The Kernel Brewery Part 4: India Pale Ale Motueka Pacific Jade

January 6, 2013

At 7.2 per cent abv. Bottled on 10.10.12 best before 10.02.13. Aroma is very Goose Island IPA-like, sweetish tropical fruit and pine. Taste is more of the same sans sweetness. Bitter, not a soft and rounded beer but with abrupt dryness, which I think is the only clue to the higher abv compared to the previous pale ales tasted. As the beer gets warmer the pine starts to dominate. A very solid variation on a theme.
