Another great IPA from the Kernel. Strong lemon, pine, grapefruit flavours and a well rounded (a little sweet) body with a very smooth aftertaste. I prefer the Citra but this is still very, very good.

flying_pig (1548) - SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2013
The Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (330ml bottle, 3.20):
Floral notes & some strong pine, some bitterness and a helping of light, sweet malts and a touch of citrus. There is some tropical fruits, peach and a hint of grapefruit in this one as well.
A cloudy, orange amber colour with a thumb sized, bubbly white head on top that halves in size and settles leaving some nice lacing.
Bitter with a lot of pine, grapefruit and to a lesser extent tropical fruits. There is again a hint of malts, along with some caramel and some citrus too.
Very bitter with a creamy feel and a nice citrus tang to go along with the light medium carbonation and dry finish.

Good beer from The Kernel, not one of their best efforts but still a pretty good beer. It was more malty than I had been expecting for the style and the bitterness levels where quite high although the nice touches of caramel were good.

teddybeer (3712) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2013
On tap @ La Tape. Cloudy light orange colour with a white head, light carbonation and a nice lacework. Floarl and citrus hops dominate in the aroma with fruity hints. Flavor has a decent bitterness, resins and fruity notes are mainly present. The final is bittery with a good duration.

The_Osprey (7835) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013
Feb 2013 Cold bottle. No head at all. Not much up front flavour, aftertaste is astringent but the bitterness isnt quite so sharp as some IPAs this has a more rounded bitterness. Quite floral, bit of parma violets, not very fruity at all really which is a shame. Is actually slightly watery, which comes as a surprise. OK, mild, nothing special. (3.4)

April 2013 Another bottle. An inch of head with good retention. Slight cat urine smell. Taste is quite sweet and malty, a little parma violets still with resin, rich hoppy taste. Bitterness has died down given a couple of months in the bottle and I think that its improved actually. Or maybe the first bottle was a dodgy one. (3.8).

Average becomes 3.6.

rosenbergh (11475) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Draught at the La Tape, Madrid, Spain. Hazy orange colour with a small creamy white head. Fruity aroma with lots of exotic notes, hoppy bitterness and mild sweetness. Very tempting. The flavour is also very fruity but also very nice. Tasty. Exotic fruits, bitterness and malt. Very balanced. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gunnar (8882) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle from a trade with madmitch76. Bottled 8.1.2013 Pours almost clear dark golden with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of floral and fruity hops. Taste is moderate sweet initially, befor the hop parade kicks in and take over the show entirely, flowers and tropical fruit mix, oranges and lemons.Nice dry end, another bullseye from Kernel.
