16th November 2011
Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Dry palate. Creamy malt forms a thin base for pithy tangerine and grapefruit. A little lemon and a trace of tropical fruits. Pithy citrus bitter finish. An intriguing IPA, quite complex and pretty bitter!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle on arrival at Natís Bíday, The Kernel. As with most of these IPAs, colour is a fantastic hazy orange. 5 for that every time. Nose is nice big pungent his of sweetish citrous fruit with orange, lemon and grapefruit and tropical notes of mango too. Possibly bit of farmyard in there? Also has a bit minerally earthiness/rain on tarmac from the NS. Finish is bitter grapefruit, bitter hops, and the standard Kernel IPA malt backbone.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Kernel. It pours hazy orange-amber, with a fluffy white head. The nose is orange sherbet, mango, apricot and orange squash. The taste is orange citrus fruits, pith, leather, earth, resin, spice and brown bread, with a big bitter-dry finish. Medium body, average carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Good stuff.
