Bottle, labelled as 7.3%. Appearance- a cloudy burnt amber, with a half-finger white head. Aroma- creamy malt, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, quite a lot of mango, some pineapple juice. Taste- plenty of creamy malt in this one, bitter orange peel, marmalade, grapefruit juice, peach, biscuity malt, bitter hop resins, fairly short creamy finish. Really well-balanced IPA, excellent.

Incredible Aron and clean mouthfeel. Nice citrus nose that delivers on the palate with a nice, smooth finish. One of the best British IPAs

330 ml bottle at home, slightly passed BBD. pours hazy orange with a little head. Rich peach and mango nose, some pineapple as well. Impressively well balanced body - exotic bitterness and sweetness are well aligned, evolvong to a semi dry finish. Lovely. Taste is grpefruit mixed with peach. This is very good stuff! Body even tends to a DIPA. Impressive!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light copper yellow with a large, frothy head which remains for a while. Aroma is pine, spruce, grass, floral and orange marmalade. Taste is orange marmalade, slight caramel sweetness, pine, hop resin and notes of grass as the beer warms in the glass with a moderate bitterness throughout. Mosaic single-hopped IPAs make me feel like Iím in a forest eating toast and marmalade at 0400 on a Friday after taking a wrong turn on the way home from a heavy night on the tree sap.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons (Bottled on 29-04-2015). Dark gold, quite hazy, with a big, fluffy and persistent off white head. Glorious aroma, so fresh and aromatic. I canít describe everything because itís both complex and mesmerizing: tropical, dank, juicy, citrusy, herbal and piney, so good, really. Slightly bready/biscuity taste wise, but thatís to be expected. Moderate to high resiny bitterness, clean and lingering with just a mild rooty astringency. Quite dry and refreshing, easy to drink like a <4% beer. Blood orange and grapefruit reminiscence in the aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Oh Kernel, I love you so much.
