Bottle from Mr Lawrence, Brockley. Hazy orange pour with a lingering white head. Fabulous tropical fruit bowl aroma that’s up there with the very best. Piney resinous hop, weed, citrus aplenty, a little sweetness. A little sniff of heaven if there ever was one. The flavour lived up to the infinite promise shown in the nose. More juicy citrus mingled with some balancing malts and superb hoppage. Bitterness spot on and drinkibality just off the scale. Refreshing and hugely satisfying. Quite simply this beer is the bomb, and my favourite offering thus far from the Kernel. World-beating stuff.

Bottle@Desverger, Copenhagen. Pours golden with a white head with persistent lacing. Fresh fruity citrus and tropical aroma and taste, prominent grapefruit, peachy, mandarin and lemon, some pine and grassy nuances throughout. Gorgeous.

flipo (8) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 26, 2015 does not count
Unbelieveble beer. Gold color. Aroma is amazing, full of citruses and little bit hop. Medium body and very very well balanced. Taste is like a citruses bomb. At the end bitter from hop. Very, very, very good drinkable.

AdiBeer (1986) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma: tropical fruits, mango, peaches, some citrus fruits. Appearance: pale, hazy, gold, small, frothy, white beer. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets intensify, very juicy tropical fruits, some grain malts, turns lightly dry in the finish, very soft carbonation. Overall: very nice IPA, yet I was expecting a bit more, solid Kernel-quality, but is it their best IPA, not for me. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath.

GlasgowTAD (479) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy dark yellow with a shortlived head which becomes a frothy layer quickly. Aroma is earthy, grassy, sprucey, citrusy and slightly floral - so fecken dank I may add it could alley-oop whilst doing a backflip. Taste is characteristically the same as the aroma - earthy, grassy, slightly orange citrussy and not very bitter. Very rich in both taste and aroma, once it coats your mouth the juice just stays there. Full bodied and very easy to drink.

jzi (61) - POLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Wygląd: Drobno i średnio ziarnista piana. Biała, kremowa. Dość niska i powoli opada. Zostawia duży lacing. Barwa piwa - ciemna miedź, bardzo zmętnione, błotniste. Duży drożdżowy osad. Aromat: sosna, cytrusy, orzeszki. Zdecydowanie dominują cytrusy. Smak: cytrusowo-leśnie. Mocna goryczka, w pierwszej chwili tak intensywna że aż cofa język. Po kilku łykach robi się bardzo przyjemna. Lekka słodowość, słodki finisz. Dość treściwe, ale bardzo pijalne. Super.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. Pours a cloudy yellow with small off white head. The aroma is fruity hop and citra. Medium mouth, tropical fruit, citrus, pine, light bitter finish, very impressive.
