4.25/5  rDev +8.4%

Cloudy pale amber appearance with a good head of multi sized bubbles and good lacing.

The aroma is of strong grapefruit and green hop scent. Very fresh and tropical despite the bottle being 5 months old.

The taste is very grapefruit heavy and very bitter. There's an underlying sweetness but it's blown away by the citrus hop bitterness. The aftertaste stays on the tongue for minutes after the sip and the flavour is of a beer that was made yesterday. Kernel have set the drink by date at 17/10/14 and it's the eighth of October today but this tatses fresh as a daisy.

Overall, super drinkable if you like bitterness. Very refreshing but packed with fresh hop bitterness. This could definitely be classified as an IPA but Kernel seem to reserve that designation for beers of higher abv. It's a very good and flavoursome beer.

94/100

500ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.60):
Another enjoyable beer from The Kernel, I'm struggling to think of a bad one from them with their IPA's and American pale ales always going down well. I was particularly pleased with how refreshing and tropical the beer tasted, the fact it wasn't overly strong in the alcohol department also went some way to helping it go down easily. Whilst I enjoyed it a lot I would say it fell just short of some of the previous beers from the brewery that I've picked up over the years but that's more to do with how high they've set the bar than to do with anything negative with this beer.
