malushky (125) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with lasting white head, lacing present. Hoppy aroma of citrus, mostly grapefruit. Taste is delicate, citrusy, hoppy, tangerines, with bitter finish. Delicate body, very refreshing and easy to drink. Would be great for a hot summer day. Very decent beer.

aleigator (912) - GERMANY - JAN 1, 2017
Pours a cloudy orange color with a bigger, froth, white head. Smells of floral, crisp citrus with a natural sweetness to it, reminding also of juicy oranges. Offers a nice juicy note, once the beer warms up, which allows a mellow toffee sweetness to cut through. Has a perfectly smooth, yet lively mouthfeel, complimenting to the crispness of the lemon, while its body provides a nice depth and remains easily drinkable. Tastes of pleasantly soft and well nuanced citrus, balanced by grass and white bread dough. Begins dry, while slowly evolving a lemonade sweetness, in which the malts provide a subtle toffee flavor. Finishes fairly soft, aqueous, but in perfect balance. The plan of releasing yet another citra ipa goes, in this, beyond the idea of providing a basic portfolio of a brewery specializing in hoppy beers. The citrus is showcased in an intriguing way, callaborating with the subtle used malts, developing a very convincing balance.

TheJvd (1262) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
33 cL Bottle at home. Pours almost clear yellow with a medium white head. Typical citra aroma with yellow fruits and citrus goodness, hops, bit of grass. Taste is pretty crisp with yellow fruits, citrus, grass, tropical fruits and an over medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo. Been a while since Ive had a Kernel pale ale, but they still know how to make a crisp and tasty one.

anstei (1716) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle from Beersnmore. Pours hazy yellow with a fine foam. The aroma lets the Citra shine in all its glory, but quite naturally theres not much more. Very distinct and pure though. Body is light to medium with a soft bitterness and a smooth carbonation. Lightly sweet, yet altogether mostly dry. Citra does not let go and pushes the citric notes even down the palate. Still quenchable, and not a hint of letting go of the body. Nice.

Tasty. Straight and very well balanced. Lots of tropical fruits, with lovely mango notes sticking out. Smooth, sweet malt body. Great, quaffable Pale Ale.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Draught at WFPD 2016. Lots of citrus notes with grapefruit leading the way. Crisp, moderately bitter, balanced and as drinkable as can be.

VsXsV (4088) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2016
Draught. Hazy light orange liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, mango, lime peel and grain. Taste is very light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of grain, citrus and mango. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice, but not my favorite kernel beer ever. May be a bit old.
