phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 25, 2011
Cask @ Borefts Beer Festival. Hazy yellow, not much head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, orange, sour fruits like citrus and pineapple, a hint of bubble gum, candy floss, a dank characteristic along with the slightly rural and hayish yeast that characterizes many of The Kernelís beers. Taste is hoppy harmony, all the tropical marvelousness of the aroma, balanced bitterness and the Kernelís yeast which I find very interesting. A lovely APA!

suprchunk (2740) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Cask at BBF. Cloudy lemonade color. No head, no carbonation. Hoppy, very hoppy in the nose. Citrusy, lemon and grapefruit mostly. Sweet and malty with a huge hop taste and aftertaste. If this was carbonated it would be one hell of a beer. Not bad flat, but could be better.

500ml bottle hand labelled for me by Nate at the brewery. Slight haze on a pale orange brown gold colour. Lasting white head. Head retention is good. Tropical fruit aroma. mango and guava. Huge mango. I should know, I skinned and chopped up two large ones this afternoon. Some leafy hop too. Great aroma. Perfect mouthfeel. Mouth flavours donít quite live up to the aroma. Needs a touch more malt backbone to carry this immense fruit. Iíve pulled something in my back and itís killing me. But even that canít take away from the aroma of this beer. Yes more tropical fruit on finish, but with some earthy muddiness too. Not overly bitter. Awesome aroma. Maybe the hop needs to be blended with something else to give it that bit more finish. Very drinkable though. I know I keep saying this, but please stop making beers this good will you? It spoils everything else I drink. Only joking.
