Draft. A hazy golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, petroleum, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, fruits, and petroleum, leading to a dry finish.

Almost clear amber beer, tidy off white head. Palate is soft and a little dry. Fine carbonation. Semi dry creamy malt, light. Sweetish hops - tangerine resin and an unusual red berry fruit vibe. Light floral tone, pine as well. Light dry finish. Overall a very interesting and sweetish IPA that doesn’t quite blow my socks off in the normal Kernel manner!

This bottle seems smoother and creamier and has lost a lot of the red berry fruits. There is smooth orange and tangerine, little peel. Traces of grapefruit and lemon. The Nelson Sauvin seems very quiet here!

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours mostly clear (scandalous!) gold, lightly effervescent, with a creamy, off-white head. Nose holds sticky pine, some onions and garlic, a bit of dry orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with balanced bitterness, some grass, juicy pine, orange rind, subtle earth tones. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with a healthy dose of resinous pine, some ripe and sticky citrus fruits, a bit of grass, mild dryness. Decent IPA though not a standout among the standard Kernel output.

Theydon_Bois (16879) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at home, from the brewery, @6.8% 17/05/13. Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head that clears to a film and bubbles. Nose is hops, light pine, orange pith, grapefruit, candyfloss. Taste comprises orange sherbet, grapefruit, earthy hops, light mineral notes, caramel, juicy mango. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitteress in the dryish finish. Decent IPA but not my favourite from Kernel.
