The Kernel India Pale Ale 5NZ


If The Kernel were a winery, they’d be a first growth. In a very competitive craft beer market, they are still making astonishingly good stand-out beers. This is another great example.

The Kernel India Pale Ale 5NZ
6.8% alcohol
Fresh but rounded and smooth with nice concentration and harmony. There’s nice hoppy, spicy, passionfruit and grapefruit character, sitting beautifully in the midst of a smooth but not intrusive malt base. The alcohol adds a bit of depth and smoothness, too. Such a lovely beer. 8.5/10
