caesar (4711) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from sourced market, large sample. Hazy golden color, short head. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, some biscuity malt. Bitter fruit punch, cookie. In their ipas they put a decent amount of biscuity malts, which makes the balance superb. Great stuff, although a bit one dimensional.

Bottle from Bierkoning. Murky light orange body with sticky head. Nose of grapefruit, citrus and sweet hops. Taste is delicious hops, citrus and grapefruits. Really bitter as well. Very nice with a delectable finish.

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2011
33cl Bottle, gift from Nate2g, massive thanks for this beauty! ABV 6.2% (it’s not the Citra +, checked the label dozens of times). Hazy golden orange colour, dense white head. Gorgeous aroma of citrussy hops, grapefruit, some strawberries, some sweet malts and caramel. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, fresh citrus and lime, grapefruit, light sweet fruity, creamy, very nice citrussy hop finish. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent IPA.

Countbeer (4031) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2011
Draught @ BBF’11: Small white head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Smell hops, citrus, peach, soap, manure. Taste citrus, hops, peach, abricot, bitter but more fruity and good full bodied taste! Good fruity and bitter aftertaste. Low carbo, creamy texture and mouthfeel and a full body. Lovely!

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2012
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.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle, shared by Leighton on the RBWG bus. Psyched to try these Kernel beers I have heard so much about. Lightly hazy orange with a small fizzy white head. Nose is citra, big citrus, lightly tropical, caramel malt balance. Flavor is similar, lots of fresh citrus, soft bitterness, fairly dry juicy finish. Tasty.

tkrjukoff (3896) - SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2011
Pours clear orange amber (be careful with the yeast cediment) with nice fluffy beige head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is piny, fruity, a bit sweet, caramel and citric. Acidy citric mouthfeel. Fruity, citric, piny, hoppy and sweet flavor, very nice and different. Acidy fruity palate. Finishes with a very nice tart bitter bite with a citrus touch.
