Very hazy gold - amber beer, little white head. Light palate, crispy and slightly dry. Creamy malt base, mild minerals. Stunning hops - lovely Nelson Sauvin like grape and gooseberry with a gang of tropical fruits backing them up - peach being most readily identifiable. Finishes light and crispy with medium bitterness. A belter!

Leighton (20790) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle at home in London - procured from the brewery a few days ago. Pours ever so slightly hazy gold with a strong, frothy off-white head. The aroma screams with juicy, ripening citrus, some mineral dryness, a bit of day-old cat urine. Medium sweet flavor with oodles of juicy citrus, touches of tropical fruits, more pee, enough bready malt base to hold it all together. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet and resinous to finish, dripping orange and papaya, softened pine needles, some further pee, hints of lime, tangerine. Delicious. Kernel on form.

Bottle at home, thanks to Leighton for mueling this one from the brewery for me, 30/06/13. Hazed golden orange with a good sized frothy white head. Nose is juicy hops, sticky pine, bitter orange, tropical fruit sundae, light sugars. Taste comprises fresh hops, light minerals, mango, pine, tangerine, melon, tiny hint of soap. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, super drinkable fayre!

Bottle from brewery drunk at home. You drink a Kernel beer and you realise what hops were made for. Seriously just amazing. You almost take them for granted then you have one of these and your palate just jumps about and you go, yep, thats just beautiful. Aroma is so intense and so tropical fruit flavour laden its stunning. Simcoe comes through so beautiful a hop. The soft citrus of the Amarillo, the aroma of the Nelson. Simcoe bitterness on the finish. I mean so fresh super fresh. The hops my god the hops. Not stupid overpowering, just fresh and super aromatic and tasty. Get out of here. This beer goes yard, out of the ballpark. Beautiful. Kernel have produced some stunning IPAs, this is up in the top echelon. Drunk in the space of 3 short songs, it was that good. Utterly sublime.

Scopey (14202) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from Kernel. It pours clear gold with a medium white head. The nose is sweet tangerine, mango, passion fruit, pineapple, sponge cake and muffin. The taste bitter-sweet, sweet orange, juicy tropical fruit, tinned pineapple, peppery edge, touch of alcohol warmth and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Fruity, well balanced and very drinkable. Rather delicious stuff.
