3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 50cl bottle. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Carbonation is very soft. Aromas of lime and gooseberry. The taste has that characteristic Kernel malt character - quite biscuity and sweet. Plenty of brisk bitterness with a pleasant zesty, grapefruity finish. A very pleasant IPA with all those American hop flavours. Well balanced and a satisfactory alcohol strength to give a good mouth-filling quality. A very nice pale ale.

Citrus smell & taste - lemons & limes with some bubble gum undertones. The finish is long & sharp. A lovely hop - let's hope it gets a name & goes mainstream soon!

Draught at the Euston Tap, London on 28 March 2014. Poured a cloudy golden colour, with a thin, white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, lemon sherbet and straw. Interesting flavour profile; very juicy tropical fruits, mango and bready malt. Finish was building dryness from the hops, with some sweet malty balance.
