Bottled 27/02/13. An orange coloured beer with an off-white pool of head. Typical sharp Kernel hoppiness throughout. Tropical fruits. Not the freshest so the malts are sweetening. Flavoursome strong and long. Svesse (8577) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2012
(Bottle) Golden amber colour with huge, frothy, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, hoppy nose with apricots, tropical fruit, passion-fruit, slightly grainy malt and floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of apricots, tropical fruit, citrus peel and generous doses of floral/citric hops in a finish with a fairly balanced (with Kernel measures) bitterness. Medium body, with a balanced sweetness. Nice one. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2012
Quite a foamy beer, orangy coloured and rocky white bubbly head. Very fresh nose, herbal, pineapple and flowery even. But also some toffee, darker tones. After a somewhat nondescript start a proper bitterness kicks in. Foamy mouth feel, which is something I didn’t expect. Don’t get the alcohol much; maybe a bit too thin to carry all those hops. Well developed dry end. Decent but they do better IPAs. (33cl bottle, traded with Leighton; thanks!) jonno (2751) - JAPAN - DEC 30, 2011
Dense nose - very ’compact’. Grapefruit and caramel are the main offenders. Big bitterness and solid body. Long finish. A bit of pineapple and honey in the finish. Good more than solid stuff. Cheers Tim and Nate! Cunningham (7860) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle at a tutored tasting GBBF 2011. Hazy golden colour with a nice white head. Grape nose. Grape and fruity flavour.
