found this one to be slightly disappointing. looks bad, very hazy and a strange copper/yellow colour. flavour is good, but the body was a bit thin.

Bottle. Hazy gold brown with a thin foam. Aromas are biscuit and caramel with pineapple and floral pine. Woody with hints of seawater and mango. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with some mango and lemon tartness. Bitter grapefruit with green pine. Yeasty with base caramel malts. Salty and peppery with good bitterness to finish. Good.

Have been lucky enough to try this, very fresh, quite a few times now and it is probably my favorite IPA FULL STOP. Pours golden with a medim full head that is fairly dense and creamy. Smell is superb! Just one of those beers I find myself smelling over adn over without even tasting and still feeling great about it. Lot’s of Citrus zest mostly grapefruit, sticky pine resin and honey and grass as well rounding it out. Taste is much like the smell but a bit rougher and heavier on the pine less so on the citrus. Patate is medium and not as sticky as I thought it would be, but this is an IPA not a DIPA so I guess I should have expected the refreshment that I got rather than the sticky icky I expect from great DiPA’s. Overall this is a fantastic IPA from a World Class Brewery which I am lucky enough to live about 1.5 miles away from.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Light carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of lemon meringue, grapefruit and biscuit. As it warms, mango and pineapple notes become evident. Flavour of candy, lemon drops, tiger bread and pine. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. As much as I love it, I think when it’s used alone the Citra hop is better suited to light, low ABV beers as opposed to high ABV beers.

Rune (9236) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2012
100ml, draught comfortably chilled at CBC. Apricot coloured body. Spotty lacing. Aroma of fresh citrus hops. Pineapple, oranges and lemon providing a very fresh fruity taste. Dry bitter ending. Lightly oily palate. Very thirst quenching (Copenhagen, 12.05.2012).

jackl (5605) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle from the legendary Kris Wines. Slightly hazy deep orange color without the usual huge Kernel head (perhaps my pouring skillz are on the wane). The nose is funky orange sherbet and plenty of sweet tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango, all the usual suspects. The taste is light salty cheese, plenty of orange, sea grass, resin and more tropical fruits. Nice, light body. Smooth and supple. Overall, another good one from the lords of Bermondsey.

Draft courtesy o Toby and the crew. Tons of tropical fruits in this one, both the nose and the taste, with just enough bitterness.

GT2 (9272) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Tap at CBC. Pours a low haze yellow with creamy foam. Pineapple sorbet nose with saltwater. Taste is rich, sorbet, pineapple and tropical melons. Very rich, near oily palate. This one was delicious. Poured myself a few of these while The Kernel crew wasn’t looking ;)
