Dirty blonde with chill haze and a finger of off white froth.
Lemon Italian ice, fresh hopsack and more than a bit of herbal chronik on the nose.
Granary loaf, soft peach and tangerine, then every citrus south of grapefruit in the hop finish.
Lemonade ending and growing oil with a gently bitter edge on the linger.
Round, creamy, soft.

9.25 bottling date, so should still be pretty darn skippy 9 weeks out.

And so it is. Given the hop bill, I'd expect citrus, but I'd never think it would be so gentle - Citra doesn't bring grapefruit pith, and no dank or onions off the Summit. I can also get a touch of Galaxy passionfruit. As threatening as a kitten and as easy to love. Loses just a notch for being a bit thin.

Kernel is reaching a Founders level of consistent excellence.
