Monchito_IPA (112) - SPAIN - SEP 13, 2013
Clara con espuma muy blanca. El aroma es muy intenso, aunque la mayoría de la gente habla de aroma cítrico a mí me parece que tiene un toque dulzón más propio de frutas tropicales, en todo caso tiene un aroma a lúpulo afrutado, con un matiz resinoso que no sé describir y que no había detectado en otras cervezas. De sabor bastante amargo, con un final largo amarguito muy agradable, al ser tan afrutada también tiene un toque dulce en el paladar. Fresca, original y recomendable.

Was my first ever Kernel... can’t believe I’ve never rated it! 6.6% bottle. Slightly murky golden pour with tiny head. Big funky, piney, veggy hit on the nose. Gorgeous lipsmacking fruit burst with big hop bitterness. Nice carbonation which really goes deep into the end of the mouthful leaving a medium dry hop and funky finish.

The pub I found this in were having difficulties with the haziness of the beer and consequently did not have it on sale. Luckily I persuaded them; a beautiful beer, perfectly matched to my palate. Wish this was more widely available!

caesar (4715) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from sourced market, large sample. Hazy golden color, short head. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, some biscuity malt. Bitter fruit punch, cookie. In their ipas they put a decent amount of biscuity malts, which makes the balance superb. Great stuff, although a bit one dimensional.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Pretty delicious, bags of passion fruit and peach. A lovely light orange peach haze, soft syrupy mouthfeel and modest carbonation.

McNeillR (976) - SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Light golden straw, fairly dulled haze. Bright resonant strums of lemon and wide eyed lime. Highlights of slick malt so well placed it’s like lesser attempts have chewed up and regurgitated the best bits. Sweetness is maybe a little dragging on the simple refreshment; I don’t know if it’s the lower ABV or freshness but this was much more ruthless in profiling the Citra. Fair carbonation throughout circles things meanincingly. This is as unfathomable as The Kernel gets, crisp and firm with the yeast only popping up to glue the joins. Really compresses in the single hop without crashing through the rest of the structure.

Niall73 (1054) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
ABV 6.6%. Bottled on 01/07/13. Pours a hazy light brown orange colour. Nice orange, some earthiness, slight funky b.o ’ish stuff, floral, piney, some candy... it smells great. And it tastes good too. Sweet, slight caramel to start, tropical fruit mix thing, a nice dry piney taste, citrus bitter finish. It’s very nice.
