Garrold (2834) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Cunningly disguised as Centennial Simcoe. Hazy gold. Plenty of bubbly, white head. Ripe peach. Apricot. Plenty of skunky Simcoe. There’s a little damp cardboard to this one. Taste is light bitter. Some dryness. Palate is airy, and a little thin. Finish is dry, and light bitter. It’s a Kernel, so it’s good. But it’s not Kernel good.

EdKing (2201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle from brewery. Colour is orange/rusty amber, cloudy, big bubbly white head. nose is citrous fruit acidic, pine, orange marmalade, citrous rind. Taste is a big hit of citrous peel zest, which softens into a rich orange marmalade. As it lingers on the tongue the hop bitterness builds and it’s quite hop astringent, piney, resiny and prickly.
