Taste, grapefruit, pines, roasted malt, tropical fruits, resin. Nice long hoppy finish. Very tasty black IPA. FatPhil (16924) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2012
330ml bottle (Bottle Shop, Canterbury)harrystrill (91) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Fruity aroma, malty too. Quite crisp, carbonation high. Biting bitterness perhaps a bit OTT. Started good, but was too aggressive. Prefer most US black IPAs that I’ve had to this, as they tend to have higher drinkability.
Not an IPA fan but this I like, the usual over flowery bitterness is just not there, light and fresh tasting you would never realize the abv from the flavour CraftBeerNick (2730) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle at home, 16th September 2012. Pours a huge head, irritating. Similar to the other Kernel black ipas. Good stuff Scopey (15471) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle at home, from the Kernel Brewery. It pours very dark brown, with a medium beige head. The nose is roasted malt, charcoal, earth, zesty citrus, bitter-sweet aspect and pine. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, earth, pine, coffee, citrus pith, grapefruit and some dark fruit perhaps, with a bitter, roasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Quite a lot of citrus character coming through. A solid black IPA.

Black with off-white head. Aroma of coffee and spices. Flavour with fruit and roasted malt with solid hop bitternes. EdKing (2640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle from The Kernel brewery. Cloudy dark brown with a hint of rustiness, off white big foam head. Nose is big pine, musty malt, tropical fruit, papaya, mango, lime citrous. Taste is pine, bitter green hops, eucalyptus, citrous sour, bit of the tropical fruit but it’s drowned out by stronger bitter flavours. There’s also a dryness, chalky on tongue, earthy, stoney. This is a strong bold black ipa. Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 15, 2012
