foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle conditioned from Joneso. Cloudy orange with a big, fat aroma of grapefruit, cocoa and orange. Some cerealiness too. Taste has the expected bitter grapefruit but the bitterness is short; not so complex as other Kernels. I like.

Keg Tapped Leeds 07/01/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head. Beautiful peach and tropical fruit notes in the nose. These same hoppy elements in the mouth with a dry biscuit flavour. Carbonation is well done. Drinkability is spot on for a keg beer. Tasty and well brewed. Good depth of flavour. Very enjoyable.

Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours cloudy copper with a huge off white head. Aroma is very fruity, pineapple, tropical fruits, grassy and caramel. Taste is moderate bitter and light to moderate sweet. Creamy. Full bodied with average carbonation. Awesome IPA.

330ml bottle from The Good Spirits Co. Light medium brown, not much head, a bit flat. Biscuit resin grain hop aroma. Leafy grainy resin hop flavour. Resin citrus aftertaste. Decent Kernel IPA.

hazy deep amber beer with a good off white head. Light passion fruit on the nose. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Smooth light malt base. Hops appear to be Mosaic dominated with passion fruit coming through strong. Lesser orange and orange peel. Little hop spice. Crisp finish with a minty aftertaste. Very nice!

Niall73 (1384) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2013
Tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a hazy straw colour with a white head. Great aroma - floral, fruity, slightly funky. Medium to light body, fairly mild carbonation. Nice - crisp initially, yet caramelly, marmaladey, funky, boozy. Complex, with a lot of depth. Good bitter tonic finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3005) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2013
Tap at the brewery. A dull orange pour with a firm white head leaving great lacing. This is a pretty heavy and sticky nose - pine, heavy dank, grapefruit, grass. A big malt backing to hold the overwhelming hops in this. Loads of dank and grassy hops, pine, light lemon, lemon rind, grapefruit on the finish. Solid
