Bottle picked up at Sourced Market, Victoria. It pours hazy orange with a medium white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, juicy, mango, sticky peach, apricot, touch of dank grassy action and brioche. The taste is crisp, bitter, pretty juicy, mango, peach, papaya, pine, dank, weed, light spring onion, some spice and a touch of alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty gear. jamestulloch (4471) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle from Salt Horse. Hazy amber body with a thin white head that quickly fades. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of biscuit, earth and Lager. Flavour of steel, sorrel and grapefruit pith. Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Not up the The Kernel’s usual IPA standard. tiong (7835) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2016
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail. Bottled 17.10.16. Pours clear orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, herbal hops, grass and pine. Taste is crisp, herbal hoppy and tropical fruity with some grass, pine, citrus and caramely malts.

Bottle. Tall Boys, Leeds. Hazy gold. Lovely Kernel swede. Nose has ripe grapefruit and pulpy orange. Dry grain malt. Doesn’t pop out of the glass, particularly. Tastes really good, though. Lovely balance of grain and hop. Smooth, juicy mouthfeel. Fruity, zesty bitter finish.
MrTipple (7309) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Light bitter tropical fruits, mango, pale grain malts, wet straw. Hazy, pale gold, medium, frothy, white head. Light bitter. More, lightly bitter tropical fruits, unripe mango, initially bitter citrus fruits turning quite juicy, soft carbonation, medium bodied, bitter finish.
