Svesse (7932) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2012
(Bottle, purchased at the brewery outlet) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with huge frothy off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, tropical fruit (lychee, passion fruit, mango), a touch of honey and floral, citric hops. Fruity taste with citrus, apricots, passion fruit, pineapple, mango, a touch of crystal malt, orange peel, honey and a fresh, citric bitterness in the finish. Slightly more than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Very nice and tasty IPA with a fresh citric hop character, yet in excellent balance. Lovely!

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle during RBWG 2013 thanks to Leighton! Golden orange pour. Lots of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, and touches of pine and bitterness in the aroma and flavor. Tasty!

jmgreenuk (7843) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - 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.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a large white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, pineapple and pear juice. Flavour of strong citrusy hops, some bready malts, grapefruit, tropical fruits and some sweetness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Finishes fruity, citrusy and strong on bitterness. Very well balanced, but could use a more plentiful hop profile.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Cask (handpump) at Mason & Taylor Hip Hop festival on 22 April 2011. Noted at 6.5%. Gold colour with a slight haze. Big grassy and tropical fruit (mango?) hop presence. Very nettley aroma. Sweet tangerine flavours, leading into a juicy, tangy, moderately bitter finish. Very tasty and enjoyable.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2011
A Mes rate. Tap at the Dean Swift.Firstly thanks to Max for letting me try this before it was officially available. Secondly, and excuse the language here, this is fucking amazing. Really phenominal. Iím struggling to deal with the awesomeness I have in front of me. Stunning, just stunning lychee and fresh citric fruit. Lemongrass, ganja, earth, bright and exciting and my god itís just fucking perfect. The length is beyond description. Each sip leaves me wanting to down my whole glass but I know if I wait, the flavour development is just an epic journey. The balance of dry and jucy is without doubt the best I have experienced in an IPA. And I know thatís saying something. I canít do this justice in my notes and itís very rare that happens. A beer of exceptional quality. If ever a Kernel beer should be a regular nae permanent in production, this is it. Utterly blown away. Flavour and aroma are through the roof. Drinkability is outstanding. I canít believe Iím saying this but this is the best UK beer I have had. Fuck, itís one of the best beers Iíve had full stop.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle from the legendary Kris Wines. Slightly hazy deep orange color without the usual huge Kernel head (perhaps my pouring skillz are on the wane). The nose is funky orange sherbet and plenty of sweet tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango, all the usual suspects. The taste is light salty cheese, plenty of orange, sea grass, resin and more tropical fruits. Nice, light body. Smooth and supple. Overall, another good one from the lords of Bermondsey.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Golden orange, slightly cloudy. Lighter aroma of citrusy hops,much duller than forthcoming flavor. Citrus zest filled flavor, juicy citrusy hops. Another winner from the Kernel

bytemesis (6977) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle thanks to BenH! Pours cloudy amber with a small beige creamy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, a touch of passion fruit - quite intoxicating. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, medium bitter with a dryish bitter finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice West Coast style IPA.
