3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the BeerTemple. Clear very pale gold pour with lacy white head. Aroma is super hoppy, fruity kiwi-mango, soapy, grassy, hints of cat piss, citra style. Taste is quite bitter, very light maltiness, slightly strange mix of pine and tropical fruit with wet bitter grass. Palate is light, well carbed, very dry. An IPA that showcases all of Kernel’s mastery, yet I become more and more convinced that mosaic is not my hop.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014
May 2014 - Bottle, 2 months old, 6.9%, into tulip. Hazy dull orange, lightly sparkling, very small white head. Aroma - is not that appetising. I’m mostly getting urinal (urine and pine), chemical, straw, orange in the background. Body is light, pretty foamy, low carbonation. Taste is semi-sweet, herbal, grapefruit, light bitterness, tacky dry finish. Nice enough - balanced, soft flavours yet comes across as very hoppy. (3.5)
July 2014 - Bottle, 2 weeks old, 7.2%. Hazy vibrant yellow, sparkling, small white head. Aroma - musty lemon, touch of pineapple, lager. Body is medium, quite foamy, a little spritzy. Taste is straw and grapefruit with a touch of alcohol coming through. (3.5)

33 cl bottle.
Pours golden color with a large white head. Very fruity and hoppy on the nose, grass and some goose berry bush making it even more refreshing, some caramel malts also. Bitter palate with lots of citric fruits, grass, gooseberries and some lemon, resin also. Again, very refreshing and balanced, these guys know how to make enjoyable hoppy brews.
