CraftBeerNick (1003) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle at home, 21st January 2012. Aroma is biscuit grapefruit, pours slightly murky with a small head. Taste is full on, more sweet than many of the other Kernel IPAs with a thicker mouth feel, not so typically kernel. Like this one though, taste is getting more to my idea of a DIPA.

sebletitje (6916) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
33cl bottle from DeMolen biershop. BB 22-07-2013, opened xmas day, another ridiculously good beer, these guys at Kernel rock! Dorée allant sur un orangé brumeux avec la lie, col blanc épais. Arôme citronné, houblonné frais, aspect de jus de pamplemousse, feuille de thé, ananas, et mandarine. En bouche, houblonné avec un super palais tropical frais, citron et autres agrumes très agréable, pamplemousse sans être dans le trop amer. Aspect boisé presque épicé tel le cèdre. Herbacé avec un malt balancé qui reste en retrait.
