Great selection of hops in the hop-dominated fresh IPA you expect from the kernel. Flavours of citrus and exotic fruit with some grassy notes to give a little tang. Deliciously malty and bitter.

EdKing (2265) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle drunk at Hawksmoor Seven Dials. This was pale amber, hazy, large soft white foam head. Nose is lots of citrous, lemon and grapefruit, bit of lime, floral, pine, minerals, little flintiness. Taste is bold citrous fruit forward, pine, lemon, grapefruit. Slight earthy and flinty, but with the fruit leading. Lovely beer.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2014 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Vini, Birre, Ribelli 2014. Golden, hazy, little bubbles. Nose is thick Kernel yeast, fruity but with lots of yeast. Taste is Kernel yeast, milky yeast dough, hops are mild, mainly just bitter in the back. Too old? Taste is thick milky Kernel dough yeast.

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle sample @ Vini, Birre, Ribelli ’14, Bruxelles. Dorée légèrement trouble, col blanc. Arôme est divin, présentant un super bouquet houblonné fruité tirant vers le tropical avec une petite note résineuse de l’Apollo. Palais est juste parfait, léger et complexe mettant bien en avant les houblons pour que chacun y trouvent sa place. Pointe tropicale, le tout est finement sec en toute fin de bouche. Pointe d’aiguille de pin, fine amertume fleuri en toute fin de bouche. Le Nelson reste plus présent que le Citra et on retrouve ce profil de vin blanc.

Keg. Beautiful dark orange. Thinnish white head. Incredibly sticky, piney. Big sweet tropical fruits and a throttling punch of hops.

3fourths (8879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2012
draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. amazingly soft and delicate hop acid nose (dried grass, light unsweet citrus fruit). dry body, perfectly matched carobnation, malt body and hop acid. quaffable, full and round carbonation froth without any malt goopiness or heaviness. amazing stuff, and probably the favorite from the festival.
