3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London. A bit explosive, surprisingly, with more sediment than I’ve ever seen in a Kernel beer. Very, very hoppy, tons of resinous bitterness throughout, mild toasty bread. Light to medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Heavy resinous grass that lasts. Seems like something may be a touch off. As it is it’s just pretty average.

Unclear matt medium to dark orange colour with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, orange - citrus, manngo. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long to average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Murky amber pour with a mid range off white head. Snout had plenty of juicy citrus and grassy hop on show. Flavour wasn’t quite the anticipated hop fest, with slightly more prominent malts jostling for position. Dried out considerably towards the finish. Not quite an all out belter, as I’ve come to expect from the Kernel, but thoroughly decent all the same.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
#4800. 500ml bottle from Alexander Wines, Coventry. Misted gold with a fine white slick; some pretty nasty detritus towards the bottom of the bottle, but it’s all part of the fun. Lovely, stewed, resinous nose of satsuma, pine, breakfast juice, tropical Starburst and strawberry Chewits. Flavour not quite as dripping with hop loveliness as the 5C; huskier, drier, more malt-driven with a monkey nut-like base note enveloped by bitter, sour sop hoppage. Very tasty indeed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Hazy/opaque orange amber, thick creamy head. Big pine, floral, hint of passion fruit and sandalwood nose. Dry mineral palate, dry citrus, pine, hint of bready malt, chalky slightly resinous finish. Super-dry but nice enough.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Kernel Brewery. It pours murky orange-brown, with a bubbly white head. The nose is earth, farmyard and juicy orange citrus. The taste is orange, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, brown bread, earth, resin and some solid bitterness, with a dry finish. Medium body and low-medium carbonation. A very flavoursome Kernel IPA.

22nd January 2012
Hazy amber beer, good white head. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Grapefruit bitterness, a little orange marmalade. Whispers of other fruits, most noticeably mango. Semi dry finish with a pleasant bitter linger and some stinging nettles! Nicely joined up and a remarkable amount of flavour packed in!
