Bottle at Chriso Snow Tasting, thanks to Chris, 20/01/13. Hazed mid amber with a thin bubbly white head. Nose is juicy hops, pine, citrus fruits, bitter grapefruit, orange. Taste follows, grapefruit to the fore, pine, hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter hoppy finish. Good stuff!

Bottle. Good-looking orange pour .Graprefruity resinous hop aroma with notes of biscuity malt, Sweetish fruity flavour with some cracking hop bitterness happening.The Kernel rarely disappoint. If the only beer on the planet was the Kernel and it was sold everywhere, would it be utopia? Pretty darn close I’d say.

Really, Really like this. Poise, stylish and refined. So many IPA’s (a style i love) are OTT. "Lets smash everything in there and over power the drinker with hops, they’ll never know!" Not this IPA. There isnt much of a nose but it explodes in the mouth Good body, some residual sweetness but balanced perfectly with bitter hops. Finishes with juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, mango. A great beer.

330ml bottle from Cornelius. Standard hazy amber brown Kernel IPA with not much head. Very sweet resinous hop aroma. Fruity pine hop flavour. Hoppy aftertaste. Another decent Kernel IPA.

Osprey87 (1391) - WALES - MAR 20, 2013
Jan 2013 - This is quite a nice IPA, similar to but better than, say, the Stone IPAs from California. Has a nice balance. The flavours are typical - florally grapefruitty maybe a bit more malt than I’m used to from Kernel which is good. Drinkable as new-style IPAs go. Towards the end I picked up a tiny bit of pineapple (the holy grail of IPA in my opinion) but it was only slight and fleeting

Bouteille 330 mL. Blonde legerement trouble. Nez de fruits tropicaux et agrumes. Bouche abrasive, legerement savonneuse avec une longueur forte. Amertume sur un profil qui manque de finesse.
