Bottle, drunk 6 weeks from bottling date. Aroma of intense citrus in the way the hop used can impart. Detect a tiny hint of yeast or other sugary smell. Pours a straw yellow, murky but pleasant-looking. Carbonation not excessive, but pleasantly present. Tastes refreshingly citrusy without being overpowering. Contains definite malt sweetness but not the cloying crystal malt kind. In that sense a thoroughly British IPA, and not an American one despite the hop variety used. Very pleasant half pint that shows different facets as it warms up.

Gluepot (239) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2015
powerhouse freshness in the hop profile, featuring biting grapefruit and tropical fruit. A certain mustiness and astringency plays under the fruitiness. Quite a dense flavour package for an IPA.

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours quite a cloudy amber with a light layer of off white froth. Pleasant spicy pine hop aroma. The taste is lots of fresh pine with a lovely caramel backing. Fairly spicy too. Top notch drinkability and mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Wow! Serious hop forward aromas, passion fruit, grapefruit, some resin too. Taste is Bittersweet with luscious tropical flavours and a grapefruit like pithiness and bitter astringency, which is well balanced. A really great beer, Kernel pack an incredible amount of flavour into their beers
