Amber/orange with white head, good lacing.
Loads of tropical fruits in the aroma.
Taste: Tropical fruits, hop oils. So much pineapple--like I’m back home drinking Lotus. pricey290483 (819) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
another fantastic beer from the kernel i really cant talk this brewer up enough just wish it was more available in hertfordshire realalechamp (41) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
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 I’ve 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. DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
330ml bottle from....somewhere in Cov in the Oerbier balloon. My rating is based on a whole bottle poured clear (initially), not an eggcupful of dregs. Dusted gold with a fine-moussed foam. Gets a 1.4 for the nose alone; Tropical Starburst, passion fruit, urinal, celery, blackcurrant, spliff, lady’s neck. This is a beautiful beer exemplfying everything that I love about English beer at the moment; massive, perfumed, new world hop exoticsim; malt-soft, cask-like condition, irresistable drinkability. Diaphanous malts not smothering the hops. I think it tastes like galangal, a whole pack of Tropical Starburst chews crammed in your gob at once, Rubicon Guava poured over peanuts, Darjeeling, celery, passion fruit.....but don’t listen to me. Comparisons undersell it’s beauty. Good as faultless. Leighton (22284) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours a hazy, matte gold with a small, foamy white head. The aroma is - oh, boy - damn fine. Lots of greasy pine, wet grass, some tree bark and citrus rind. Flavor is medium to heavy sweet with some sugary bread, orange juice, subtle yeast, salty sweat, floral hops, pine. Medium bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Mild warming finish, very modest sweet dough, resinous pine, juicy citrus, flowers, honeysuckle. Incredibly delicious and dangerously drinkable. One of the Kernel’s finest IPAs.

Pours a hazy orange colour and has a citrus and tropical fruit aroma and has a fruity hoppy and zesty taste a brilliant ipa just as good as the scgans. teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 23, 2016
33cl bottle picked at the brewery. It pours a turbid apricot color with a small white head. Aroma is rich juicy fruity and danky with notes of tangerines, apricots, melon, weed. Taste is also fully juicy fruity danky with more apricots tangerine melon grass weed grapefruit. Medium bodied with creamy texture and good carbonation. Overall, IPA perfection
