Bottle at home, from Ales By Mail, 05/11/13. Pours lightly (by Kernel standards) hazed orange amber with a thiniish off white covering. Nose is earthy hops, mandarin, peach, toasted malts. Taste comprises mandarin, light pine, grassy, orange pith, mineral bite. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the finale. Solid APA but not Kernels finest, great drinkable affair none the less.
