Keg at Hanging Bat. Slightly hazy golden yellow pour, thin white head. Nice grapefruit, slight pine, barest pineapple, grassy hop nose. Big punchy grapefruit, slightly flinty, just a hint of sweet malts, big pine. Oily mouthfeel, long puckering grapefruit bitterness on the finish. A bit of a hop bomb, but very tasty.
Bottle. Classic Kernel IPA, lots of citrus, some oranges, zest, grapefruit notes backed by solid bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. EdKing (2587) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Over the years as my tastes in beers have changed and developed, I’ve taken a backseat with the big new world hop IPAs and pale ales. However, every now and again I pick up a Kernel or two. Very glad I did with this. Bottle from The Kernel. Pours rich looking rusty orange amber, slight haze. There’s some bits of stuff in it. Minerally deposits and yeast. Nose is big citrus, orange and grapefruit fruit and peel, fizzy orange pop, orange sherbert, earthiness, some tropical fruit, pine. Taste is big fruit citrus orange and grapfruit with the orange fizzy pop thing going on. Sweet orange fruit and grapefruit peel bitterness with pine and minerals, earthiness. Fruit in this is so fresh. Superb beer. Wish it was a regular. ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2017

Bottle from Dranken Geers. Hazy golden body with a small white head. Tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, hops, sweetness, alcohol notes. Expected a bit more from this. Still good though. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2016
33cl bottled 02/06/16, Geers. - Juicy classic c-hop oils both freshly doused and boiled down into a citrus peel and wet pine astringency accomodated by a pillowy-smooth light English ale body. - Fresh passionfruit, pineapple and sweet lime aroma smell like they have real fruity substance opposed to the airfreshener category of PoMo IPAs. Tight even taut citric and resinous flavours offer a more advanced take on the international West Coast IPA, coating hop oil juiciness with pith resins. Clean and on point, with a bit of a subtle malt surplus. Ktwse (4897) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Pours murky Kernel amber (eg dirty peach) with low white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, pine, orange and tangerine. Taste is mellow fruit sweet with a light bitter finish. Not as through and through sweet as some of the recent Kernel IPAs have been. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. evergreen0199 (3369) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2016
