Beer Advent Calendar - Day 24

So it is that Christmas is nearly upon us, and what sort of beer advent calendar would this be without a little visit from an old friend...

The Kernel! - Summit Chinook IPA - 7.3%

A punnet powerhouse of glorious summer fruits. Totally tropical too, juicy peaches blend with ripened mangos with just a spicing of caramel cake.. I could wax lyrical about the aroma, but it's Christmas eve and I wanna get stuck into the drink!

Plenty of juicy fruits yes but this beer also displays a fierce amount of malt and surrounding body - a beer with proper heart, not just all scented talk.. Warming alcohol and yeasty spice in the finish, it has the whole package.

What lots of IPAs wish they were!

'nuff said.
