jerd16 (180) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Pours amber with small frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, sweet tangerine, resinous pine and some sweet malt. Familiar cascade feel, fairly bold but nothing extraordinary. Taste is sweet at first, offering sweet citrus and caramel malt before some juicy grapefruit pith takes hold and leads the beer to a rambunctious pithy-bitter finish. My one grievance is that for a Kernel beer it seems slightly watery. Maybe I have just been spoiled by a seemingly infallible Kernel-creamy body present in all their previous beers.

Hermod (3001) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2014
33cl bottle from AbM. Bottled: 17.12.13. Pours golden in color with a lacing, frothy white head. Aroma has tropical fruits , pineapples quite strong, some gooseberries and floral notes. Flavor has that same tropical punch, pineapples, oranges, hopjuice. Finishes bitter and fruity. Surprisingly thin body for this ABV. Refreshing and easy to drink for sure. Expected more though, feels almost watered out some how flavorwise. Or is it just me being too accostumed to topnotch IPA:s from this great brewery.

rosenbergh (6474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
330 ml bottle. Bottled on 17/12/13. BB 17/04/14. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Cloudy amber colour with a tiny frothy white head. Fresh hoppy aroma of tropical fruits and mandarin. The flavour is hops, some tropical fruits, orange, mandarin, mild bitterness and some malty sweetness. Very fresh and clean flavour. Nice. 6.9% is very nicely (dangerously) hidden. Pouring yeast brings malty and bready notes.

RichardW (1448) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle Rehills Ncl. Light grapefruit and satsuma aroma, nice soft spicy bitterness, with earthy notes and a pleasant yeasty finish. There’s some creamy hints, really enjoyable and a great single hop IPA.

DanielBrown (3697) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle from Craven Arms, Birmingham. Cloudy gold. In smell and mouth taste, this is a slightly dusty and sweet hoppy tasted beast. A small beast really. Proficient, rather than essential.

dmac (3877) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at RBWG GT. Poured an uglier light gold body under a foamy white head. Aroma and flavor of earth, toast, dirty citrus and orange. Fuller bodied with strong carbonation. Meh to ok.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Benzai (7215) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle @ home. Hazy orange color, medium sized white to off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts and nice cascade hoppyness. Taste malts, hops, nicely bitter. Not as hoppy and fruity as I had expected. Still nice though.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average, thick, forthy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Citrusy hop aroma, notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, biscuity malt basis. Taste is minimally sweet biscuity malty, citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of lemon, grapefruit, a touch of orange, slightly biting, spicy bitter hoppy. Maybe not the epitome of Kernel - but a perfect example to see what all their APAs and IPAs are about.
