Keg at York Tap (about a week ago--I believe it is gone). The colour is quite orange and has a white head. Just like the other Kernel beer Ive tried, this one is not shy with the fruit features--loads of juicy & sticky tropical fruits ready for eating. I will make it a point to buy loads of bottles from this brewery.

Keg. Amber/orange with white head, good lacing. Loads of tropical fruits in the aroma. Taste: Tropical fruits, hop oils. So much pineapple--like Im back home drinking Lotus.

Theydon_Bois (17569) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Poured at home from a 330ml bottle (Jan 12) into tulip style glass. Pours a rich murky/fully hazed orange, you cannot see your fingers through the glass! A small white head forms but soon dies off to a gentle puddle on top of the beer. Wonderful hop and pine smells assault the nose along with citrus fruit, predominately grapefruit. The taste is all hops, citrus fruit largely grapefruit as per the nose, maybe a sweeter fruit flavour in the background possibly apricot and also a sweet carmel undercurrent, but very subtle and understated. Great mouthfeel this beer massages the throat, medium bodied with minimal carbonation leading to a bitter-sweet semi-dry aftertaste.

Draft at Euston Tap, London. Burnt orange pour. Another winner from Kernel. Juicy grapefruity hop aroma. big bitterness, grapefruit flavor. Cant believe they are making these in England. Outstanding

gunnar (8206) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours almost clear golden with a small white creamy head. Aroma is grainy with traces of honey and citrussy/grassy hops. Taste is strong citrussy hops bordering astringent, dry and hoppy end.

DanielBrown (4393) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Thin mouthfeel and no head. Smells like lime fruit pastilles - hence delicious. Smooth, oily hop juice. Gets nicer across the tonguem leaving a deeply bitter finish, which is satisfying indeed. Suffers in comparison to Double SCCANS which was sampled prior, but extremely good nonetheless.

imdownthepub (13553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Amber with white head. Intense, dry bitter orange along with grapefruit skin and zest. Lovely long palate, really very decent indeed.

STEVIE_NIX (35) - - JUL 14, 2012
330ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Light aroma of tropical fruits, typical of this style, but lighter than expected. Pours a hazy light orange with thin white head. Taste was a very subtle mix of mango and pineapple with hint of citrus hops, fairly light body for a beer of this strength but with a bitter finish. Not bad really, just not as good as other Kernel beers and other Galaxy IPAs (see Brewdog)
