Benzai (9995) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (4905) - 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.

12 oz bottle sample at RBWG. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have herbal, resiny, mild plus citrus hops with pale bready malts. Dry earthy bitterness. This is a solid ipa I’m glad to have tried.

Bottle at RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice pine note, slight resin with a bit of citrus underlying and light grain. Flavor has a nice earthiness with grass and pine as well as a bit of a grain backbone.

Leighton (13942) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Kris Wines. Pours mostly clear gold, fairly effervescent with a thick, frothy off-white head. The aroma has a decent amount of melon, along with juicy orange and grapefruit, some bready malts, too. Medium sweet flavor with rounded, bready malt character, low bitterness, a bit of ripe orange, tangerine, mild pine. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Warming finish, lightly resinous with sticky pine, ripe citrus fruits, further melon, orange, underlying bready malt sugars. Quite a tasty IPA with nice, juicy hops but it doesn’t sing the way a great Kernel IPA does. Still, it’s damn drinkable and better than most IPAs out there.

33 cl bottle.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with citrus and oranges, some caramel malts, some wooden notes too. Flavor is somewhat sweet with caramel malts, not that hoppy and some grassy notes also. Bitter palate, medium carbonation. Decent but nothing special.
