330 bottle beer merchants. Lovely subtle mango aroma, doesn’t hit you in the face like some do. Slightly perfumed, the finish is medium dry, with just the occasional peach sweetness to counter. The hop combo makes this a wee bit different to the recent Kernel beers I’ve had. Great stuff.

JohnRMurdoch (3636) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2013
330ml bottle from Beermerchants.com. Hazy amber brown, not much head. Mild tropical fruit hop aroma. Complex biscuit, toffee, resin hop & mango flavour. Sharp on palate, bitter leafy aftertaste. More complex than most Kernel IPAs but I prefer them simpler.

Monchito_IPA (166) - SPAIN - SEP 15, 2013
Color ámbar, dorada, con espuma muy blanca y persistente. Tiene un aroma muy cítrico al comienzo pero a medida que se calienta y oxigena empiezan a aparecer otros aromas frutales. De entrada en el paladar cítrico y amargor moderado, final largo y amargo pero al ser tan afrutada también tiene un dulzor muy equilibrado, cuando está en su temperatura aparece el melocotón sobre los cítricos. Es una IPA extraordinaria.

KyotoLefty (7192) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle sampled @ decadent symmetry tasting. Typical pale golden-orange color. Great hop nose, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit. Original blend. Very grassy, hoppy flavor, dry but a bit doughy, lots fo fruits. Spicy and very bitter. Good stuff.

77ships (4906) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2013
Courtesy of KyotoLefty. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ decadent symmetry tasting. Bottled on 17/06/2013. Hazy orange with a white head. Smell beats taste, smells of sweet grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, lots of flowers, lots of flowers,… Tastes very briefly of sweet lemon before turning to very bitter grass, very bitter herbs, bitter white berries, typical Kernel yeast,.. Light but Kernel yeasty body,… Bit too bitter for me but not bad, still not top Kernel.

Bottle at home from odd bins london bridge. Hazy burnt orange pour with a loose big bubble head that persists. Aroma is pine and resin with a bit of strawberry / neopoliten ice cream? Medium full body with average carbonation. Flavour is clean slightly nutty base malt. with clean assertive bitterness. resin and orange pith. Long lasting rounded bitterness lingers. Quality as ever from Kernel.
