Bottle from Beermerchants, Bottled 27.4.14, labeled as Simcoe Columbus. Pours light hazy golden with a 2" creamy off-white head.Aroma of mango, malts, grapefruit and oranges. Taste is moderate sweet fruity, with a distinct light bitter orange and grapefruit, long lasting. Soft carbonated, light soapy mouthfeel, still a very decent beer overall.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle @ Byron Burger, South Ken. The pour’s a clear golden amber color with a small white head. The nose is tangerine, light soap, fresh resinous pine tree and a bit of cheese. The taste is quite woody, full of coniferous freshness. A touch of citrus and exotic fruit. Dry bitterness on the finish. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, a touch too dry to be considered a top-shelf Kernel brew. Still, good.

Bottle, Spring 2013 from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Slightly hazy golden pour, crowned with a bubbly white head. Enticing nose containing some lovely fruit. Flavour was piney hop, citrus and a little sweet malt. Dried out towards the finish. All told, a cracking APA that is oh so drinkable.
