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 (2903) - 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.

Marduk (6325) - 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.

martpez (127) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2016 Pours murky with a decent head. Lovely aroma, with grassy hops and grapefruit notes. The texture is fantastic lush and dense. This beer tastes brilliant. Its complex and strong. Massively on the hoppy side but it pulls it off well!
