Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Gorgeous sweet orange marmalade aroma. Quite dry and earthy, very soft and easy on the palate. Lovely prickly aftertaste, great tang in the finish. New superlatives for Kernel beers needed yet again!

Definitely my favourite brewer of single hops IPAs. As always, incredibly fresh (helps to live in London) with a smooth malt. A cloudy pour with hops that taste of bitter tangerine and grapefruit.

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Hazy gold with thick white lacing. Very fresh aroma of dank hops and pine resin, undertones of candied lemon peel, cut grass and orange marmalade. Luxurious palate and soft carbonation. A some what reserved flavour compared to its bouquet, lead by a crisp dusty malt. Highlights of lemon, grass and pine are present and lead to a long dry bitterness.
