3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mr Lawrence, Brockley. Shared with Slothez. Good looking hazy orange pour with a mid sized white head. Plenty of fragrant hop and juicy citrus fruit in the nose. Superb fruity notes of grapefruit and passionfruit in the flavour alongside some well balanced hop bitterness. Dryish finish. A very tasty and super drinkable hop combo. Great stuff again from the Kernel. .

Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate, a little crisp and a little dry. Pale malt is quite noticeable at the start. Then grapey Nelson which contrast nicely with the mild orange citrus of the cascade. Semi dry finish with some minerals.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London, sourced from City Beverage Company. Pours the usual cloudy, orange-gold with a medium, frothy white head. Dusty citrus hop aroma with bits of wood and pine. Good flavor, nice balance, some moderate and crispy malts, pithy citrus, fairly mild bitterness. Medium bodied with average and smooth carbonation. Lightly drying finish, some pine needles, tangy citrus, faint sugars. Really drinkable overall. Could stand to be a touch sweeter, but this still has a nice balance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from from The Kernel brewery. Colour is great. Cloudy pale orange. They get this so right at The Kernel. Nose is subtle. Tangerine, orange and that Nelson Sauvin earthiness/minerally smell, like rain on tarmac. Taste is orange, tangerine, minerally, rain on tarmac. Not too much in the finish but it’s nicely balanced.
