3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Crown and Anchor. Slightly hazy pale orange. White head barely there, nice lacing. Really perfumy, candy aroma. Full mouthfeel. Taste is hops, bitterness and fake chocolate candy alongside a little maltiness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, from the brewery, 14/05/13.
Hazed dark orange/murky amber with a thin white head.
Nose is bitter tropical fruits, dank orange, grapefruit, mango, light glue notes, caramel, hops, slight burnt/sour tropical fruit tones.
Taste comprises bitter orange, grapefruit, hops, light pine, sugars.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish.
This was a real bitter number, drinkable stuff, but lower down the pecking order of Kernel APA’s for me!

Backlog rate. Bready, chunky, hoppy pale ale, not as many fruit notes as other Kernel pales and IPAs but still superior!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy orange brown with a large fluffy foam. Aromas are soft sliced oranges with creamy oak barrel and low woody, floral pine. Caramel with bready yeast and pepper. Herbal with toast and apricot. Flavours are sweet yet mellow citrus fruit with a woody dryness. Spicy on the palate with honey and lemon lozenges with caramel. Dry and earthy on the finish with low bitterness and spruce. Another good profile of a hop.
