330ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Saveur Biere. Mmm... Nice smell and looks good too. Taste is smooth first, but at the end bitter too. Nice one from Kernel. Again.

Maakun (826) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 Bottle a few months past bb date. Slight hazy golden with nice sized white head. Massive hops with some lime, pine and very flowery. A hint of butter with fresh biscuits. Bit fatty even. Light sweet with deep bitter finish. Medium bodied. Even though itís a bit old itís still pretty damn good.

Zekada (269) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Aroma holds some hops, lime and citrus. Pours dark orange with a rich white head. Taste is nice though not very exciting and new. Palate is thin and easy. Overall a decent beer, though a bit boring.

Plovmand (6602) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Traded with madmitch76. It pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The aroma is high fruity hoppy with notes of gooseberry, citrus, crisp orange juice, light passion fruit and mango. Great balanced hoppy flavor. Loads of tropical fruit. Gooseberry, peach, mango and citrus peel. One of my favorite hops indeed!

Tselloufc88 (174) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Cloudy appearance, some carbonation. Aroma is of tropical fruits, pine, orange, some pineapple maybe? Taste is a pretty big hit of citrus, tangerine, tropical fruits and pine. Nice medium bitter finish. This is very refreshing and quite excellent.

JohnCook101 (349) - - AUG 24, 2014
Pours slightly hazy amber, small white head. Aroma is rich, fruity and a little floral. Flavour is a little earthy, good malt backbone, lots of sweet stone fruit and sour citrus to balance. A hint of pine, too. Medium bodied, very slightly oily, moderate and fine carbonation. Awesome.

ATulloch (123) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle from emporium. Pours a light golden with I small frothy head which lasts. Incredible fruity aromas, basically like smelling um bongo (on the button BeerCast_Rich) the taste is still fruity but more soapy with a hoppy pine Finish. Very drinkable for a 7.2% (well hidden)

Brewtique (10) - Macclesfield, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle from Brewtique, Macclesfield. After hearing many good things about this beer, I was very excited to try it. And lets say, it certainly didnít disappoint. A: This beer is very clear in the bottle. However, once the beer had been chilled slightly, it poured a mirky yellow due to chill haze (a somewhat signature appearance of all Kernel) with a small but tight head. S: Wow, this beer smells amazing. Tropical fruits, pineapple and citrus. Mosaic certainly sums up the aroma from this hop! T: After smelling profusely and tucking in, this beer holds up still. Fresh and very light taste of citrus and pineapple. No hint of the ABV at all, like drinking fruit juice. P: Nice and thin mouthfeel with a little carb, making this beer go down all to easy. O: Amazing IPA, easy to drink and packed full of flavour. Think alcoholic tropical juice. Well done Even.

Sjohnh (250) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
My favourite Kernel so far - I like the sherbet tropical fruit endowed by the Mosaic hops. Citrus kiwi, mango, passion fruit, fresh apple, tangerine. Light straw colour, little head, some lacing. Light / medium bodied. Bitter undercurrent is just right - not too strong. Very good.
