Pours orange gold with small white head and yeast in the pour. Citrus fruity aroma with grapefruit, orange, pine, resin and tea leaves. Dry bitter to finish, crisp and refreshing. Another good Kernel IPA

Scopey (7096) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Bottle at the Kernel. It pours golden with some suspended particles and a small white head. The nose is zesty citrus, juicy orange, passion fruit, mango and faint herbal notes in the background. The taste is zesty grapefruit, touch of spice, orange, mango, passion fruit, sherbet, hint of alcohol in background, pine and resin with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A classic Kernel IPA.

Leighton (11431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours mostly clear gold with a modest, foamy white head. The nose is just bursting with aged cat pee - it’s beautiful. Medium sweet flavor but not cloying, some tropical fruits, lots more urine, moderate bitterness, some grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Great balance. Lightly resinous to finish, ripe piss, some pale malts, mild sticky pine, orange. Nips of robust earthy bitterness. Damn, just delicious. This is The Kernel doin’ it right.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2013
[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy golden yellow beer, with a small, thin head that reduces to a lacing. Aroma is dominated by orange and grapefruit, but there’s some sweeter, stickier fruit in there as well. These come over on the taste – passion fruit, mostly, with that back-up of the more acidic fruits. Lots of mango too – one of those beers that has you mentally running through the ingredients of Five Alive or Um Bongo as you drink. No! Papaya, that was it…(etc) [26032013]

Bottle from Oddbins, London Bridge, London. A hazy golden/orange coloured pour with a small white head on top. Nice fresh hoppy, grapefruit, orange aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, grapefruit, orange, citrus, tropical fruit, slight bitterness. Good stuff as ever from Kernel.

Dashimus (219) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013
Bottle at Hawksmoor Covent Garden. Pours clear golden with a persistent white head. Aroma is fantastic. Grapefruit, orange, pine, pith, passion fruit and line. Taste is a moderate but smooth bitterness with a moderately long finish. Soft carbonation with a medium body. One of the best IPAs out there.

At the Cock Tavern brewpub. Keg. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Simply gorgeous hops - fresh orange, lime, skunk and passion fruit. Lovely juicy citrus underneath. Resinous floral notes as well. A bit of a stunner and I could drink a ton of this.
