Less pine resin than some of the other pales, plenty tropical, a middle mouth section of sweet malt biscuit and a lingering astringency. Standard kernel, i.e. very nice. madmitch76 (25291) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013

Very hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and semi dry, slightly soft. Fine minerally carbonation. Nice orange and grapefruit peel hops .Balanced by sweeter lime and floral things. Some pithy bitterness kicks in. Finishes semi dry with more citrus peel bitterness. Nice complex PA.
Kernel pales rarely match their IPAs. Meaty fences, better than their modern day flimsy counterparts. gunnar (9390) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2013

I like smoke. I like meat. I like Jimi. But I like them in my house, not floating over from next door. I’m hot and grouchy. Kernel helping. Thank you. (I’d like to point out that meat is not physically floating over the fence from next door. You knew that? Good, carry on then.

Bottle. Hazy gold with an off white foam. Aromas are biscuit and pineapple with bready toast and floral notes. Low pine with gooseberry and hints of honey. Flavours are sweet mixed tropical fruit with woody pine notes and spices. Bitter grapefruit with oranges. Nice yeastiness with herbal aspects. Very good. mR_fr0g (13155) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2013

The taste is earthy, pine, crisp, light toast, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, hay and bitter-sweet aspect with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, fruity and pretty delicious.
