lusikka (6533) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy bright orange yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is very strong with floral hops, grapefruit, lemon juice and exotic fruitiness. Flavour is very hoppy with floral notes, green tea, lemon juice, exotic fruits and mild sweetness. A good malty body. Long lingering bitter finish with a huge hop bite. Great stuff!

Theydon_Bois (9930) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle share at Ma Che, Roma, 09/02/13, from the brewery. Hazed light amber with a thin bubbly white head that dissipates edgeward. Nose is hops, pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit notes. Taste comprises grapefruit, mango, orange pith, mineral tones. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Top notch well balanced IPA - quality Kernel fayre!

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Bottled 14/02/13. An orange coloured beer with a little whitish head. Nice citrussy hops in the aroma. More peachy than anything. Same in the mouth. A good body with good flavours but it’s not typical Nelson Sauvin. Not as fresh as it should be so the hop notes have doubtless deteriorated but it’s still tasty.

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 11, 2013
09/02/2013 330ml bottle (thanks Theydon_Bois!). Giallo pallido, leggermente torbida, schiuma leggera e poco persistente. Al naso un magnifico bouquet di frutta, di grande intensità, malto presente ma non invadente, freschissima: fantastica! In bocca conferma le stesse sensazioni, grande equilibrio malto luppolo e ottima freschezza. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Magnifica single hop!
