FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2013
Keg at North Bar, Leeds (7.2% version). Pours a clear straw yellow, finger of head. Aroma is musty at first with grapefruit and tart citrus fruits/orange peel as it warms up. Taste is again musty as it goes in, with a touch of breadiness before the big grapefruit hops kick in. Orange and grass (both kinds) too. Bitter ans sharp, but brilliantly balanced. Just a classic Kernel IPA.

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 (2286) - 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.
