wyzzywyz22 (1973) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle, Ales by Mail. Hazy orange pour with a reserved white head. Lovely tropical fruit and fragrant hop in the nose. Flavour followed suit, smooth and dry. Pretty robust bitterness. Hard to fault this APA.

rosenbergh (7058) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2013
330 ml bottle. Bottled 18/07/13. BB 18/11/13. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Cloudy orange golden (hazy brown w/ yeast) colour with a small foamy off-white head. Tropical fruitiness, pine and grainy malt in the aroma. The flavour is bitter resiny and piney hoppy with grainy maltiness. Quite nice but not spectacular.

jackl (4671) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013. The pour’s gold with a small head. The aroma’s honeyed pear. Apple. Rich countryside brash grassiness. The taste is similar. Earthy grass root. Lemon. Somewhat funky. Moderately bitter finish. Medium body, fine carbonation.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
330ml bottle lugged back from England. Clear orange-gold with a large fizzy-foamy fairly long-lasting off-white head. Smells like citrus heaven - citrus zest and ripe pink grapefruit - so good. Taste - wow, so much spicy citrus, yet full of tropical fruit maltiness, lots of almost marigold floral bitterness and some alcohol too - and this bottle has been in my fridge for almost 3 months. Average body, solid carbonation, only a medium-long bitter dry zesty ctirus finish, a little pithy linger on the palate. As almost always, superb from Kernel.

CraftBeerNick (925) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Keg at Lovibonds 1st November 13. This one is not as aromatic as some, surprised given the Galaxy element. Taste is nice and smooth, I found this not as carbonated as some. Liked it but not as much as some Kernels

Habanero (2664) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with a small medium sized off-white head. Aroma citrus, mango and passion fruit notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and decent bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A nice pale ale indeed.
