JackMandarin (42) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Bottle from Luvians, St Andrews. Pours a deep amber. Aroma is the usual Kernel-grade burst of fresh hops. Skunky. Totally tropical taste! Nice mouthfeel. Lots of sweet malt to taste. Ripe tropical fruits. Strong bitterness. Beautifuuly balanced brew. Great IPA from The Kernel.

Smithld1 (18) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
Bottle at tap east. Bottled less than a month ago. Small persistent head. Well carbonated. Good but fading lacing. A typical kernel ipa. It does not disappoint but doesn’t hit quite the intense highs of other kernels - a high bar though. Smells better than it tastes.

Fashawn (373) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 3, 2015
Birra deliziosa,che mi lascia pienamente soddisfatto. Quel che voglio da una IPA, e kernel è sempre una garanzia. Birra bionda appena velata,con schiuma bianca fine e compatta abbastanza persistente. Al naso Jon è eccelsa,sento pochi agrumi, un po’ di fiori bianchi e tantissima resina. In bocca è diverso,confettura di arance,ribes, bel sapore dolce con una base biscottate che evolve gradualmente. Il finale è resinoso,poco pino,un po’ di terra però. Bello il passaggio,la birra è cremosa,corpo medio, buona la persistenza retroolfattiva come.il retrogusto che pulisce tutto. Ben fatto.

[6454-20140705] Tap. Pine orange lemon peel aroma. Hazy, pale orange yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy white. Buttery smooth orange pine hops flavour with a tangerine tart finish. Medium-full body. Delicious, very drinkable. (8/4/8/3/16) 3.9

AdiBeer (1902) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Aroma: floral hops, some citrus and pine. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, small, creamy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, heavy grassy flavours, citrus fruits again, dry finish. Overall: quite a nice IPA, yet there are better examples from this brewery. Pint at brewery, Bermondsey.
