gunnar (5457) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle from a trade with madmitc76. Pours almost clear golden with a big creamy stable white head. Aroma is citrus and oranges with a good malty body underneath. Taste is all about the hops, fresh and juicy orange, light sweet marmelade at the rear, dry and bitter mouthfeel, lovely lingering juicy citrus.

chimpgibbon (313) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius 330ml @5%. 3 months since bottling so not in prime condition, but still a lovely IPA from Kernel. Tangerine and pineapple right through this hazy gold number. tartness on the end to balance it. Just great.

Cask at Inn Deep Glasgow. Bloody hell, this is a glorious ale... Absolutely delicious! Cloudy orange body, sweet citrusy aroma with malty tones, very wet taste, lovely wild fruit taste with a dry crisp finish. Again, absolutely delicious!

flying_pig (965) - SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle from The Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.20, 330ml):
Hoppy with plenty of pine and citrus notes to begin with, there is also a nice helping tropical notes along with some grapefruit, orange with some background caramel malts.
Cloudy, dark golden amber colour with a lot of sediment at the bottom of the bottle as well as in the glass. There is a pinky sized, foamy white head that holds very well.
Pine hops with some grapefruit and plenty of tropical fruits but it’s not quite as bitter as I was expecting from the smell. There is some sweetness and the caramel malts are more pronounced here but they still remain in the background throughout. More citrus and orange towards the end.
Smooth with a light medium body. As expected the beer is very bitter and full of citrus that gives it a nice tang towards the end and overall it has a nice balance with a crisp finish.

Another fine beer from The Kernel, this is the reason I pick up their beers any chance I get. This one looks fantastic and smells great too with a lot of tropical fruits and bitter pine hops to start off with.

bytemesis (3307) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle - thanks Ben! Bottled 3/12/2013. Pours cloudy amber-yellow with a few yeast floaties and a medium creamy beige head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, spruce, citrus, a touch of cat piss. Flavor is the same, very pine-needly, light biscuit malts. Light sweet, light bitter increasing somewhat to the finish. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel.

Fresh, as you expect from the kernel and very rounded. An aftertaste that lingers for some time. Lots of hops tasting of citrus and pine. Not quite as sharp and dry as the Citra (still my favourite) but very, very good.

Bottle@Home. Very hoppy aroma, little earthy. Pale yellow, white head, good lace. Very refreshing, not expecting this from the aroma, citrus, pine, yummy.

harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras. Hazy orange gold with thin white head. Herby orange aroma. Soft in mouth. Good mouthfeel. Good orange. Herby. Decent bitterness on finish. Very soft and rather drinkable. It disappeared in about 5 minutes so I must have liked it. Bitterness is good so is the mouthfeel.
