4/5  rDev +1.8%

My bottle is 5.3% ABV. Bottled 07/08/14.

A: Peachy orange with a fluffy white head. Great lacing.
S: Tropical fruit and something else like roasted cumin (no, really!).
T: It's an American pale ale that checks the tropical and citrus boxes (namely mango and orange). The other half of its character is a strong Paracetamol sort of quality, or something saltier like Alka-Seltzer. Grapefruit in the finish, and did I just get some chocolate? As it warms there's some sporadic toasty malt. It's a pretty dry beer.
M: Lightish with a nice soft effervesence.
O: Almost three months old this bottle but to be honest, with this flavour profile I'm not sure I'd want to drink it fresh. It's one for hop geeks but not my cup of tea.

50 cl Bottle poured into my lost abbey stemware glass

Pours a slightly hazy, light golden colour with a fair white head. Lovely hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple, passion fruit and caramel. Similar resinous hop flavours of pineapple, mango and caramel again.
Nice and dry with moderate carbonation.

3.8/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 500ml bottle (brewery purchase) into an English pint glass to a slightly hazy golden colour with tinges of brown coming through and a large bubbly beige head.

Tropical fruit ... thinking mango and graperuit, on the nose allied to pine, wood and a little malt.

Taste wise, hops, citrus, pine needles, grassy/straw - slightly earthy and veering off towards a slightly sour/bitter flavour (almost saision like in some respects!)

Mouthfeel was medium in body, moderate in carbonation leading to a dry, slighty sour finish.

Overall I would drink this beer again, but I'm not totally convinced by it (as I am most easily by the vast majority of Kernel products).

Not the typical finish you'd expect from a pale ale!
