The Kernel India Pale Ale Simcoe Magnum (6.9%)

I have to admit to you that I got a bit carried away smelling this beer and as a result snorted it.
It makes a very fine snuff.
The reason is this beer smells so good I just had to get closer and closer, it’s all foam sweets and fizzbombs and a big splash of mango.
There’s a boozy malt at the heart of this beer, all chest warming alcoholic biscuits, sultanas, pine nuts and honey.
The hops are snappy sherbet, crackling with spices and peach and passionfruit floral fruitiness.
It’s round and voluptuous but has sharp edges with some resinous tree sap and mandarin zest that adds an extra depth to the long dry finish.
And after my accidental experiment I can vouch for this as being a very fine beer to inhale.
