3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Pours an amazing peach color with a big soapy white head. Aroma is hugely hoppy with tons of fruits: lemon, pineapple, peach. Some resinousness too. Taste is surprisingly low on bitterness, given the rich hopppy profile. Again, tons of summer fruits and resin. Medium bodied with good carbonation. One of the most refreshing and delighting beers drank recently. Amazing

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle straight from the source. Medium amber pour with a small white head. Nose is big mango fruit. Loads of pacific tropical goodness. Pineapple and orange. Light kiwi and whatever the fuck they put in all those polynesian cocktails. The taste is wonderfully balanced. Light tropical fruits meets the sting of citric acid. Some lemon and mango smoothie. Slightly chalky cheesy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, fantastic. Other people can claim US IPAs are so much better if they want to. What do they know?

Shared by MrDick. Unassuming modest sized IPA just off dry, full aroma, heavy neroli oils, earthy, bits of mineral, a touch of malt biscuit. Simple, beautiful, fresh. A real star at a recent tasting.

Bottle at home, this is another solid IPA from kernel, but not as good as some of the others of recent months, Centinial was outstanding

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ Jolly Butchers 2014/4/8 Resinous orange aroma. Amazing flavour from the Mosaic - I assume! Probably a little hop dominant as you would expect from a Kernel IPA. Great body and good carbonation. There is a lingering sweetness but you’ll have to drink it slowly to discover it. Which is probably a good idea.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from BeerRitz. Golden yellow amber colour, foamy white head leaving some lacing and lovely fresh passionfruit aroma. Tropical fruits taste, passionfruit & mango, with a tangy grapefruit citrus bitterness against a smooth caramel malt base with slight biscuity notes. Smooth mouth feel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry earthy bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours hazy orange with medium white head. Aroma is mostly orange peel blended with sweet malts and traces of tropical fruit. Taste is pretty much mango-like, with some toasty notes and resin. Soft bitterness. Juicy at first, but after a few minutes there’s a dry hit. Medium body, good carbonation. Nice.
