Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 10, 2012
0.33l bottle from beermerchants.com The pour on this one is light blurry and it’s kinda dark champagne-golden in color. It has a small quickly sidesticking off-white head that leaving nice lacings down the glass. The aroma is quite citrussy and hoppy with tones of branches, ripe strawberries, grapefruit, caramel and pine. Quite nice indeed. It has a comfortable creamy-oily mouthfeel and it’s average carbonated. Nothing bad to say on the flavors either. That typical citra touch is perhaps a bit fade, so I suspect this is not the freshest batch, but still it’s quite fruity and hoppy in the flavor. Some ripe and almost grassy bitterness all the way with both citrus and apricots. Yeah, a real treat this one! 16.03.2012

My first tasting of The Kernel. Delicious IPA. Crisp and refreshing. Smells wonderful - flowers, citrus - tastes much the same with a twang of bitterness. Perhaps slightly too bitter on the aftertaste, but regardless, I need to buy a lot of this.

PotjeBier (1640) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2012
33 cl bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Clear golden to amber color. Not much almost white head.Aroma’s: resin, citrus, bit sweet fruit, bit acidic. Flavor: lightly bitter and sweet, somewhat acidic. Medium bodied. Finishes a bit dry and medium bitter. Flavor is more subtle than expected from the aroma. Tasty nonetheless.

Bottle conditioned, 330 ml from Merton Beer Fest ’12. Hop hazed gold with white head. Wowzer, what a great beer. The aroma is of fresh Passion fruit mixed with Kiwi. The beer has an intensely concentrated hop flavour, grapefruit yes, plus lemons and every citrus note you can think of. Biting, fresh, dry and bitter on a good biscuity body. Straight into my top beers of all time list, incredible.

shoulderbroken (1986) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 13, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Orange coloured, slightly cloudy with big white bubbly head. Aroma is lots of lemon, other citrus. Taste is equally citrussy, nice bitterness. Very drinkable.

JanLaursen (3052) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2012
Tap at Mikkeller Bar. Orange-colored, cloudy beer with a frothy white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, apricot and grapefruit. Medium to heavy sweet and bitter strong, appears, however, very well balanced, although perhaps a little unexciting.

Chopp. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Citrus hoppy aroma indeed. Good mouthfeel. Flavour has citrus hops, some sweetness and fruit.

dEnk (3773) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is huge citrussy hops (no shit!), subtle caramel like malt note. Flavour is a very clean and fresh citrus hop bitterness, perfect balance with the malt. Kernel is the king of great clean ipa’s.

strong citrusy nose with a dab of caramel. Dry. Nothing over powering. Mouth is well balanced. Moderate bitter finish.

Bottle. Hazy copper/orange color, lasting offwhite head. Fruity aroma, citrus, pine apple, hay and apples. Hoppy grapefruit flavor, citrus, pine apple, pear notes. Long hop finish with fruits and notes of perfume. Very refreshing and drinkable!
