Bottle at home - 21st October 2011. Wow what a beer best beer I have ever had in bottle, piney, mango, peach aroma and taste, oily mouth feel and perfect carbonation. I have gone out and bought 12 other offerings from The Kernel and look forward to trying them all!

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. Canít imagine how better it can get.

Bottle conditioned, 330 ml from Merton Beer Fest í12. Hop hazed gold with white head. Wowzer, what a great beer. The aroma is of fresh Passion fruit mixed with Kiwi. The beer has an intensely concentrated hop flavour, grapefruit yes, plus lemons and every citrus note you can think of. Biting, fresh, dry and bitter on a good biscuity body. Straight into my top beers of all time list, incredible.

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.

ivory white head that quickly disappears, not much lacing. clear straw-yellow body. passion fruit and hop resin. passion fruit taste, very well balanced bitterness, medium carbonation, long pleasant aftertaste. this is just a delicious IPA, this was a bottle of one month old still packed with aroma and flavour, wonder how much more one would get out of an even fresher one? :) another great one from the kernel! (bottle 33cl / notes from backlog)

Bottle from Mr Lawrence, Brockley. Hazy orange pour with a lingering white head. Fabulous tropical fruit bowl aroma thatís up there with the very best. Piney resinous hop, weed, citrus aplenty, a little sweetness. A little sniff of heaven if there ever was one. The flavour lived up to the infinite promise shown in the nose. More juicy citrus mingled with some balancing malts and superb hoppage. Bitterness spot on and drinkibality just off the scale. Refreshing and hugely satisfying. Quite simply this beer is the bomb, and my favourite offering thus far from the Kernel. World-beating stuff.

[330ml bottle, Kernel Brewery, London] Pours a hazy gold with a slight white head. Wonderful Citra aromas of rich tropical and citrus fruit. On the palate itís perfectly balanced Ė the hop bitterness with some sweetness there, big fruity flavours Ė and a fantastic bitter finish. Perfectly combines the zesty fruit with a rounded sweetness. As good as any craft American IPA, and to date, my favourite Kernel beer. Awesome stuff

330ml bottle at 6.5%, purchased from Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Another contender for best smell ever: just intoxicating - bitter, sour, fresh and pillowy, with the sort of sweetened urine blast that makes me a believer. Mouthfeel is thick and crunchy, with a powerful hop blast which leave a peppered trail on my tongue/chops. As I drink more of these superb IPAs, I worry that I will become blase to their charm and quality. But this is reassuringly good and makes me realise how lucky I am to be consuming it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Have been lucky enough to try this, very fresh, quite a few times now and it is probably my favorite IPA FULL STOP. Pours golden with a medim full head that is fairly dense and creamy. Smell is superb! Just one of those beers I find myself smelling over adn over without even tasting and still feeling great about it. Lotís of Citrus zest mostly grapefruit, sticky pine resin and honey and grass as well rounding it out. Taste is much like the smell but a bit rougher and heavier on the pine less so on the citrus. Patate is medium and not as sticky as I thought it would be, but this is an IPA not a DIPA so I guess I should have expected the refreshment that I got rather than the sticky icky I expect from great DiPAís. Overall this is a fantastic IPA from a World Class Brewery which I am lucky enough to live about 1.5 miles away from.
