4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

Pours clody orange with a thin white head.
Aroma is lovely. Boozy, malty and potent Citra coming through. Taste delivers against the aroma with a lovely finish and good body.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Maakun at his place. Nice one dude! Slightly murky pale golden with thin head. Sweet malts, marijuana hops, sweet resin, chicory like bitterness. Medium body, velvety smooth oily feel, low carbonation. Very hoppy, almost like chewing hop pallets. Not as fruity as some of the other Kernel IPA’s, I kinda miss the fruitiness.
