jackl (6101) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods Kensington. The pourís deep hazy amber with a tight white head. Pretty classic Kernel appearance. The nose is mango, soft tropical trade wind. A bit of salty pineapple. Inviting grapefruit citrus. The taste is more grapefruit. Bitter green shoots and dirty, grassy hops. Lemon peel. Ripe tropical fruits. Slightly chalky and dry. Assertive bitterness indeed. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall, quite pleasant. Definitely not passive.

mcberko (10556) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
On tap at Euston Tap, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus hops and caramel malts. Flavour brings out citrusy hops, a bit of licorice, some mangos and pineapple, and some dry caramel malts. Quite astringent, finishing on tropical fruity notes. Very flavourful. Great stuff.

Hermod (4964) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 24, 2013
33cl bottle from AlesByMail. Bottled on 26/03/13. 7,2% on the label. Unclear amber, with a frothy, white head. Cats piss and gooseberry with some sweeter tropical fruit in the back. Flavor has grapefruit, pine, very fresh, very bitter and dry grapefruity finish. Medium bodied. Not that fond of the aroma, but the flavor is awesome.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
Bottle at cafe oto, dalston. Strong pineapple aroma, a soupcon of mango and banana and touch of boiled sweets, specifically lemon sherbets. Sugar, then a pronounced bitterness, too much in the aftertaste. Mild carbonation. Tasty as a sipper but not balanced as other similar beers, e.g. magic rock - high wire which is sublime.

spacecube (1483) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
7.2 abv bottle, pours a slightly hazy golden brown, biscuit malts underneath a powerful hop presence, with pineapple, passion fruit and a long bitter finish. High quality IPA, as usual, from Kernel

jamestulloch (2462) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2013
Aroma: Lychee and pineapple. Pungent, powerful aroma.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a huge off-white head. Very light carbonation. Great lacing.

Taste: Pineapple, pine, sweet lychee and a muted bitter finish. Nice pale malt balance.

Palate: Medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation.

Overall: I didnít realise the Columbus hop could have such a powerful flavour. A fairly typical (in other words, brilliant) Kernel IPA.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl, 6.2% abv) Almost cloudy, pale golden colour with a blond and short foamy layer. Citric and slightly exotic fruity hoppy aroma with a mildly flowery touch. Moderately bitter flavour with a whiff of sourness, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry pale malt character with present fruity, mainly citric hops; dry and moderately bitter hop-laden finish with notes of grapefruit in the aftertaste. Another gem. 17.XII.12
