I had high hopes for this one, as Im a big fan of the Kernels IPAs and pales, but it fell slightly short for me. Still a lovely beer, but I would have liked the flavours turned up just a notch. Plenty of much better examples of the style out there.

Inbreak (4860) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2016 17.11.2016, tap @ Cerveceria Arte&Sana:
Nice slightly fizzy-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry roasted, weeds, old leafs, roasted grain, lawn, minerals, old moss, wet hay, paper, hints of caramel and licorice. Taste is slightly dry mineraly, weeds, minerals, bark, old leafs, paper, dark malts, harsh hops, old lawn, cardboard, pine needles, hints of soap. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

romanstep (326) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 1, 2016
W nosie średnio intensywnie, słodkie cytrusy, aromaty leśne. Barwa czarna z pojedynczymi miedzianymi refleksami, piana wysoka. W smaku wytrawne, dominują nuty leśne i żywiczne, dalej cytrusy w postaci grejpfruta, w tle trochę kawy i gorzkiej czekolady. Goryczka średnia żywiczno-grejpfrutowa. Dobre. Butelka do 03.02.2017
Earlier Rating: 3/26/2016 Total Score: 4.2
W nosie głwnie aromaty chmielowe, białe winogrona, cytrusy, i coś jakby truskawki nie wiem czy to zasługa chmielu Nelson Sauvin, na końcu trochę prażonego słonecznika. W sumie aromat bardzo subtelny. Bawa ciemnobrązowa, prawie czarna, piana bardzo drobna, super oblepia szkło. W smaku średnio wytrawne, cytrusowe, żywiczne, pźniej trochę kawowo-czekoladowe. Goryczka wyraźna, palona i trochę popiołowa. Wysycenie dość wysokie przez co piwo jest stosunkowo lekkie. Kernel to jednak europejska czołwka w piwach z użyciem nowofalowych chmieli. Szkoda że są to piwa u nas tak trudno dostępne. Butelka do 19.05.2016

anstei (1365) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from Beersnmore. Grassy hops with a little roast aroma. Lots but very smooth and silky carbonation leading into sweet-ish stout-ish blackness. Medium body. Grassy hops are present throughout, even on the palate. A bit juicy, relaxed bitterness. Nice balance though. Beautiful!

allanmb (199) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016
Pours translucent black with medium off-white head. Aromas of nice chocolate malt and citrus hops. Fine carbonation but decent body. Taste is roasted malt, pine hops and slight soapiness. Medium dry and light-medium bitter. Very nice black IPA but not quite as good as Black Betty
