Saeglopur (267) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle from Bierresgourmet.be. Golden to amber, hazy body, with medium, creamy, white head, that dissipates pretty quickly and leaves some lacing. Aroma of citrus, orange, some mango and other tropical fruits, grain, sweet malt. Taste of citrus, some tropical fruits, grass, biscuit, honey. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a lively carbonation and finishes with bitter citrus and sweet malt. Interesting IPA with nice citrus notes, but also with a surprisingly complex malt backbone. Not my favourite IPA from The Kernel though.

Pinball (10729) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2014
Tap at mikkeller bar. Cloudy yellow small offwhite head ver nice hoppy bitter and aromatic citrussy and oranges aroma also some sweet malty notes to balance flavor is well malty with barely enough hoppy bitterness and fruitiness to balance. Tastes like high quality but a bit to close to bittersweet malty for my taste.

Desverger (1713) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2014
Tap@Mikkeller Bar, CPH - golden coloured pour with a decent puffy white head with persistent lacing. Fresh fruity citrus and tropical aroma and taste, prominent grapefruit, peachy, mandarin and lemon, some pine and grassy nuances throughout. Gorgeous.

Buongiorgio00 (725) - - JAN 14, 2014
Una di quelle ipa che letteralmente fa muggire dal piacere. Il primo a cadere sotto l’incantesimo è il naso, stregato dall’aroma luppolato, con sentori di buccia d’arancia e agrumi. Poi tocca alla lingua e al palato, letteralmente travolti da un’ondata amara e agrumata, che trascina con sé note citriche e di pompelmo. Il corpo è piuttosto denso, quasi vellutato. Il finale la celebra esaltandone le doti amare. Stupenda.

Defreni (2464) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
Fad: Gul let diset øl med et stort skumhoved. Duft af citrus og så lidt mere. Slår næsten over i syntetisk citrus så gennemtrængende er den. Dette er en tand for meget og trækker ned på en ellers lækker og meget drikbar øl.

jerd16 (185) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 Hazy amber colour with lasting frothy head. .Beautiful bold aroma with discernible mixture of tropical and citrus fruits - peach, mango, lemon and a little grapefruit. The palate maintains Kernel’s lofty standards: medium body, beautifully smooth and velvety, almost creamy like. Orange pith, generic bitter citrus, some softer tropical fruit and sturdy malt backbone. Perfect balance. Pithy medium bitter, moreish tail. Brilliant beer. Kernel reigns supreme.

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2013
Another outstanding hoppy beer from these guys. A very simple yet classy IPA. Loads of citrus. A citrus bomb full of sweet forward fruits, juice, rind and zest. Superb balance as always. Great drinkability. An outstanding IPA

TBone (12458) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Bottled 330ml 6.6% ABM. Bottled 050213. Hazy deep orange color, decent white head. Very fresh Citra aroma: citrus and gooseberry leaves. Medium-bodied. Soft palate. Citrus, gooseberries, fruity notes. Balance with malts and hops. Citra works quite nicely as a single hop.
