GoddamnNoise (123) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2016
The Kernel IPA Galaxy 33cl. bottle @ Home Aroma: very intense and nice aromas of mango, passion fruit, tropical fruits, fruits. Hints of grapefruit, citrus, tangerine, malt, pine. A not very pleasant aroma appears when swirled and warmed. Appearance: light yellow straw color with slightly off-white head. Slightly under average foam thickness and retention. A bit of Brussels lacing. Very hazy. Taste: low sweetness, medium-to-high bitterness, low sourness. Very good flavors of mango, passion fruit and tropical fruits. Palate: low-to-medium body, watery-to-oily texture, low carbonation, long and very dry bitter finish of tropical fruits, mango and passion fruit. Hints of grapefruit, tangerine and pine. Overall: This beer is definitely walking on the bitter side, but despite of its bitterness its very pleasant. A good IPA, the touch from the Galaxy hops is really good. Very good appearance, aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, passion fruit, mango and fruits. Really good.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2016 Wow. Passion fruit, black current mango smells. Oh god the taste is awesome Best kernel Ive had by far. rerated to see if it stands. Yes it does. Tasted like above. Sweet and bitter though, had a taste like a sherbert ufo with the rice paper, quickly became accustomed to the sweet/bitterness and the tropical fruit and ribina prevailed. Glad i have couple more

Keg at Craft Beer Calling at the Wylam brewery. Pours cloudy yellow with a rim of white froth. Nice grapefruit aroma. The taste is like grapefruit juice but with a big bitter finish. Very good.

The_Osprey (7835) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2016
330ml bottle at home as The Kernel India Pale Ale Galaxy, 6.9%, one month old. Ive been on the lookout for this one for some time! Pours a lovely vibrant fruit juice orange, hazy, opaque with a bubbly white head which endures and leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is quite toned down, muted tropical fruits, touch dank. Body is a touch frothy, tingly carbonation. Taste is grassy, straw, dusty, floral, flint, grapefruit astringency. Pretty juicy yet woody. Very tasty IPA all told. Gets better the more you drink.
