Very hazy gold - amber beer, little white head. Light palate, crispy and slightly dry. Creamy malt base, mild minerals. Stunning hops - lovely Nelson Sauvin like grape and gooseberry with a gang of tropical fruits backing them up - peach being most readily identifiable. Finishes light and crispy with medium bitterness. A belter!

harrisoni (13248) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle from brewery drunk at home. You drink a Kernel beer and you realise what hops were made for. Seriously just amazing. You almost take them for granted then you have one of these and your palate just jumps about and you go, yep, that’s just beautiful. Aroma is so intense and so tropical fruit flavour laden it’s stunning. Simcoe comes through so beautiful a hop. The soft citrus of the Amarillo, the aroma of the Nelson. Simcoe bitterness on the finish. I mean so fresh super fresh. The hops my god the hops. Not stupid overpowering, just fresh and super aromatic and tasty. Get out of here. This beer goes yard, out of the ballpark. Beautiful. Kernel have produced some stunning IPAs, this is up in the top echelon. Drunk in the space of 3 short songs, it was that good. Utterly sublime.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle at home in London - procured from the brewery a few days ago. Pours ever so slightly hazy gold with a strong, frothy off-white head. The aroma screams with juicy, ripening citrus, some mineral dryness, a bit of day-old cat urine. Medium sweet flavor with oodles of juicy citrus, touches of tropical fruits, more pee, enough bready malt base to hold it all together. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet and resinous to finish, dripping orange and papaya, softened pine needles, some further pee, hints of lime, tangerine. Delicious. Kernel on form.

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Heavy hoppy and moderate malty wonderfull powerfull aroma. Wondefull heavy hoppy flavor. Flowers and abricot dominating. Long heavy bitter finish. Creamy palale. World class.

Bsse biscuit and caramel malts. Flavours are juicy tropical fruit with bitter lemon and grapefruit. Herbal with spritzy yeast and hints of mint. Woody and dry with warming, peppery alcohol. Washes over the tongue. Excellent.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at home, thanks to Leighton for mueling this one from the brewery for me, 30/06/13. Hazed golden orange with a good sized frothy white head. Nose is juicy hops, sticky pine, bitter orange, tropical fruit sundae, light sugars. Taste comprises fresh hops, light minerals, mango, pine, tangerine, melon, tiny hint of soap. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, super drinkable fayre!

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2013
Half poured from tap at The Hanging Bat. Patchy surface to a cloudy, orange-gold body. Fresh and rather mild aromas of orange and tropical fruits. The taste follows the nose with succulent juicy fruits on a backbone of modest malty sweetness. Rounded and lingering bittersweet tail. Well bodied. Drinking pleasure, indeed (Edinburgh 07.08.2013).
