sjogro (2299) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle shared by Maakun at his place. Nice one dude! Slightly murky pale golden with thin head. Sweet malts, marijuana hops, sweet resin, chicory like bitterness. Medium body, velvety smooth oily feel, low carbonation. Very hoppy, almost like chewing hop pallets. Not as fruity as some of the other Kernel IPAís, I kinda miss the fruitiness.

Maakun (3422) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Murky dark golden with small off white head. Massive fruity juice, some lime, marijuana, dank cellar notes, orange, brown bread, caramel, overripe mango, cake, quite sugary. Medium sweet and a bit under medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bit creamy sugary feel. Very nice but not my favorite Kernel IPA.

The clue is in the name -- this is a pretty by-the-book IPA brewed exclusively with Citra. The result is tons of orange juice fruit aroma and a soft, gentle hop bite. Itís really tasty and very good, although the single-hop bill made it just a little lacking in complexity.
