Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of citrus fruits, hay, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, hay, and malt, leading to a dry finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Hazy amber beer, pale cream coloured head. Light semi dry palate. A little creamy malt - dry. Mild minerals. Sweetish orangey hop with some tangerine. Subtle tropical fruits - pink grapefruit, mango and peach. Dry finish. Very nice IPA - not too aggressive but with plenty of hop flavour.3.8

2 Pints of Keg at the Bull. Very light haze on this gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light, with a perfect amount of mild dryness and a great fine minerally crispness. The thin pale malts do what they should and provide light sweetness to underpin the amazing fruity hops. Vibrant spicy tangerine hops with great streaks of orange and grapefruit (yellow and pink). Touches of citric peel and lemon and a whisper of peach on the backend. Hop spice tantalises the back of the tongue. Stunningly good, a joy of a fruity IPA. Lacks the skunk and pine of many great US IPAs and even some of Kernel’s own. This is just such a clean, fruity and perfectly pitched IPA. Wonderfull.

Bottle from Zombier, Málaga, Spain
Cloudy copper-amber color with generous compact head. The hop aroma is quite nice and a bit fruity, maybe more was expected. It has a good caramel and toffee flavor, with a lean body, not too sticky, and the aromatic components of the hops are now more evident, with bitter oranges and medium piney resins. It has a strong but not excessive bitterness.
Very good.
