mR_fr0g (3130) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle at home from Beer:Shop St Albans. Aroma is big tropical citrus fruits, splash of sharp lemon, orange skin, lychee. Nice golden orange coloured pour with a lasting fluffy white head. Light haze. Flavour is rounded citrus, orange, light grainy base malt, touch of hoppy resin on the tongue. Some lingering light grassy, and big tropical fruit notes Body is medium full, decent dryish finish. Packs is nice assertive, but clean hoppy bitterness. Really well balanced pretty easy drinking IPA that packs decent punch.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle shared with Sander in NYC. Pours mostly clear gold with a creamy white head. Lovely aroma, plump and juicy citrus fruits, oranges, melon, tangerine. Medium sweet flavor with more vibrant, citrusy hop character that follows the aroma beautifully. Plenty more grapefruit, some lemon rind, drying pith. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly dry on the finish with more minerals and pith, some bitter pine, lasting grapefruit and tangerine. Wonderful.

RichardW (1514) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
On tap Kings Head Carlisle. Clearest Kernel beer I’ve seen! Shimmering gold, beautiful orange citrus aroma. The palate is slightly chalky with lemon notes and there’s a big grapefruit finish with what I thought might be a bit of vanilla custard! Superb.

Köpt på flaska, liten citrusdoft och ljus färg. Kroppen är tunnare än förväntat och smaken lite mindre, men döljer alkoholen väl. Godkänd! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gunnar (5295) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours hazy golden with a 2 " creamy head. Very strong orange aroma, noticeable 3 feet away from my glass, smells like christmas and easter skiing at the same time,picks up more fresh citrus close up, together with moderate sweet marmelade, very inviting aroma indeed. Taste is light dry, but also initially sweet marmelade, dries up with more citrus and fresh oranges, lovely creamy mouthfeel, joy in a glass.

Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a hazy orange/brown with a creamy frothy head which lasts. Beautiful aromas of mango and soapy tangerine. Nice sharp tropical hoppy taste with a nice tangy bitter linger. Delicious!
