yespr (45495) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2013
33 cl bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a fully gone head. Aroma is pine and solid grapefruity. Bitter, solid hoppy and grapefruity. Lingering fruity, peachy and grapefruity finish. Ends dry and bitter.

330 ml bottle. Bottled on 31/10/13. BB 28/02/14. From alesbymail.com.
The colour is cloudy light brownish amber with a small off-white head. Pine, resin and citrus in hops, bread and grain in malt and mild alcohol (not a bad thing) in the aroma. The flavour is... yikes... it’s very sweet, bitter and strong. The alcohol is very much present. Very low carbonation. Some bun dough in the aftertaste. Not very tasty mostly because of the over sweetness and alcohol.

jamestulloch (4114) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Hazy golden body with no head, no carbonation and no lacing - all in all, it’s nae the bonniest. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel and tinned orange. Flavour is sweet, boozy and lacking balance. The harshness of the alcohol overwhelms the fruity hops. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Almost no carbonation fizz, which I feel this needs to lift the sweetness. A swing and a miss, which (thankfully) doesn’t happen often for The Kernel.

brontebeach (184) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Never tried the 4c but clearly I have tried the double 4c. Pours from a bottle light amber with a head that thins quickly. Delicious tangerine nose, slightly thin in the mouth (probably a compliment for this strength and style of beer) but smooth and balanced. Lasting follow through with a delicate aftertaste of yup tangerine. The lack of carbonation works for this brew.

tiong (7305) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 31.10.13 - Pours dark orange with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma of sweet herbal notes, grass, citrus and pine, caramely malts and toffee. Taste is malty, sweetish and hoppy with herbal notes, citrus and hints of caramel, grass and toffee Finish is smooth, sweetish and malty with bitter hoppiness and warming alcohol. Okay, quite sweet and slick double IPA, but I prefer the regular version. Perhaps could’ve used some more carbonation.

cgarvieuk (24520) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle at home... Hazy amber... Bubbly white head... Soft dry cats piss orange... Very juicy fruits... Big floral tones... Dry toffee

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Hazy gold no head. Toffee and some hop. No good carbonation. Some pineapple fruit. Not as hoppy as I anticipated.

daniele (9063) - ITALY - DEC 14, 2013
poca schiuma poco persistente agrumato resina piuttosto piatta bel amaro nn molto corpo amaro piuttosto lungo nel finale alcool abbastanza nascosto

olio (10287) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear orange color with barely a head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, quite floral too, caramel malts, wood, grassy notes and some resinous hops. Flavor is also sweet with caramel malts, some orange, pineapple and citrus, resinous hops and subtle biscuits. Almost no carbonation at all, slick sweet palate. Don’t know if the low carbonation (or actually lack of) was intentional but I’d prefer more. Very drinkable though.

Scopey (14742) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle at the Kernel. It pours golden amber with a small bubbly white head. The nose is stewed orange, tinned apricot, orange chewits, booze, pine, resin, refreshers and sherbet. The taste is rich, bitter, stewed orange, varnish, resin, wood, booze, fanta, grapefruit, toast, peppery kick, with a dry, very bitter finish. Medium body, low carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. A bit hot and chewy. A bit underwhelming... Hopefully this will get better with a bit of time in bottle.
