing mellow orange and skunk. The Chinook a little lemon orange I suspect. Nice!

Leighton (10868) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle shared with Paul at The Kernel during Thomas’s special day, London. Pours cloudy, rich gold with a foamy, white head. Dry, grassy and piney hops in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with light and dry pine, toasty grass and orange citrus. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, dry and lightly resinous finish with crisp grass, some dry yeast, light wood and pithy citrus. More restrained than some other Kernel IPAs. Excellent stuff.

Scopey (6730) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle from Utobeer. It pours cloudy light orange, with a thick white head. The nose is citrus pith, hay, grass and earth. The taste is orange, tangy marmalade, hay, straw, grass, resin, citrus pith and earth, with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough, but below average for Kernels typically high standards.
