spacecube (1822) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
Pours hazy orange / red with a small head. Average carbonation and some sediment in the pour. Nice juicy fruity aroma, mango & passion fruit with the sort of sweet, puckery texture and flavour from the amarillo hop. Nice, solid singe hop IPA. This bottle 6.3% and 6 weeks old.

Theydon_Bois (21887) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Tap at the brewery, 30/03/13. Hazed golden with a thin white head that clears to the edge and forms a film. Nose carries juicy hop notes, mango, pine, grapefruit, citrus. Taste comprises jammy fruit, hops, orange, grapefruit, pine, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, bitterness in the finish. Decent as expected.

jamestulloch (4471) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Aroma: Pungent aroma of caramel and pineapple.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Light carbonation. Light lacing.

Taste: Quite sweet for an IPA. Strong caramel flavour with hoppy bitterness to balance it.

Palate: Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation fizz.

Overall: A very good IPA but not particularly distinctive or memorable.

dantheman278 (1365) - SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2013
Keg at Bat. Slight haze, golden yellow, no head. Big passion fruit, lychee nose. Touch of pine resin. Beautifully balanced, honeyed fruits and lovely sweet resinous pine with a persistent lemony bitterness and classic Kernel minerality. Light but oily mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Nice passion fruit smell be a bit too weak, very light. A nice beer but nothing to blow you away.

3.3
Koelschtrinker (22514) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 25, 2013
Der hopfige Antrunk ist eher dunkel und behäbig. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier deutlich spritziger, die Hopfigkeit heller. Volle Hopfigkeit, leicht getreidig, zum Ende grasiger und zum ersten Mal bitter. Blumig, lang anhaltender Nachgeschmack. Gut! 8/9/11/13/12/11

3.8
Scopey (16562) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle at the kernel brewery. It pours hazy orange-amber with a thick white head. The nose is fresh pine, varnish, sweet orange, earth, light spice and sherbet. The taste is bitter pine, resin, zesty orange, tangerine, peppery edge and mineral aspect with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Flavoursome and well balanced. Very drinkable hop juice.

3.8
NonOperational (60) - ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Enjoyed this a lot. Pretty extreme stuff but still balanced. Aroma mainly of sweat, also mangos. Very silky, oily palate with minimal carbonation. Initial harsh resin & earwax quickly becomes lychee softness, gooseberry lingering long. 2 month-old bottle.
