Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Palate is quite creamy soft, fine carbonation. Creamy malt. Minerally mild orange with a slight green hop feel. Trace of peach. Finishes semi dry with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Very nice IPA but a couple of points short of the usual Kernel wow factor.

harrisoni (13743) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2011
33cl bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras Station. Hazy copper colour with thin beige head. Hop aroma explodes out of the bottle and on the pour. Lovely intense Amarillo hop aroma. Touch of toffee in the mouth. Hops remain throughout with some bitterness on the finish. Its a decent little IPA. Maybe not as great as some of this brewerys other beers as they set such a high standard. But still good. Tasty

Leighton (11034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours a clear, rich amber with a fluffy, white head. Aroma is full pine, grapefruit and orange citrus, fresh grass. Flavor is about as good as it gets. Fully realized, strong malt foundation, some honey and sugar, quite bitter, thick and juicy citrus and resinous pine. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Finishes sticky with hops and beautifully balanced. There is a touch of warmth but otherwise the alcohol only gives this beer body; you hardly know it’s there. Some lingering pine, toasty malt sweetness, hints of wood and grass. This is one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 25, 2013
Der hopfige Antrunk ist eher dunkel und behäbig. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier deutlich spritziger, die Hopfigkeit heller. Volle Hopfigkeit, leicht getreidig, zum Ende grasiger und zum ersten Mal bitter. Blumig, lang anhaltender Nachgeschmack. Gut! 8/9/11/13/12/11
