tom10101 (4004) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
On tap @ Café A (Paris Beer Week). Hazy/murky yellow/golden with a huge white head and good lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy with a nice amount of citrus, tropical fruits, light pine, hints of malt and light grassy notes. Taste is also of burst of citrus with a good malt backbone, light bitterness, very light caramel and piney notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Another very solid IPA from The Kernel. Amazingly tasty, drinkable and quenching. They are among the best - if not the best - in the world for that kind of beer.

Burgers (335) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Pours hazy golden colour with a persistent small white head. Aromas of hops, grapefruit and lactose. Taste is sweet, sour and bitter. Slightly astringent finish. This bottle was 6.9% and as Kernel do seem to play around with their recipes and don’t have barcodes you can’t be quite sure you’re tasting the same beer as other reviewers.
