Bottle, cheers our MesandSim! Poured a murky orange amber gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is awesome, hops, orange, citrus, malts. Flavour is more lovely hops, peachy, sherbert, lovely smooth finish. More brilliant work from Kernel, loved it.

erickok (5404) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2014
Fresh and aromatic, super fresh even. Yellow fruit, pine apple, sweet, floral, simple spring time in my mind. Smooth and we’ll balanced bitterness actually, light malt backup. Spot in palate. Delicious. (33cl bottle from De Molen, brought by Bertanne)

Lonick (1320) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Similar to many Kernel IPA’s, fruity with peaches, grapes, watermelon and grapefruit on the first taste. Then a citrus sharpness at the end. Nice.

Always fresh, thick, cloudy and sharply bitter but smooth from a kernel IPA. Lots of pine and citrus here from the hops and a little caramel sweetness in the malt too. Delicious

Dedollewaitor (15559) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2013
Rating # 12800. Bottle @ Alesbymail. Pours cloudy golden orange with a stable creamy head. Nose is amazing. Fruit punch - hoppy and exotic. Shiiitt. Flavor is red grapefruit, pine and citrus. All about the hops - and they are really fresh and lovely. I am almost brought to tears.

olio (9296) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Clear golden color with a medium sized head. Fruity and hoppy on the nose, some resin and caramel malts also, a bit stuffy, probably due to Motueka hops. Flavor is malty and mildly fruity with resinous hops, wood and grape fruits. Bitter malty palate, and again, a bit stuffy. Decent anyway.

330ml bottle. Hazy copper with a small head. Aroma is distinctly floral and zesty. Flavours of tropical fruits, clementine, a little grass, perhaps light herbal notes. Quite sweet initially leading to a moderately bitter finish. Very nicely balanced. Carbonation is moderate and fine. Mouthfeel is slightly slick. Another excellent beer from the Kernel.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 15.07.2013 - Pours clear copper orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of exotic fruits, grassy notes, floral hops and citrus with some crisp caramely maltiness. Taste is sweetish, floral, fruity, exotic, citrusy and grassy with some crisp maltiness. Finish is crisp, hoppy and fruity. Okay, quite good IPA.

Idiosynkrasie (6420) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey, dark golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Resinous, herbal, fruity, hoppy aroma, caramel malty background with a touch of forest honey. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, herbal hoppy, a touch of pine, slightly diluted fruit notes, bitter hoppy finish. Relatively widespread hop flavours, slightly unspecific, not overly intense.
