Monchito_IPA (141) - SPAIN - SEP 15, 2013
Color ámbar, dorada, con espuma muy blanca y persistente. Tiene un aroma muy cítrico al comienzo pero a medida que se calienta y oxigena empiezan a aparecer otros aromas frutales. De entrada en el paladar cítrico y amargor moderado, final largo y amargo pero al ser tan afrutada también tiene un dulzor muy equilibrado, cuando está en su temperatura aparece el melocotón sobre los cítricos. Es una IPA extraordinaria.

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.

330 bottle beer merchants. Lovely subtle mango aroma, doesn’t hit you in the face like some do. Slightly perfumed, the finish is medium dry, with just the occasional peach sweetness to counter. The hop combo makes this a wee bit different to the recent Kernel beers I’ve had. Great stuff.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours mostly clear, yellow-gold with a lasting, frothy, pure white head. The aroma is just filled with juicy citrus character, lots of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, hay, pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with lightly dry pale malt sugars, plenty of citrus, some pithy grapefruit, tangerine, orange rind, melon, light alcohol, faint bitter grass. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with lots of juicy, somewhat sticky and resinous hops, pineapple, lemon zest, bitter grapefruit and orange rind, a bit of grass and pine. There’s a bitterness in the aftertaste that seems a bit more pronounced than in the typical Kernel IPA. Still, only a small qualm with what is otherwise a lovely beer.

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.

spacecube (835) - 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.

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.
