3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Light aroma of tropical fruits, typical of this style, but lighter than expected. Pours a hazy light orange with thin white head. Taste was a very subtle mix of mango and pineapple with hint of citrus hops, fairly light body for a beer of this strength but with a bitter finish. Not bad really, just not as good as other Kernel beers and other Galaxy IPA’s (see Brewdog)

Keg at The Grand Union, Westbourne Park, London. A hazy golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, malty, citrus aroma. Tastes similar hoppy, malty, tropical fruit, citrus fruit, slight bitterness. A solid, complex, elegant brew indeed and it is from London!.

Top brew. Hazy rust orange colour, thick foam head that lasts. Citrus aroma, with a lovely softening big hop and citrus flavour. Never overpowering. Lovely.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
[330ml bottle, The Bottle Shop, Canterbury] Pours the ever-typical Kernel muzzy gold – I imagine Evin’s bathroom is done out in similar colours. Mango and grapefruit on the nose from the start. Big Kernel fruit flavour, plenty of lychee, passion fruit. Sweet and juicy. Lilt-esque. It then gets slightly resinous, before the alcohol comes in. I got a noticeable alcohol warmth from this that sometimes I don’t from the other duty threshold IPA’s from the Kernel. A great beer, of course. ’Rubicon guava poured over peanuts’ – can’t top that

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from....somewhere in Cov in the Oerbier balloon. My rating is based on a whole bottle poured clear (initially), not an eggcupful of dregs. Dusted gold with a fine-moussed foam. Gets a 1.4 for the nose alone; Tropical Starburst, passion fruit, urinal, celery, blackcurrant, spliff, lady’s neck. This is a beautiful beer exemplfying everything that I love about English beer at the moment; massive, perfumed, new world hop exoticsim; malt-soft, cask-like condition, irresistable drinkability. Diaphanous malts not smothering the hops. I think it tastes like galangal, a whole pack of Tropical Starburst chews crammed in your gob at once, Rubicon Guava poured over peanuts, Darjeeling, celery, passion fruit.....but don’t listen to me. Comparisons undersell it’s beauty. Good as faultless.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: Kiwi, guava, mango and subtle banana. Incredibly powerful aroma.
Appearance: Hazy gold body. Foamy pure white head. Light carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: Tropical fruit flavours - similar to the wonderful aroma, but with a more citrus notes (lemon and lime). Very hoppy, very bitter and well balanced. It is extremely moreish and the 7.4% ABV is very well hidden.
Palate: Medium mouthfeel with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation.Wonderful long-lasting bitter finish.
Overall: An incredible beer, perhaps the best I’ve tasted. This is a hoppy, fruity, bitter IPA that could be enjoyed again and again.

Bottled. A murky dark golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, hops, and a bit of malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops and medium notes of lemons, straw, and yeast, leading to a dry finish.
