3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty sure this is the version I had on tap at Craft Beer Co. Wow, did not know the Kernel made so damn many varieties of their APA and IPA, batch by batch. Big lustrous orange pour with a silky head and a massive citrus nose. Soft, elegant mouthfeel and taste that balances the bitter with the sweet. Not quite as rocking as the APA but very good nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2011. Pours an unclear and amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus and lemon. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is refreshing with bitterness. Overall a good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear orange amber (be careful with the yeast cediment) with nice fluffy beige head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is piny, fruity, a bit sweet, caramel and citric. Acidy citric mouthfeel. Fruity, citric, piny, hoppy and sweet flavor, very nice and different. Acidy fruity palate. Finishes with a very nice tart bitter bite with a citrus touch.

Bottle, shared by Leighton on the RBWG bus. Psyched to try these Kernel beers I have heard so much about. Lightly hazy orange with a small fizzy white head. Nose is citra, big citrus, lightly tropical, caramel malt balance. Flavor is similar, lots of fresh citrus, soft bitterness, fairly dry juicy finish. Tasty.

Draught @ BBF’11:
Small white head on top of a hazy orange colored beer.
Smell hops, citrus, peach, soap, manure.
Taste citrus, hops, peach, abricot, bitter but more fruity and good full bodied taste!
Good fruity and bitter aftertaste.
Low carbo, creamy texture and mouthfeel and a full body. Lovely!
