Big Beery Advent Calendar - Beer 5: Kernel IPA, 6-7% (SE London)

Each night at 8pm, we'll post a blog about the day's hand-picked beer in our Big Beery Advent Calendar - why we love the brewery, why we've chosen the beer, why we think you'll love it too. Feel free to comment below or have your say on Twitter.

The Kernel says: Not much. They prefer to let their beers do the talking...

We say: The Kernel releases a different batch of IPA every week, and we turn over their beers so quickly that we’ve used two different Kernel IPAs in our advent calendars. You might have the IPA hopped with Citra and Ella, full of grapefruit and tropical flavours, or the much vaunted new Aussie hop, Vic Secret, for a big passionfruit and pineapple hit. Either way, it’s going to be sublime because the Kernel simply don’t make anything less than exceptional beers.
