Bottle at the Kernel Brewery on 25 Aug 2012. Poured a hazy orange colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of fresh hops, with lots of grapefruit and mango. Citrus in the flavour, with musky straw and grain. Finish was dry cereal, biscuit and bitter resin.

Not so incredible, nice aroma of tropical fruits, piney, grassy hop. Taste is similar, no complexity. Okay ipa!

Bottle at home picked up at the brewery. Nice and fresh. Mostly clear golden orange coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is lovely tropical fruit, lychee, peach and melon. Some light citrus in the nose as well. Flavour is copmposed of full juicy fruits, lychee, melon with a little burnt grass. Semi-sweet semi-full palate, moderate carbonation. Solid assertive clean fruity, hop bitterness. Very tasty fruity IPA.

Bottle, huge thanks to my man James for bringing this back for me!! Very cloudy orange colored pour, medium sized dense white head. Nose and flavor are gorgeous, with unadulterated orange peel and grapefruit flesh, hints of spruce, lemongrass, tinges of caramel malt balance, but still lean and gorgeously drinkable for over 7%. Gorgeous dryness on the mouthfeel, clean as hell. Totally different from something like Hill Farmstead, but the hop character is full, pure, and stunning. Damn impressive.

Had it from the tap at Cafe Derat, Utrecht (NL). Fresh mowed grass and citrus smell. From the tap and really no carbonation at all... no head as well... Flat as a real english ale, could have been a bit more :( but maybe the tap adjustment isn’t 100% ok. Nice flavours tho. Really a lot of Simcoe! Grass, round hoppy and some pine, citrus and herbs that create a strong long aftertaste. To ale-ish this time... The Kernel can do better than this. I have to re-rate it again somewhere in the future > due to tap adjustments.

Bottle. Hop dominated, yet balanced IPA. Very fruity, but with a bitter finish and a biscuity sweetness. Great stuff!
