oh6gdx (20616) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Bottled (thanks Evin!). Amber/pale copper colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some quite bitter wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, some caramelly and some sweet malty notes. Quite balanced and nice, but alternative for being a Kernel one.

Very hazy brown - amber beer, big cream coloured head. The head has a nice sherbet hop orange - lemon, Centennial I would guess? Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Creamy malt. Bitter orange pith. Tangy orange marmalade. Strong green hops with zesty lemon underneath. Pretty bitter finish - the eyelids were starting to twitch - and it lingers. Minerals. A tangy hop treat.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours red-gold, almost clear, with a foamy, off-white head. Toasty pine in the nose, some berries and ripe citrus. Nice flavor, medium sweet, with some under ripe grapefruit, dirt, pine, and tangy dark citrus. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sticky, resinous finish, lots of dirty bitterness, plenty of citrus rind, pine sap, grapefruit, mild wood, and toast. A very nice twist on the usual Kernel IPA.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Served fom a 330ml bottle into a tulip style glass (drank Apr ’12) this beer poured a ’slightly’ cloudy dark amber/brown with tints of red with a thick off-white head. A hoppy/fruity aroma greets the nose allied to a little pine and a pinch of malt. The taste matches the nose, throw in some citrus flavours, notably sweet orange/mandarin and a good dose of pine and you arrive at a most enjoyable IPA. Mouthfeel was good, medium to low carbonation and a bitter - dry but slightly sweet finish. Overall - another good quality IPA form Kernel.

Scopey (7054) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle and Keg at the Kernel Brewery. It pours cloud dark red, with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is dough, farmyard, leaf, hay, raw hop and a touch of bubblegum. The taste is pine, resin, oily hop, leaf, mandarin, tangerine, marmalade and hay, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well balanced and flavoursome. Delicious!

KnutAlbert (6123) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2012
Hazy red, fluffy head. Fine IPA - pines, pepper, fruit, dryness. But it does not stand out compared to some of their other IPAs.

gunnar (5457) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 6, 2012
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours deep golden/amber with a huge frothy off-white head. Strong piney hop aroma, sweet orange and marmelade as well. Taste is moderate sweet, thick and sticky, a good body supporting the overall bitter beer, with loads of piney and resiny hops, dry juicy grapefruit. Lingering light sweet and dry bitter, very good and intense.
