bunget (844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
On tap at Craft Beer Co. in London. Cloudy orange body, medium white head with good retention. Aroma of orange candies, grapefruit, caramel and mangoes. Taste of orange jam, lots of grapefruit zest, pine needles. Great, but I found it very similar to their Pale Ale.

Iznogud (2505) - CROATIA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml from the brewery. Pours cloudy yellow wo orange with medium lasting white head. Great fruity aroma, tropical fruit all over the place. Fruity, hoppy, citrus, peach, solid malt backbone. Sweetish with lasting bitter finish. Seemed very fresh. Really great IPA.

As always from the kernel, fresh. Great hops - grape, pineapple and exotic fruit in the taste. Light enough - a little cloudy - in the body. Will look out for an IPA from the kernel with these hops.

bartlebier (3425) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2016
33cl bottled 11/2015, Geers. Pours a drab beige amber, nice organically creamy foamcap. Sweet in the nose: green grape Delmonte cocktail, pineapple candy, maracuya peel, paprika, whiff of chalk. Taste makes an onset of translating bitter aromatics into flavour, then slips on: gooseberry compote, whiff of vegetable, unripe fruit resins like licking lychee peel insides, vegetal spice with an underlying "overcooked" sweetness. Lingering bitter finish. - Not as entirely juicy or dialed in as expected, yet enjoyable. (Preceded by, with ample water rinse: Duvel 2016 HBC).

gegwilson (3206) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle from House of the Trembling Madness. Pours hazy amber with a frothy white head. Huge hoppy aroma. Tropical fruit with pineapple, mango and passionfruit. The taste is more of the same over a nice caramel background. Some light spice too. Excellent as always from the Kernel.

danlo (2558) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2016
330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy brownish-yellow amber colour, creamy white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of juicy passionfruit & resinous hops. Taste is malt caramel with tropical fruit, floral citrus, woody pine, hoppy and earthy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry hoppy bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA.

Keg at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden, London (November 2015). A hazy orange/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Rich, hoppy, malty, tropical fruit aroma. Tastes the same, hoppy, malty, tropical fruit, citrus fruit, mango, slightly dank. Usual quality effort from the Kernel, nice IPA..
