4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
5th October 2013
Also at Borefts 5. Almost clear gold beer, little white head. Palate starts smooth but turns minerally crisp. Light creamy malt base. Lovely hops! Fresh orange and tangerine with a delightful light floral touch. Undertone of peel bitterness and a little lemon. Finishes soft with a mild fresh hop sting and a bitter peel linger. The bottle pour was a lot cleaner than the Borefts pour. Elegant effortless excellence!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Modern-classic The Kernel beer with rich aromatic hops withut going overboard. The simcoe shines in here, perhaps helped by the amarillo. Floral, citric, peachy, fresh, light grassy, very nice. Just enough malt backup too and full enough due to the not-so-low abv. Bitter but certainly within bound. Another great IPA. (On tap at Borefts 2013)
