Bottle, thnx to jmgreenuk. Another pale ale by The Kernel, a different hop combination.. curious for this. Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of tangerine, citrus and grapefruit and has quite sweet, sugary touches in it. Flavor is fairly bitter, citrussy and has a dry mouthfeel. The amarillo is defintely noticeable. Quite nice and ok.
