javiercrasher (219) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 2, 2013
Ambarina, turbia, con algo de sedimento. Buena espuma blanca que aunque tiende a desaparecer deja mancha. Aromas cítricos y a pino. Cuerpo medio y moderada carbonatación. En boca pino, hierba, cítricos y amargor floral. Regusto amargo y alcohol bien integrado. Con el frescor característico de las cervezas de The Kernel.

Hazy straw IPA with a thin head. Hoppy aroma and flavour is strong hop and a citric edge. Too strong for how nice it is!

Tisztára olyan színe van, mint egy frissen facsart, rostos narancslének. Sűrű, átláthatatlan, habja közepes méretű, tejhabszerű, krémes és közepesen kitartó. Olyan illata van, mintha egy frissen kinyitott komlózsákba szagolnánk bele, nincs benne semmi zavaró mellékaroma, egy kevéske élesztőn kívül. Íze is olyan, mintha egy friss komlótobozt rágcsálnánk el, ami citrusos, igen gyantás, kellemesen , de határozottan keserű. Elég sűrű, de mégsem túl testes, mérsékelten buborékos, abból is az apró, pezsgőszerű van benne. Utóíze igen keserű, fenyőgyantás és száraz. Én még ilyen "igazi" friss komlós ipát nem is ittam, fantasztikus!

caesar (5794) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2015 Tap @ DDDH, medium sample. Slight hazy golden color, short head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrus, bit grassy, slight flowery. Medium bitter in taste, but very smooth. Again a nice combination of grassy, citrussy and flowery notes. Perfectly balanced as most Kernel IPAs. Wonderful stuff. Upping the score to 4.3 Bottled. Almost clear golden color, short off-white head. Huge hoppy aroma, citrus, grassy, some malt. Firm bitter taste. Clean american style IPA. Really strong in bitterness, almost astringent, backed up with some maltiness. Bitterness lingers on in the finish. It’s very one-dimensional, but it is pretty perfect for what it is. Classic IPA. 3.9

On tap @ Drie Dorstige Herten. 25cl sample. The aroma has flowers,loads of tropical fruits, some biscuit malt tones. Bit hazy, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is ligh-moderate bitter, very flavourfull. Great hops. Nice dry and clean.

Cunningham (5632) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2015
Cloudy orange golden color with a fine thick white head. Lovely lacing. Just a perfect start. Grapefruit hoppy, pine and tropical fruity aroma. I love it. Medium to full body. Silk smooth texture. Nice balanced sweetness versus bitterness. Grapefruit hoppy, biscuits, pine and tropical fruity in a perfect blend. What a lovely IPA! Spot on.

Leighton (13955) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy, matte gold with a billowing, white head. Strong hop aroma with pine, citrus and some mild caramel malts. Lightly sweet flavor to start with honey and caramel, then pronounced bitterness takes hold with notes of orange juice, pine sap, earth and citrus zest. Medium bodied with average carbonation and light resin. Doesn’t have that enamel-ripping hop bite, which is kind of nice. Finishes mostly bitter with nice earth and citrus, along with light malty sugar. Excellent IPA.

Countbeer (5306) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle: 7.2%ABV. Medium sized, bit airy on top and vast beneath, slowly changing, creamy foamy head on top of a murky yellow orange colored beer. Aromas of crispy fruit tones like peach, apricot, moss, earth, red fruit like strawberry, mushroom, some creamy herbs and vanilla. Flavours of peach, cream, apricot, mango, pine apple, some grapefruit, some hop bitters, some malty chalk, hint of floral, crispy fruit with a light bitter tone. Sorry don’ t wanna write more because it just damn tasty! Aftertaste is more bitter than in the taste itself with a good fruit and floral tone. Very nice. Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, very good medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy texture. Balanced and damn tasty. The interesting thing is, the hops are not really to be tasted, it’s good (hop) fruity at the start and floral fruity at the end. Thank you Kernel brewery!
