jerd16 (219) - 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.

tommann (2850) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours gold with a large head. Aroma is melon, papaya and pineapple. Taste has sweet pineapple and sherbet lemon to start with a strong bitter papaya finish. A little gassy.

330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average to huge, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Piney and citrusy hop aroma of only moderate intensity, caramel malty basis with a biscuit touch, lemon biscuit, a cautious touch of straw. Taste is hoppy with fruity hints of lemon, orange, orange zest, caramel malt basis with a touch of orange biscuit, minimally chalky.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head. Strong aroma of rich herbal hops, grass and strong grapefruit. Very rich flavour with strong herbal hops, fair amount of caramel malts, really strong and pungent grapefruit, grass, peach and orange peel. Medium bodied, rich mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes lingering bitter, fruity, rich with hoppy fumes and some alcohol. Excellent. Also, one of my favourite hop profiles.

Leighton (11841) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Keg at the brewery. Pours lightly hazed, dull yellow with a fine, foamy white head. The nose is filled with dank citrus fruits, lots of grapefruit, lemon, orange, pine needles. Medium sweet flavour with sticky, semi-ripe citrua fruits, sturdy pale sugars, nips of booze. Medium bodied with fine but filling carbonation. Very resinous to finish with lots more citrus fruits in addition to touches of tropical fruits, along with more pine needles, some alcohol warmth and rich pale malts. Wonderful.

Habanero (2749) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a small white, lacing head. Aroma of citrus fuits, peach, some pine and caramel notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A very nice and fresh IPA.
