Bottle at Beer Rebellion. Bottled on 17/06/13. Pours a hazy orange gold colour. Nice zesty light tropical fruit aroma. Mediun to light body. Foamy mouthfeel. Lots of fruit - mango, pineapple with citrussy grapefruit too and a good bitter finish. Very nice.

Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is semi dry and crisp. Mild minerals. Light thin malt. Bitter hops - pithy orange and grapefruit backed by the same fruits peel. Nice touch of floral sweetness brings balance. The back end is quite limey, lime peel that goes through the airy dry finish and well in to the linger. Goods stuff.

The_Bish (1123) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Ah yes. Kernel IPAs are truly wonderful.Executed lovelily, dark amber pour, bitterly lipsmacking. I grew up on the Kings Heath side, the red triangle vibe.

Bottle from Beermerchants, bottled 17.06. Pours hazy golden, huge frothy white head. Aroma of oranges, mango,peach and piney hops. Taste is crisp, super fresh and juicy tropical fruits, tangerine and oranges. Super balanced and lingering bitter fruity. Classy.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
330ml bottle, bottled on 17/6 so 32 days old exactly. Lovely aroma, fruit salad in the nose, grapefruit, guava, kiwi, some caramel & biscuit malt flavours balancing with the hop and leaving a succulent, fruity, dry, bitter hoppy finish. Excellent hoppy IPA again from Kernel. Very tasty.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Hazy gold, with a slight, off-white head and plentiful carbonation. Sharp, tropical fruit, with some solid, biscuity malt bite and a tongue tingling, dryish finish with plenty of hops. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Very nice IPA from Kernel, good mix of hops, works well together, like a group. Fresh new kicks and pants You got it like that now you know you wanna dance So move out of your seat And get a fly girl and catch this beat While it’s rollin’ hold on pump a little bit And let me know it’s going on like that like that Cold on a mission so pull on back Love Wu Tang, CREAM baby...
