4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Dean Swift - another case of the Kernel doing what they do best: brewing superb fresh and fruity IPAs. This one has a sweet nose of oranges, mango. Taste is medium-bodied, beautifully hoppy without overshooting in any direction. Mild hoppy aftertaste.

Solid Kernel offering, on tap at the Old Fountain, although they had it down as 7.2% rather than 6% (error? Didn’t taste mega strong).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a head yellow gold with a thin white head and some visible fine carbonation. Aroma is elderflower, piss, lychee, passion fruit, lemon, grass. Light body, foamy. Fresh, crisp with Elderflower, lemonade, mango, a hint of candy, a touch of veggie earthiness, finishes with a touch of bitter grapefruit, but its subtle. So well balanced, complex. It's really nice.

Pours with a rich, thick, sea shore-like head. Color is a delicious light amber. Aroma is an explosion of fruit and hop. Amazing taste, full of tropical fruit. Refreshing, slighly sweet, moderately hoppy. Crisp palate with a soft carbonation. Nice, extremely long finish.

Bottle from Cornelius 330ml @5%. 3 months since bottling so not in prime condition, but still a lovely IPA from Kernel. Tangerine and pineapple right through this hazy gold number. tartness on the end to balance it. Just great.
