The Kernel Brewery Amarillo IPA (7.5%)

Several people have told me I need to try the beer made by this brewery based just south of the Thames in the heart of London.

It took me a little while to track some down but I'm very glad I did.

Kernel's Amarillo IPA is a breathtakingly good ale.
My little 330 ml bottle gave me whisky laced sticky toffee pudding, crunchy black pepper and a knife sharp citrus tang followed by hops that punch you hard in the face and leave an amazing and long lingering finish on your palate.

No wonder people are talking about this brewery.

  1. A brilliant beer and a dream come true for an Amarillo hop junky like me!
    I'm sure you'll get around to it but be sure to try these:
    The Kernel Imperial Brown Stout London 1856
    The Kernel Export Stout London 1890
    The Kernel Imperial Märzen
    The Kernel Suke Quto Coffee India Pale Ale
    What am I talking about....try them all!! :)

  2. I was there on Saturday as you know, not sure if you read my blog post yet but had a cracking time:

    They had the Imperial Brown Stout on draft, one of my all time favourites so I was over the moon to drink it fresh a the brewery.

    Not tried the Amarillo yet but think I do have one somewhere, if not I'll get one..soon

    All great beers

  3. Hullo.
    I have a bottle of their Stout and one of there Centennial IPA's for this weekend - at 10% each, that should make my eyes cross :)

  4. Wonderful post and I can't wait to "travel" with you some more. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Amarillo roofing.
