Backlog rating. Keg at the brewery tap room, London. It pours a clean golden color with a large white head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy with ripe tropical fruit salad notes. Mango, peaches, citrus. Taste is hoppy and fruity with soft bitterness. Nice body with good carbonation. Overall, really good IPA

Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones, Banbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. This hop combination really worked for me, fresh, tangy with orange and grapefruit flavours. Bitter with a grassy edge, lasting on the palate. A pure delight of a beer.

Great brewer with two of my favourite hops. Wow that’s fruity - orange, lemon, grapefruit and exotic fruits. Medium body, fairly thick and not too carbonated.

ThirstyBird (2184) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
Bottled on April 13 2014. Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice off-white head. The smell is huge citrus, a touch of spice, yeast and tropical fruit! The taste is sweeter and maltier than the nose but still with prominent hops...citrus some tropical fruit ending crust and a bit dry. The body is medium and silky with fine carbonation. Overall pretty nice as are all of the Kernel beers that I’ve had but not at the top of the list.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks rayaron. Hazy yellow-orange with a creamy head. Pleasant hoppy aroma of tropical and citrus fruits (mango, grapefruit), some floral notes. Sweetish and fruity with mild bitterness, quite mellow for IPA, dry finish, long hoppy aftertaste. Medium-bodied, extremely drinkable. Very good.
