Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2013
Tap at Moeder Lambic. Light yellow with medium snowy white head. NOSE : tart, strong lemon peel, pine, pomelo peel. Soap and nail polish. SIP : creamy with medium carbonation. Moderate sweet that is overpowered by strong citrus aromas. It burns with pine and zest till the end. The bitterness and citrus seed like dryness lasts for a long time. OVERALL : overpowered by hop aromas this IPA has a great body to go with.

Bill Becker (183) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Nice cloudy yellow orange appearance thanks to the bottle conditioning. A goo 2 finger head of foam to boot. Big piney and some grapefruit aromas in the nose. Very damn hoppy. Ditto in the taste. All hoppy, no malty that my palate can detect. Great mouthfeel. This is a very hoppy bitter brew and I like it.

jerd16 (130) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Aroma is grapefruit, little pineapple, piney background. Pours a lovely hazy golden colour with soapy, fluffy, brilliant white head. Taste fell beneath Kernel’s very high standards, even more so when you consider this was an IPA. It just feels to0 lightweight for an IPA. It has that very familiar silky smooth Kernel-patented mouth-feel but its very light in body and the citrus and resin evaporate too quickly. Those subdued notes vanish into the abyss to be replaced by a lingering bitterness.
