leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with an off white head. Aromas are woody, herbal and tropical fruit with creamy oak and pine. Spicy with pineapple and grapefruit. Peppery alcohol with bready yeast. Flavours are syrupy pineapple and lemon with spritzy yeast and woody pine. Some seawater with a spicy, dry finish. Very good. KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2013
Bottled. Deep orange-golden color, lacy. Minerally, grapefruit zest nose, with honey and biscuits. Sweet, juict grapefruit flavor, tropical fruits and pineapple, tingly peppery finish. Nice fruit. A bit thin and light.

Oro carico bella schiuma persistente fruttato agrumato erbaco secca pompelmo rosa DruncanVeasey (8239) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2013
330ml. Lightly misted gold with a slim fine head. Aroma of mango, flowers, sweet red apple, anise-like hints and outspoken alcohol. Intense, dry, a little warm and boozy with a soapy floral character; pepper and late pale nutty notes. Very bitter, very husky. Doesn’t quite convince.
jackl (8213) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market. Consumed on the train up to Darlington. The pour’s a hazy light orange color with a modest white head. The aroma’s woody pine, fresh forest, notes or orange marmalade and a bit of rustic, salty brine. The taste is tropical fruit squash (mango, orange, pineapple). Hints of cheese and baked sweet bread. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent beer! Another solid effort from the Kernel boys.
The_Osprey (8211) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Jan 2013 - This is quite a nice IPA, similar to but better than, say, the Stone IPAs from California. Has a nice balance. The flavours are typical - florally grapefruitty maybe a bit more malt than I’m used to from Kernel which is good. Drinkable as new-style IPAs go. Towards the end I picked up a tiny bit of pineapple (the holy grail of IPA in my opinion) but it was only slight and fleeting TimE (5953) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2013
Light amber golden color. Pineapples, pears, like a fruit cup of hops. Tons of hops, again well defined hop character that is a fruit cup, but really lacks a backbone. Not bad, but I could use more malt. JohnRMurdoch (4924) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2013
330ml bottle from Cornelius. Standard hazy amber brown Kernel IPA with not much head. Very sweet resinous hop aroma. Fruity pine hop flavour. Hoppy aftertaste. Another decent Kernel IPA. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle at the brewery. Amber orange. White bubbly head. Aroma, grapefruit, tropical fruit, bit of booze. Taste fruity, nice bitterness, but not so full on. Orange, tropical fruit, floral. Very nice.
