Columbus, Cascade, Bravo version. Hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy, slightly soft. Creamy malt, llght. Lovely fresh hops - flavoursome but not too bitter. A little fresh orange. Mild floral notes and tropical fruits with mango most noticeable. Mellow hop skunk. Subtle lemon tang underneath. Very Kernel like and that is high praise!
330ml bottle from Ales by Mailjamestulloch (4261) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Bottled 15.12.12 BBE 15.4.13 - Pours dark orange with a medium foamy and bubbly head. Aroma of fresh exotic fruits, hints of berries, caramel, toffee and grassy hops. Taste is sweetish, malty and slightly fruity with hints of exotic fruits, caramel and grass. Finish is hoppy, grassy and malty with some caramely sweetness and fruitness. Okay, quite malty IPA, not quite as fruity as you would expect from the sweet aroma.
Aroma: Dry, dusty hops with a stunning aroma of orange, lime and light caramel.
evergreen0199 (3460) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Appearance: Murky amber body with a thick off-white head. Excellent lacing.
Taste: Lovely clean flavours of citrus, pine, yeast and caramel. It tastes Kernel-esque, so I wasn’t surprised to learn that they brewed using Kernel’s kit. The bottle I’m drinking from says 6.9%. There’s barely a hint of the alcohol at all; this is very easy drinking. Lingering bitterness.
Palate: Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: The first beer I’ve had from this brewery - and it definitely won’t be the last. An excellent yeasty, hoppy IPA with a cool label, too. If I have one criticism (and it’s not easy to find one) I think this beer would be perfect if it had slightly more malt character.

Bottle, pours red brown, aroma of orange, grapefruit marmalade, nice tangy sweetness before a solid long bitterness comes through. Nice aftertaste. Crisp & refreshing.

Bottle at the brewery. Lemon zest aroma. Nice chewy palete. Chalky bite at the end. Soft but firm bitterness. DanielBrown (4528) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle at the Victoria, Birmingham. Poured a beautiful hazy golden with a sticking white roof. Wow - boom. Maybe ’boom’ is going a bit far, but this was certainly a delicious beer as far as moi is concerned (which I am). Proper lengthy hops which coat the tongue and throat. Zinging flavours, super balance. The taste grows and grows. RichTheVillan (8110) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle at The Victoria; clear amber pour with frothy white head, big hop aroma, clean fresh hop taste, resinous mouthfeel very good IPA really like Partizan.
