Hazy orange- gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth, mildly dry and has decent fine minerally carbonation. Smooth malts bring a nice light creamy sweetness. A fair dose (by Kernel standards) of spicy bitterness in the mid. Smooth pine. A little lime peel into tropical fruits. Smooth finish leaves a piney linger. A little more edge to this Kernel IPA but that's not a bad thing. 3.9

This has a lost a little of it's spicy bitterness but that has allowed the HBC431 hops to open up more and show their underlying characteristics. Tropical fruits with lesser candy fruits and even a little orchard fruits. Nice cooling pine, still a little spice on the finish. Lovely stuff and for me goes to show that not all IPAs have to be drunk 10 minutes after they are bottled!

The taste is crisp, dry, Good hit of bitterness upfront, resinous, peachy, oily, orange marmalade, grapefruit burp, resin, pine, earth, bit of spice and damp grass with a drying finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty robust and flavoursome. Good stuff.
