4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottles theatre of wine and the old fountain pub. Another superb IPA from the Kernel.. easily on par with myriad Nogs and Mikkeller costing twice as much. Big hoppy mouth.. floral, grapefruit, resins and slight caramel. Nicely bittered and *despite* the 7.5% ABV the huge flavours overide it. Well done for reclaiming Stella! a fine hop indeed.

Bottle-7.4 per cent. Cloudy yellow with a yellow aroma. Full of cirus and hoppy flavours that hit you upon opening. Quite a thick palate upon stunningly pleasant. Why call it Stella a name associated with blandness and uniformity?
