3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from The Kernel. Colour is ’Kernel IPA orange’. More clarity than normal though. White head. Nose is sharp, minerally, citrous fruit. Grapefruit dominant, with lime and lemon. Pine. It’s crisp and sharp as is the taste, with nice fresh grapefruit, lime and minerally. Very zingy but lacking the tropical fruit and complexity of some of the others. Still very good. Finish is bitter grapefruit and leafy hops.
