The Kernel India Pale Ale 4C (7.1%)

India Pale Ale 4CI now know why this was in the running for this year’s CAMRGB Beer Of The Year Award.
4C is a superb IPA that smells of crates of clementines and warm marshmallow.
There’s a sticky, gooey, fluffy Flump thing in the malts too, as well as being chewy with toffee and crunchy with cereal bars.
And then there are the hops.
They’re sherbet coated tangerine segments, lime leaves and garden shrubbery, gunky woody resin and sharp as a tack lemon pips.
The result is that 4C has a finish that’s beautifully balanced between tongue coating oily honey sweetness and huge punch-your-lights-out dry bitterness.
Yum.
