4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A hazy golden coloured beer with a frothy white head. As expected with such a hop bill, the aroma is a proper fruit salad on the senses! All manner of citrus fruit, lime, orange and grapefruit are prominent, then banana, mango and peach, plus there is a hint of grassiness too. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, all the fruit flavours are present, along with a mild clove spice and cough candy-like flavour, this ushers in a smoother, slight sweeter flavour that tames the rampant hops into a considerably well-balanced finish. Tasted at Moeder Lambic "Fontainas" Brussels.

Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Big bursts of grapefruit followed by a rush of citrus into a pineapple finish. Lovely stuff. Not as heavy / sticky as the other Kernel IPAs and doesn't seem too strong though weighs in at 7%.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small, very white head over clear golden beer. Cakey nose, sweet herbs with some flowery, blossomy hops. Faint citrus. Bitterish-fruity. Faintly resiny and flowery. Spritzy, oily slickness, medium bodied. Bit disappointing, seen the hops used, the taste would have to display some more fireworks.

Draught at Mikkeller Stockholm. Light hazy hay yellow liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of lemon peel, citrus, mango, light bread and marmalade. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of lemon peel, citrus and light terpentine. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Great aroma but phenolic, boozy taste.

Keg in the North Riding Brewpub, Scarborough. Pours a hazy yellow with a very thin white head. Big fruity aroma with passionfruit especially. The flavour is very tropical - pineapple, grapefruit, mango and passion fruit along with light spice. Very tasty.
