chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
330ml bottle drunk on 4 December 2010. No best before date. Golden amber colour. A bit cloudy. Orange zest character throughout. Not dissimilar to the Citra + in that there is a lot of tropical fruit character too, but I thought there was just a little less of everything. Still pretty good but didn’t have quite the presence of some of the other Kernel IPAs I’ve tried. I see that others are raving about it so I wonder if my bottle was just a little iffy, not in any major way but just enough to take the edge off it.

[330ml bottle, The Kernel Brewery] Pours hazy golden colour, decent head with no real rising carbonation. Fantastic hoppy aromas, slight pine and citrus fruit mix but the vinous Nelson Sauvin come through as well. Evin really crafts his beers to get that kind of blended aroma. On the taste, as you’d expect, juicy almost tropical fruit flavours with a long bitter aftertaste from the alcohol. Really moreish and so drinkable for its punchy abv. Outstanding [28112010]

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber, white head. Citrus (orange) and caramel on the nose. Orange marmelade / toast / caramel. Slightly cloying and less aftertaste than I was expecting.
