Slightly peppery, citric nose with some candy notes. Flavour has plenty of piney resins with some freshening grapefruit and mango. Finish is very dry and bitter and moreish. Fine.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is quite a murky dark peach colour with plenty of sediment. Lovely aroma with lots of juicy nectarines and rolling tropical fruit - taste to match wit some grain and a good bitter finish. Modest carbonation. Solid Kernel but not up there with their very best.

Keg at the Bat. Cloudy yellow with good white head. Then hops, hops, hops. Touch of lemon zest. Could do with a bit more malt backbone, but still a nice IPA.
