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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
