0,33 bottle from bottle-shop.co.uk
Wonderful hops aroma right out of the bottle. Small white head, quickly disappearing. Hazy orange to copper colour. Aroma citrus fruits, mango. Taste initially fruity mango sweet, quickly overtaken by bitter hop explosion. Grassy, grapefruit. This is probably as far, as one can get with citra only. Very drinkable, looong dry bitter finish, I can imagine finishing this bottle in seconds :-)
Exotic fruits, citrus fruits, good grassy bitterness, it is all to be found and enjoyed here. Very good.

gegwilson (2103) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours quite a cloudy amber with a light layer of off white froth. Pleasant spicy pine hop aroma. The taste is lots of fresh pine with a lovely caramel backing. Fairly spicy too. Top notch drinkability and mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Wow! Serious hop forward aromas, passion fruit, grapefruit, some resin too. Taste is Bittersweet with luscious tropical flavours and a grapefruit like pithiness and bitter astringency, which is well balanced. A really great beer, Kernel pack an incredible amount of flavour into their beers

Unbelieveble beer. Gold color. Aroma is amazing, full of citruses and little bit hop. Medium body and very very well balanced. Taste is like a citruses bomb. At the end bitter from hop. Very, very, very good drinkable.

AdiBeer (2089) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma: tropical fruits, mango, peaches, some citrus fruits. Appearance: pale, hazy, gold, small, frothy, white beer. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets intensify, very juicy tropical fruits, some grain malts, turns lightly dry in the finish, very soft carbonation. Overall: very nice IPA, yet I was expecting a bit more, solid Kernel-quality, but is it their best IPA, not for me. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath.

GlasgowTAD (588) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy dark yellow with a shortlived head which becomes a frothy layer quickly. Aroma is earthy, grassy, sprucey, citrusy and slightly floral - so fecken dank I may add it could alley-oop whilst doing a backflip. Taste is characteristically the same as the aroma - earthy, grassy, slightly orange citrussy and not very bitter. Very rich in both taste and aroma, once it coats your mouth the juice just stays there. Full bodied and very easy to drink.
