IluvatarMilan (281) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Draft at Dean Swift - another case of the Kernel doing what they do best: brewing superb fresh and fruity IPAs. This one has a sweet nose of oranges, mango. Taste is medium-bodied, beautifully hoppy without overshooting in any direction. Mild hoppy aftertaste.

MOARBEER (94) - WALES - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle from Geers marked 7.2%. Pours like dirty dishwater. Cloudy grey/taupe. Visually unappealing. Aroma is big juicy fruit, mandarin, grapefruit, yeast. Taste follows with medium bitterness.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2013
Solid Kernel offering, on tap at the Old Fountain, although they had it down as 7.2% rather than 6% (error? Didn’t taste mega strong).

Niall73 (2284) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
On tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a head yellow gold with a thin white head and some visible fine carbonation. Aroma is elderflower, piss, lychee, passion fruit, lemon, grass. Light body, foamy. Fresh, crisp with Elderflower, lemonade, mango, a hint of candy, a touch of veggie earthiness, finishes with a touch of bitter grapefruit, but its subtle. So well balanced, complex. It's really nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ErkkiH (6) - - SEP 15, 2013 does not count
Pours with a rich, thick, sea shore-like head. Color is a delicious light amber. Aroma is an explosion of fruit and hop. Amazing taste, full of tropical fruit. Refreshing, slighly sweet, moderately hoppy. Crisp palate with a soft carbonation. Nice, extremely long finish.

gunnar (6631) - 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 (424) - 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.
