(Drank only 3 weeks from ’bottled on’ date, brought direct from the brewery) The aroma is mostly passionfruit, honey and cream. Similar to a solero ice cream. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel with low carbonation. Not much head or lacing. Taste is tropical fruit, spice and a little clove. There is a nice bitterness on the top of the throat, with a balanced warmth from the alcohol. Absolutely beautiful IPA!

evergreen0199 (1925) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle from realale.com shop on Richmond Road, Twickenham. A hazy golden coloured pour with a medium off white lasting head on top. Great fresh hoppy, citrus, grapefruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit, grapefruit, slight tropical fruit, pine. Smooth and so damn drinkable, usual top quality IPA from Kernel. Need to get me some more of this beauty.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, bright gold, lightly effervescent with a soft, fluffy white head. Inviting aroma of ripe citrus, tangy orange, pineapple, some dry pine. Medium sweet flavor, some further tangy citrus fruits, honey, melon, some mild bread, faint pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with mild resinous pine, soft honey and caramelized sugar sweetness, jammy fruits, citrus, melon. Tasty IPA.

rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2012
Somewhat hazy golden beer with a decent lasting offwhite head. Hoppy leather aroma, citrus, grapefruit, yeasty notes, lemongrass, floral notes, some bread, some pears. Hoppy flavor, lemongrass, grapefruit, citrus, orange peels, leather notes, floral, some herbal notes. Good beer but not the best IPA this brewery has made.
