dnicolaescu (1804) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2016 BOTTLE 33 CL at 6,8%, courtesy of Maersk. Hazy dark amber, rich creamy head. Big tropical fruit aroma, peaches, balanced by fresh resins and dankness. The malts are subtle and stay far behind. The taste is neither dry nor sweet - you don’t get the malty taste not the maltose sugars, but it does not feel overly dry either. Rich and fresh hops, grapefruit zest and piney freshness. Pungent zesty bitter finish. Super-smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Pretty much flawless.

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2016
Draft @ Tilquin English Fest ’16, day2. Dorée, col fin blanc. Arôme au nez très plaisant, fruité, agrumes et pas mal de citron-agrumes, note verte presque de raisin blanc de sauternes. Palais est léger malté, citronné bien présent, Citra généreux avec un petit soupçon de tropical complété par une base maltée qui apporte balance.

Draught. Murky blonde with an almost white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, very intense with some citrus. Very smooth, creamy. Medium carbonation. Oily. Taste is more tropical fruit, some zesty flavours, some maltiness. Very good drinkability. Hoppy, but well balanced.

vincentvega72 (349) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Héél mooi oranjekleurig troebel bier met romige witte schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Fantastisch aroma en smaken van mandarijn, mango, tropisch fruit, ananas. Zacht van smaak met lekkere hoppig-bittere afdronk. Topbier.

Zakoon (483) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2016
330ml bottle enjoyed @ home some time ago, thanks to Gary May. Pours murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, citrus, caramel, bready and pine. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet. Medium to full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Finish is smooth and fruity. Well-balanced.

nihtila (2746) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2016
Bottle from Bottle Baron, at 6.7%. Bottled only a month ago. Pours murky golden as Kernels often tend to do. Luckily that’s pretty much the negative things to say. Nose is delicious fruity, juicy, sweetish, passionfruit, mango, some caramel and yeast. Tastes fruity, pineapple, passionfruit, resinous and grassy hops, light yeast. Doesn’t quite reach the aroma but still, after few "only" good or very good Kernel IPAs, this is spot on.

Bottle. Pours a dense cloudy golden orange with a mostly lasting thin bubbly off white head. Aroma of exotic fruits, pineapple, mango, passionfruit, citrus, grassy, hint of biscuits. Taste is of more exotic fruits, mango, passionfruit, oranges, citrus, grapefruit, caramel. Sticky oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Marduk (6004) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 20, 2016
Tap @Alus Celle, Riga. Cloudy orange color. Tiny size, white head, stays. Citrus, fruity, dirty yeast and some caramel in aroma. Citrus, fruity, caramel in taste. Nice balance between citrusy hops and caramel. It’s strong, but can’t detect any hints of alcohol. Nothing is overdone. Highly drinkable. Nice one.
