3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vino Wines. Murky golden body with a medium white head. Excellent lacing. Aroma isnít as bright or fruity as I was expecting considering the hops used - instead itís quite herbal, woody, dank and yeasty. Flavour of muted citrus, pine and bitter, leafy hops. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. A solid IPA but, for me, not one of Kernelís finest.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Borefts 2013. Smells amazingly fresh and fresh citrusy. Itís a near golden glowing yellow orange one this and it has a really nice deeply lacing bright white head. Really like this aroma. Grapefruit and in general lots of fresh citrus fruits and juices. Lovely flavor also. Itís light and almost cloudy in the mouth. So clean and crisp on the tongue with a lovely bitterness. Super balanced before its leaving a mild peppery hint in the lovely aftertaste. One amazing beer! 28.09.2013

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Moeder Lambic. Light yellow with medium snowy white head. NOSE : tart, strong lemon peel, pine, pomelo peel. Soap and nail polish. SIP : creamy with medium carbonation. Moderate sweet that is overpowered by strong citrus aromas. It burns with pine and zest till the end. The bitterness and citrus seed like dryness lasts for a long time. OVERALL : overpowered by hop aromas this IPA has a great body to go with.

Nice cloudy yellow orange appearance thanks to the bottle conditioning. A goo 2 finger head of foam to boot.
Big piney and some grapefruit aromas in the nose. Very damn hoppy.
Ditto in the taste. All hoppy, no malty that my palate can detect.
Great mouthfeel. This is a very hoppy bitter brew and I like it.
