Not my favourite Kernel. Hazy gold, tropical fruits, better aroma than flavour, quite a sharp bitterness at back of the tongue.

RichTheVillan (2897) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy amber pour with big off white head, tropical fruit aroma, plenty of citrus and pine in the taste, decent bitter finish.

chimpgibbon (308) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle at Hawksmoor Spitalfields. What can you say? Possibly one of the best Kernel pales yet. Funky as hell and I’ll stick my neck out and say cheesy as hell even if Evin doesn’t get that analogy. Top banana.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Keg at Craft Beer Clerko, 22/10/13. Orange amber with a decent sized off white head. Nose is jammy tropicals, bitter orange, mango lassi, grapefruit, pine resin. Taste comprises orange pith, jammy apricot, grass, grapefruit, light pine notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, balanced hop bitterness in the finish. Uber-Solid Kernel IPA.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Keg at the brewery - Bermondsey, London. Pours cloudy gold with a fine, foamy white head. Super solid IPA, lots of dank citrus, pee, sticky pine. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sticky, resinous on the finish with lots of juicy citrus. Lovely.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras drunk at home. Hazy amber coloured lasting white head. Good tropical fruit aroma. Some toffee. I mean I love Kernel IPAs but I wouldn’t say that this is one of the best. Bitterness is a little metallic on the finish. Soft in the mouth. Some ok tropical fruit and tangerine. Hmm, don’t know if it’s the beer or me. Nice enough, but it doesn’t quite sing like some of the IPAs from Kernel. Good marmalade though.

Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Keg at Lyric Soho. It pours hazy pale golden with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, hay, orange, grapefruit and sherbet. The taste is crisp, orange rind, tangerine, sherbet, minerals, leaf, light grass and earthy bitterness with a bitter, citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Tasty, well-balanced and highly drinkable. Great stuff!
