spacecube (804) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2013
330 ml bottle 6.7% abv bottled 8/4/13. Pours murky orange / brown, with a fair bit of yeast sediment. Big Simcoe hoppy aroma, seville orange, grapefruit, juicy and tangy before ending with a bitter finish. As usual from Kernel, itís a solid hoppy IPA

jamestulloch (1320) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Very murky golden body with lots of yeast flecks floating around. This is yeasty even by usual Kernel standards. Massive white head that holds well. Lots of sticky lacing marks. Pungent hoppy aroma - freshly cut blood orange, lychee, grapefruit, candy and pine resin. Sharper than the sweet aroma suggests. Orange, grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. A very fruity IPA. Surprisingly smooth and drinkable for its strength.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
6.7% version May 2013 from the brewery. Pours clear orange gold with a slight haze, needed a good swirl in my Duvel glass to get rid of some of the carbonation to release all the aromas and flavours. I really love Simcoe. And the aroma on this is pure Simcoe. Piney cat pee. Lovely. Really good in mouth too. Just delicious. So drinkable. Good bitterness on finish and that pure Simcoe pine sharp grapefruit finish. Gorgeous.

Bottle at the Rake. Clear copper thin beige head. Decent simcoe aroma. Even a bit of funk. Not sure. Bit hard in the mouth. You do get that with American style ipa. Very hard candy. Tastes its strength too. Its cool, if a tad hard 3.3/5. Re-rate at Bottle Shop Canterbury. 7.4% abv. Gorgeous simcoe aroma. Some creamy vanilla in the mouth. Light bitterness on the finish. Touch of sweet alcohol.

PhillyCraft (3167) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours hazy orange with small white head, good lacing. Aromas and taste of soap, rye, smoke, and astringent grains. Not bad, wish it was a little bit fresher.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy, long-lasting white head. The aroma is grass and nettles, leading to a grassy hoppy medium bitter flavour with a little dry spice and pepper on the back of the palate and in the finish. An ideal summer drink. Serve fresh and cool! This is the 6.7% version.
