MannyGoldberg (160) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
17th Feb 2012- bottle at home. 6.6% vers bought direct from the brewery. This was bottled less than a fortnight ago (that's 2 weeks for any Americans reading) so mega fresh. Huge citrus explosion on the nose. Taste is very balanced without any of the astringency you get from lesser Citra based beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (4069) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. poured a cloudy orange colour with a very thin, off-white head and no lace. The carbonation is very low. The aroma is grassy and a little floral. The flavour is hoppy, zesty and the dry pepper hoppiness hits the palate right away. The smooth bitter aftertaste makes this a very diverse and refreshing ale that justifies its rating.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl, 6.5% abv) Cloudy, orange-golden colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Piney and slightly sweaty aroma with notes of citrus and pineapples, accompanied by a mildly malty background. Moderately bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry malty base with loads of citric and exotic hops, also slightly resiny towards the dry and moderately bitter finish. 17.XII.12

TheJestersBeer (2034) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2012
Keg, assuming this is the version that was on tap at The Dean Swift. Pours a medium gold, slightly hazy, with a white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma, spruce, malt, grapefruit, grass, apricot, passion fruit. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity, hoppy taste, apricot, malt, spruce, resin, grapefruit, grass, yeast. Big, bold, balanced. (2012-11-21)

Pretty sure this is the version I had on tap at Craft Beer Co. Wow, did not know the Kernel made so damn many varieties of their APA and IPA, batch by batch. Big lustrous orange pour with a silky head and a massive citrus nose. Soft, elegant mouthfeel and taste that balances the bitter with the sweet. Not quite as rocking as the APA but very good nonetheless.

RoyB (17) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2012
This is the best IPA I personally ever had. The aroma and also the palate is full of tropical fruits like bananas, oranges, pineapples and peaches. The taste is fresh citra hopps, citrus fruits, oranges, hoppy bitterness that makes it very fresh.

Mochan1984 (5) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012 does not count
Still undecided about which is the greatest London IPA. Kernel Citra, Brodies Citra or Redchurch Great Eastern? Anyway, I think this has to be a regular for the Kernel. His best IPA so far and I reckon he knows it. Can’t imagine how better it can get.
