spacecube (767) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
330 ml bottle, approx 4 weeks from bottling date. Nice hoppy aroma with sweet orange, grapefruit, passion fruit, guava, basically a lovely fruit salad. These 3 hops go really well together, finish is long, juicy and slightly bitter. Carbonation is quite lively, palate is resiny. Very nice.

Glorious. Spent my evening with a bunch of toss monkeys. The highlight? A prick telling 20 odd jokes in a 15 minute presentation and not a laugh could be heard apart from his own. Almost enjoyed that as much I am enjoying this beer. Yet another marvellous Kernel creation. Yum.

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle from ?Jacks? Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames 16.07.13 consumed at home 18.07.13 On first glance there would be little to differentiate this and the Wild Beer Madness IPA (just consumed) colour wise this is also hazy orange with medium sized white head, the nose is more subtle here, clearly it is hoppy but if it is possible to detect sweetness on the nose then this has it, I think I know what I mean. This is soft in mouth, the hops are bitter and sweet, in fact when compared to the Wild beer this is much further down the sweetness spectrum. Curly fruity flavours in the mouth, it is juicy, with a streaky sweetness, there is plenty going on and it is great to compare this with yhe Wild beer this is is much more of a slow burner with a late finish, overall it just about draws level but you would never have imagined this early on.

Idiosynkrasie (3639) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Resinous and piney hop aroma, citrusy, notes of grapefruit, blood orange, apricot, orange zest, a touch of hay. Taste is resinous and piney bitter hoppy, hints of grapefruit, apricot, mango, a grassy touch of hay, complementing caramel malty basis. Excellently balanced, though not really clean; crafty and precisely scruffy and unsettled.

lusikka (6069) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours an unclear copper orange colour with a white head. Aroma of fresh strong pineapple, herbal notes, pine and sweet toffee. Flavour is full-on floral bitter with sweet toffee, licorice root(!), strong pineapple, mango, lemongrass, some biscuit and grapefruity tanginess. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lovely warming, fruity, floral finish with strong bitterness and surprisingly heavy sweetness. What a treat.

ACD (621) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 27, 2013
33cl bottle. light orange pour. aroma gives heady juicy tropical fruit -tangerine, mango, peach. Taste gives plenty of juicy fruit (sweet tangerine and peach), light passionfruit, quite a bit of herby stuff, light pine, bit of menthol. Standard kernel malt body - beautiful light biscuit & cake dough - lets the hops take centre stage. Lingering pine and pithy orange/grapefruit bitterness.

Really well balanced, very drinkable IPA.
