sebwaw (46) - POLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Served in teku, 6.5% bottle. Creamy, robust and white head, very hazy, unclear. Color is deep orange. Aroma could be more intensive, mostly piney, some citrus, tropical fruits, no maltiness, however, sweetness is quite distinctive for some reason. Flavour is disappointing. Very one-dimensional. Earthy and raw hoppiness, but bitterness is rather low. Its rather smooth and creamy a little bit. Anyway, it seems like they got carried away with dry hopping. Nothing interesting to see here.

JohnCook101 (426) - - JUL 27, 2015
6.5% bottle. Cloudy light copper, very small off-white head that disappears swiftly. Earthy and citric aroma. Flavours of tropical fruit, pine, earth, slightly dank. Moderate sweetness, balanced bitter finish. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Really well balanced. Another great IPA from the Kernel.

skortila (4851) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
Bottled. Small sample @ Derat, Utrecht. The aroma has beautiful citrus, light pine, some grass. Clear, golden coloured beer with a nice, white, medium head. The taste is dry, clean, moderate bitter and has citrus. Very refreshing. Great stuff.

fkoolen (609) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle at home, 6,5% Nicely cloudy, murky yellow colour with a creamy white head that nicely laces the beer. Citrus fruity, grassy, piny, beautifully crisp bitterness with a slightly sticky mouthfeel, nicely malted. Bitter finish, fruity, grassy, even earthy aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Chalky and yeasty. Some marmelade and tropical fruit but Way too much yeast. Quite a disappointment.

The_Osprey (3456) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
330ml bottled 02/06/15 at 6.5%. At home on 17/07/15. Dirty dark orange, opaque and hazy, small foamy white head. Aroma is Trebor soft mints and Mentos, tangerine, sherbet, rose.

Nice IPA...just not the flavour explosion The Kernel sometimes delivers.
