From keg at The Kernel. Good white head . Nice golden colour. Overwhelming aroma of tropical fruit - mango and passion fruit. I donít recall an IPA with such an intensive and beautiful aroma. The freshnness of the beer /served two weeks before schedule because it was so good already/ is stunning. In taste more tropical fruit , citrus , and long pleasant bitterness balanced by lovely malt make it a IPA fan paradise. A beer of my dreams but only when served fresh on the spot. If only I lived in London...

Bottle 6.9% - hazy gold with slim white head. Aroma of citrus hops, tropical fruit, mango, orange, sweet malts. Taste doesnít disappoint, stunningly good IPA. Taste is citrus hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Up there with the very best IPAs. Excellent.

Leighton (10543) - 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 - itís 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 doiní it right.

Wow, this has to be one of the best IPAís i have ever drunk. Great aroma, beautiful color and a very nice and thick head. Smell is overwhelmingly hoppy and the taste isnít far behind. Masterpiece.

Brewtique (9) - Macclesfield, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014 does not count
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.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Mesmerizing that one hop could produce so much complexity. Mango, grapefruit, some floral notes and some nebulous...blueberry??? Thatís a first. Beautifully smooth. Has some herbal notes up front which are consumed by mango and tropical fruits. Some sweet malt in the undergrowth. Finishes with quite a soft bitterness. Thereís also a weird minty quality on the back-end. What an individual beer...maybe an individual hop. Iím taking a shot in the dark and deducing that that is why it is named ímosaicí.

Kernal never cease to come up with the goods. My husbands favourite brewery that is well stocked at the bottle shop in Canterbury.

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.
