Blonde tres tres tres legerement trouble. Au nez ca semble bien resineux, quelques notes agrumes, un peu fruité de la passion. Et en bouche c’est bien plus sec que ce que l’on aurait pu présagé. Oui il y a bien des touches boisées pin des landes, mais c’est aussi super resineux, vert. Un peu bonne si on croquait un babet tout vert avec les aiguilles en plus. crunch. Du coup c’est bon mais un poil deséquilibré. Et ’est un peu rapeux sur le coté de la bouche.

Bottle, bought @ Mikkeller and Friends, Cph.
Pours clear yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has resin, grapefruit, citrus, pine needles. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of hops, very bitter. Resiny, almost oily, soft piney. Fine maltiness to balance. Long, lingering very bitter finish. Very nice IPA.

Ah, more Kernel. First sighting in Belgium for me. 25 cl. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Keg. Looks a pretty pale citrus with a creamy white head. Nose is citrus, tad fake citrus peel, bitter spices hops & way mellower Kernel yeas than I am used to. Taste is spices & lemon peel hops, light citrus peel, Kernel yeast is more subdued than usual, bitter herbs & light spices in the back. Very light body, feels stronger than the ABV. Nice overall but very different than I am used to from Kernel bottles & draft at festivals. This has that Moeder feel to it, you know? Still not bad to get Kernel here.

Bottle from Grape n Grind. The Kernel rocks. There’s no more to it. Great hop, great style, and a great treatment thereunto. Arbor do this hop well, the Kernel do it better. That said, the carbing is a little intense in the Kernel’s - if you had Arbor’s mouthfeel with the Kernel’s balance and level of intensity you’d have a pretty spot on IPA. I hope these brewers read these things.
