Similar to many Kernel IPA’s, fruity with peaches, grapes, watermelon and grapefruit on the first taste. Then a citrus sharpness at the end. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Always fresh, thick, cloudy and sharply bitter but smooth from a kernel IPA. Lots of pine and citrus here from the hops and a little caramel sweetness in the malt too. Delicious

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating # 12800. Bottle @ Alesbymail. Pours cloudy golden orange with a stable creamy head. Nose is amazing. Fruit punch - hoppy and exotic. Shiiitt. Flavor is red grapefruit, pine and citrus. All about the hops - and they are really fresh and lovely. I am almost brought to tears.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle.
Clear golden color with a medium sized head. Fruity and hoppy on the nose, some resin and caramel malts also, a bit stuffy, probably due to Motueka hops. Flavor is malty and mildly fruity with resinous hops, wood and grape fruits. Bitter malty palate, and again, a bit stuffy. Decent anyway.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Hazy copper with a small head. Aroma is distinctly floral and zesty. Flavours of tropical fruits, clementine, a little grass, perhaps light herbal notes. Quite sweet initially leading to a moderately bitter finish. Very nicely balanced. Carbonation is moderate and fine. Mouthfeel is slightly slick. Another excellent beer from the Kernel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy golden amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of strong herbal hops, citrus and toffee. Flavour of heavy caramel malts, strong herbal hops, some pine, watermelon, wine gum, mint, and some mango sweetness. Some minerals as well. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and a heavy, strong bitter and quite herbal finish. Interesting hop profile and overall a tasty IPA.
