4.08/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

330ml bottle from Oddbins, London Bridge (£2.95):
Amber brown with a thumb sized, foamy white head that holds great, leaving some lacing on the glass too.

Fruity to begin and with some bitter notes & grapefruit/pine. Lots of tropical fruit notes with some citrus & mango with orange at the end.

Mildly bitter with tropical fruits & some of the grapefruit. Slightly floral aroma with fresh hops, some mango & a little pineapple; refreshing stuff.

Medium body & carbonation with a moderately bitter taste that hides the alcohol quite well and helps the beer go down easy. The palate is a refreshing one and the beer has a good balance too.

Very nice stuff as always from The Kernel with a great mix of bitter pine hops and the tropical/citrus fruits throughout with some sweetness too; definitely one I'd try again.

4.48/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle (bottled Aug 10, 2013) into a pint glass, yellow orange amber with a short white head that dissipates leaving some small lacing, quite cloudy

S: lovely citrus hop aroma, grapefruit, lemon, orange, sweet fruity, pineapple, mango

T: strong bitterness of grapefruit peel up front, sweetens with flavors of fruit salad, pineapple, mango, papaya, finish returns to a lasting citrus dryness

M: high carbonation with a lively mouthfeel, no alcohol noted, medium bodied

O: ugly like a homebrew but amazing American West Coast IPA flavors, all of the excellent flavor profile and aroma of a world class DIPA with a lower alcohol content and gravity of an IPA, one of a few IPAs with no pine hop flavors only fruit, I'll probably never get this again but this is very memorable
