mcberko (14644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of complex fruity notes, resinous hops, and just enough malt to back. Flavour is quite complex for an IPA, with notes of dry zesty fruity hops, biscuity malts, and some pine. Exceedingly flavourful, dry ad piney. Very drinkable. Awesome stuff.

77ships (8205) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 9, 2013
Courtesy of & thx! to tderoeck. 33 cl. bottle shared. Pours amber, little white head. Nose is light white grape (Nelson Sauvin fare), citrus, hint pine, slightly floral. Taste is white grapes, kiwi, touch pine, bitter pine resin, bark, more bitter kiwi & floral touch in the finish. Easy to drink body. Very nice, I donít really feel like the Kernel beers are all that different although they are quite good. Obviously they are all just the same beer with different hops so that make sense but even the Pale Ale & IPA series etc. donít seem to have a base which is all that different.

Bottle, Rehills, Newcastle. Big orange aroma, and the orange flavour just keeps on coming, with grapefruit and yeasty notes in there too. Subtle, balanced and up to the Kernelís high standard.

330ml bottle courtesy of mr_h. Muddy amber brown, not much head, lot of sediment. Pine hop aroma. Biscuit grapefruit hop flavour. Very smooth with sweet hoppy aftertaste. Very nice typical Kernel IPA.

Bottle via IP trade (thanks Theydon Bois). Pours a hazy amber gold body with medium white head. Aroma is fresh pine and citrus hop. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of fresh orange pulp, tropical fruits, light lemon funk, grapefruit, faint dank herb and citric hops. Very nice IPA.

ianwelby (1104) - SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Hazy amber beer. Strong citrus/grapefruit aroma and the flavour has the same qualities but with a bitter hop taste too. Quite a tangy fruit finish with a lasting bitter-sweet citrus taste.

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Cold bottle, about a month old. Two tone orange colour, cloudy. Smell is very promising - caramel, cat urine, tropical fruits. Quite mellow but complex flavour - indistinct fruits. Flavour doesnít quite live up to the smell, but itís still a really nice IPA. Some bitterness in the late aftertaste. Very clean and refreshing beer.
