3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Couple of bottles at Cafe Oto, Dalston. American style ultra-hoppy, bitter IPA, but of course fresher than we’re likely to find american examples over here...
Big grassy hop aroma, loads of piney, resiny hop flavour, not as much grapefruit as most Kernel IPAs I’ve drunk. Malt and yeast flavours clean and straight forward, this beer is all about the hops.
