jinroh (624) - ESTONIA - APR 19, 2015
Pours nicely hazy orange. Bit of foam. Aroma is quite fruity, mango, passion fruit. Taste has some hop bitterness, drier than I expected, somehow really drying. Good and sessionable. Kernel always delivers that.

TBone (13449) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from ABM (as "Galaxy Mosaic Citra")
Murky deep yellow color, decent white head. Lots of citrus and grassberry bush in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lots of citrus from citra, tropical fruits, gooseberry. Quite standard solid Kernel from good hops. Maybe slightly yeasty.

Beersiveknown (3630) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottle at home from ales by mail
hazy mid amber blonde with pale beige head collapsing to lacing. Peach and mango on nose, full bodied, gentle carbonation, citrussy, touch of grapefruit pith, dry finish. No sign of mosaic but goes down easily for 7%

McNeillR (1576) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2015
Light but firm murky golden and very soft film with decent white ring. Neat cereal and registers seedy passionfruit, chunks of mango and floral muffins. Tinny citrus to kick things off, peerless tropical fruit soft sweetness and a bit of minerally bitterness. Chewy orangey pith. Not overblown carbonation and soft brassy gleam on the mouthfeel. Fairly presidential fleshy grapefruit finish and a rattle of bitterness on the linger, daubs of sherbert and stroking tight citrus. I nearly kissed this one.

Bottle, Beets, Leith

Aroma: intense tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit. Appearance: hazy, pale, dark yellow, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: light bitters coming up, tropical sweets remaining in the back, dry, bitter finish. Overall: another fantastic IPA from The Kernel, typical aroma and palate. Bottle from the brewery, Bermondsey.

Scopey (8249) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
Keg at Kernel. It pours cloudy dirty gold with a decent white head. The nose is sweet, juicy, tropical fruits, doughy, mango, passion fruit and apricot. The taste is bitter, earthy, grapefruit, orange rind, pepper, orange chewits, guava, straw and pepper with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Great aroma and don’t taste bad either! Good stuff.
