look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Deep apricot colored pour with a creamy finger of khaki head, lacing on the spotty side.

Aroma is piney and malty in the same note,not much in the way of tropical fruit, touch of alcohol detectable.

Taste is an improvement over the aroma, the formidable malt bill is met by mass quantities of Simcoe hops that even things out and leave a pleasant bitterness on the back end. Flavors of dank pine with some mild orange rind mixing in as it warms up.

Mouthfeel is on the hearty side of medium, definitely a sipper, well carbonated.

Enjoying this bottle on the first day of Spring seems appropriate given the frigid temperatures. I've enjoyed all the Kern offerings so far,Winter Ale being on that list. These bottles are not easy to get a hold of, but if you get the chance to grab one you should do so. Thanks Paul!
