RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Big gooseberry and kiwi fruit aroma. Very earthy and dry but with a long lingering peaches and cream finish. Smooth with late orange notes and just another mighty Kernel beer

bytemesis (6726) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottled June 4 - thanks a ton to Ben! Pours hazy amber gold with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is citrus, tropical, pine resin, spruce tip, cat piss. Flavor is about the same, quite resinous. Little sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Pretty darn good, but I bet it was better in mid June!

danlo (2552) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber colour, foam white head leaving some lacing and aroma of tropical fruits, citrus & pine hoppiness. Taste is malt caramel with melon, juicy mango, passionfruit, orange & pine hoppy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter clean finish. Really well balanced, very drinkable IPA.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 04.06.13 - Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma of floral hops, exotic fruits, biscuity malts and juicy notes. Taste is hoppy, juicy and bitter with loads of floral notes, exotic fruits and hints of biscuity malts. Finish is juicy, fruity and hoppy with some warming alcohol and some stuffy notes. Nice, tasty, but slightly unbalanced IPA.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
33cl bottle. light orange pour. aroma gives heady juicy tropical fruit -tangerine, mango, peach. Taste gives plenty of juicy fruit (sweet tangerine and peach), light passionfruit, quite a bit of herby stuff, light pine, bit of menthol. Standard kernel malt body - beautiful light biscuit & cake dough - lets the hops take centre stage. Lingering pine and pithy orange/grapefruit bitterness.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours an unclear copper orange colour with a white head. Aroma of fresh strong pineapple, herbal notes, pine and sweet toffee. Flavour is full-on floral bitter with sweet toffee, licorice root(!), strong pineapple, mango, lemongrass, some biscuit and grapefruity tanginess. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lovely warming, fruity, floral finish with strong bitterness and surprisingly heavy sweetness. What a treat.
