JohnRMurdoch (3171) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2013
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.

TimE (3092) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2013
Light amber golden color. Pineapples, pears, like a fruit cup of hops. Tons of hops, again well defined hop character that is a fruit cup, but really lacks a backbone. Not bad, but I could use more malt.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2013
Bottled. Deep orange-golden color, lacy. Minerally, grapefruit zest nose, with honey and biscuits. Sweet, juict grapefruit flavor, tropical fruits and pineapple, tingly peppery finish. Nice fruit. A bit thin and light.

jonno (2231) - JAPAN - JAN 19, 2013
Big apricot and citrus nose. Big and fruity with a full body. Hides ABV pretty well really. Some passionfruit, grapefruit and toffee. Dolid stuff.

Aniela (2305) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden beer with a small offwhite head. Malty, yeasty aroma with leather notes. Floral and fruity flavour.

Osprey87 (1367) - 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

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.
