tiong (3771) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 03.09.13 - Pours clear orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, exotic fruits, crisp biscuity maltiness and grassy notes. Taste is grassy, floral and fruity with loads of crisp biscuity malty notes and hints of caramel. Finish is smooth, biscuity and crisp with stingy bitter floral and fruity hoppiness. Okay, but a bit unbalanced hop profile.

Countbeer (4429) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle: Served in a shaker glass: Medium sized white foamy head on top of a hazy to murky yellow colored beer with orange tints. Aromas of load of hop fruits, grapefruit, citrus, mango, peach, melon, pine apple, apricot, etc. Some gass, hint of malts, some yeast and lot of floral tones. Flavour has again loads of hop fruits, citrus, grapefruit, peach, some lemon, some mango, grapes, hay, hops, floral tones, yeast, growing bitters, something pie and light light tart, some malts and herbs. Aftertaste is floral, very bitter, some fruits, earth, yeast and a malty touch. Low carbo, soft very creamy mouthfeel, medium to full body and a creamy texture. Lovely and typical well done Kernel IPA aroma, good bitter in taste but think it might be just a little bit old. But still very good!

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2013
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel, BB 03.01.2014. Léger orangé, col épais tenace et blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet tropical prenant, sur un léger rétro-nasal de levure assez âcre, agrumes et note de pin. Palais est malté laissant ce profil sec et terreux voire râpeux en bouche. Pointe d’épice, léger herbacé sur une pointe épicée. Encore ici, et surtout venant de la mousse, on perçoit cette impression de sac de houblons. Léger en agrumes avec une touche de fruit de la passion, petite pointe de douceur et résiduel de pin.
