330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
Bottled 04.03.14 - Pours clear golden orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of lovely fresh exotic fruitness, crisp citrus and grassy notes, caramely malts, biscuity notes and grapefruit. Taste is smooth, hoppy and exotic juicy fruity with notes of crisp citrus, floral notes, grass, caramel and biscuity maltiness. Finish is juicy fruity, hoppy, bitter and perhaps a bit dull compared to the overall taste. Still very tasty and yet another top notch IPA from Kernel.

Bottle. This is a really fruity chap and fairly easy on the yeast front. One of the best kernels I’ve tried.

On tap @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 10-04-2014.
In short: a "light" fruity ale.
Pours hazy pale gold, with nice white head. Short head retention, good lacing. Fruity, tropical, citrusy aromas. Light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, mild bitter. Seems to have a light body despite the abv, Very pleasant and enjoyable.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
From keg at The Kernel. Good white head . Nice golden colour. Overwhelming aroma of tropical fruit - mango and passion fruit. I don’t recall an IPA with such an intensive and beautiful aroma. The freshnness of the beer /served two weeks before schedule because it was so good already/ is stunning. In taste more tropical fruit , citrus , and long pleasant bitterness balanced by lovely malt make it a IPA fan paradise. A beer of my dreams but only when served fresh on the spot. If only I lived in London...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy golden colour with late awakening, average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Slightly cautious, citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of tropical fruit, passion fruit, mango. Taste is bitter and citrusy hoppy with a mineral touch, hints of passion fruit and other tropical fruit, caramel malty basis; really bitter throughout, long lasting bitter finish. Another beer that contributes to the rise of Mosaic in my personal hop charts.
