Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2013
33cl bottle (pretty fresh). Pours hazy orange - big fluffy white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is juicy mandarin orange, pine needles, light citrus, grapefruit and a nice juicy hit of mango. Taste follows suit with lots of sweet tropical fruit character mixed with a hit of bitter oily pine resin and a lasting grapefruit/pine bitterness. Touch of light caramel in the background - hops doing all the work here thankfully. Medium mouthfeel and med/dry finish (although a touch of the sweet mandarin hits you in the finish too). Thoroughly drinkable - great IPA.

33cl bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Hazy dirty brown orange with lasting thin beige head. Good aroma of lime, tangerine and pepper. Nice and full in mouth. Balanced. Good bitterness beautiful fruit all the way through. One of the best balanced of the Kernel beers I’ve had for a bit. Yep, that’s really pretty good. Delicious in fact.

Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit, grapefruit, slight tropical fruit, pine. Smooth and so damn drinkable, usual top quality IPA from Kernel. Need to get me some more of this beauty.
