Bottle from a trade with madmitch76. Pours light hazed golden with a big creamy white head.Aroma is fruity, orange, lemon with some herbs and spice. Taste is moderate fruity, light bitter fresh tangerine, some nice citrussy notes at the end. Not exactly an eye opener, more a straight forward beer by Kernel. Good enough for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como; bottled 03.11.12, bb 03.03.13
Amber color, clean, with medium sized compact head. Nice aroma, fruity hops, the lovely fruity resins from the Simcoe with a more earthy touch from the Cascade. Dry mouthfeel, with dry toffee flavor, light caramel, but also some cereals and paper; nice bitterness level, with good fruity presence and soft resins.
Pleasant and easily drinkable, good hop showcase. It could be more stylish with more crispness and less paper.

Ottima, agrumata e con un amaro elegante. Molto bevibile, anche se mi secca un poí la lingua...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Bright, tropical fruit aroma.
Appearance: Slightly hazy orange body. Very small white head, no carbonation. Light lacing marks.
Taste: Freshly cut oranges with a hint of lime. Light and very tasty. Not as complex as other Kernel IPAs, but very drinkable.
Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Kernel are the masters of the IPA. This isnít their best, bit itís still delicious.

Tap at the brewery. Usual look of Kernel beers. Aroma is grainy, lemon citrus. Taste is very nice citrus hoppiness and also a bit creamy. Orangey and touch of biscuity malt. Very nice and easy drinking.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 28th December 2012
Hazy orange amber beer, good white head. Palate is light and semi dry and a little crisp. Mild minerals. Mild creamy malt. A little pithy orange and tangerine. Touch of floralness. Whisper of skunk, lemon and grapefruit. Finishes neutral with mild bitter linger. A nice Pale Ale - perhaps slightly muted by Kernel standards. 3.7.

This has developed a little - slightly more forward in itís fruits and better integrated. Snow cooled and very refreshing!
