4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Light golden straw, fairly dulled haze. Bright resonant strums of lemon and wide eyed lime. Highlights of slick malt so well placed itís like lesser attempts have chewed up and regurgitated the best bits. Sweetness is maybe a little dragging on the simple refreshment; I donít know if itís the lower ABV or freshness but this was much more ruthless in profiling the Citra. Fair carbonation throughout circles things meanincingly. This is as unfathomable as The Kernel gets, crisp and firm with the yeast only popping up to glue the joins. Really compresses in the single hop without crashing through the rest of the structure.

ABV 6.6%. Bottled on 01/07/13. Pours a hazy light brown orange colour. Nice orange, some earthiness, slight funky b.o íish stuff, floral, piney, some candy... it smells great. And it tastes good too. Sweet, slight caramel to start, tropical fruit mix thing, a nice dry piney taste, citrus bitter finish. Itís very nice.

Bottle at Bodega de la Ardosa, Madrid
name is handwritten, no ABV, no bottling or bbe dates
Cloudy amber color, with medium sized head. The aroma if hoppy, fruity and a bit animal. Smooth mouthfeel; some malt and toffee flavor, strong Citra presence (bitterness and citrus fruits), light residual sweetness; but also a tad too yeasty.
Good but a bit messy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to BenH! Pours cloudy amber with a small beige creamy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, a touch of passion fruit - quite intoxicating. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, medium bitter with a dryish bitter finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice West Coast style IPA.
