Red grapefruit juice aroma with earthy hops and a very mild caramel. Hazy orange appearance. Taste starts with a strong citrus and grapefruit flavor. A cinnamon and caramel malt hits the middle of the mouth. Grapefruit juice and bitter earthy hops linger in the after taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange color with a defined and sticky foam head. The aroma reminds me of a bag of dank hops from a homebrew supply shop. It is very citrus and tropical. There is also a spicy character to this brew with pine notes. As for tasting, it is more sweet than what I expected with a sharp booze intensity. There is flavors of tangerine citrus, soft caramel, bread, with a medium to heavy bitterness. This brew has a good full body to it. As for the finish it grew on me. Its a rollercoaster of flavor and did not linger much after I got used to the brew. Also my palate was not annihilated like I presumed it might become after my first sip. Overall a very good double. I would have enjoyed the flavors more if the booze was not so forceful.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very bright and cloudy orange in color with a thinner white head. The aroma has a big kick of grapefruit to it, along with some heavy pineapple, apricot, and orange. The taste is mildly bitter and is more on the sweet side. There is strong grapefruit and pine up front, extending into caramel, apricot, pineapple, and a candy flavor that comes through most at the end. The aftertaste is a long lasting sweet candy and pineapple. This is medium bodied, has a full texture, and is about average in carbonation. This is a good beer, although the sweetness gets to you the more you drink it. I’d rate this a few points higher if it was less so.

A solidly average iipa. I of course wished for more. Sweet. Some hop aroma and taste but nothing distinct. Just a hodge podge. Ok

Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop; hazy light copper pour with a big frothy beige head, hop aroma leaps out on the pour, tangerine, pineapple a bit of a medley, taste starts off with grapefruit, light caramel, hint of pine, hop fireworks on your tongue, this tastes fresher than the other beers I’ve had from MK shop tonight, has that vibrant hop action, some tangerine background spice, strong beer but so drinkable, definite malt backbone, grapefruit bitterness, still prefer the Kernel I salute you sir, keep buying those new world hops
