Imbibed at Gourmet Haus for Kern Rover tap takeover, 2/11/13.

Pours a very pale yellow, clear, with thick two finger head. Looks delicious in the nonic it was served in. The head dissipated relatively quickly and lacing suffers as a result. Tr aroma is nothing but hops: grapefruit, lemon, and pine in a Pliny type way with more pine. I get a cracker aroma from the glass with a good swirl. Where the aroma is light the taste plays as shade. Flavor reflects the aroma but it turns very bitter. It's not harsh, but overpowering and it lingers. Lets you know what kind of beer you're drinking. Don't really get much malt from this showcase of hops. Finish is slightly dry while feel is light. Just Outstanding is aptly named. I'd pick one up if I ever see it, but its no Pliny clone an stands on its own.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22oz Bomber perfectly poured into a tulip with slightly hazy gold color that produced nice head with the most perfect lacing of any of the beers I have had lately.

First sip is a dream and stands on citrus and pear notes which ballance very well with moderate maltyness and perfect carbonation. Smell is slightly piney and floral which seems to result in excess from the dry hopping process as stated on the bottle.

Very drinkable for myself but maybe a bit hoppy for the timid. This is the first time I have tried Kern River Brews but not the last. Highly recommend this CA IPA.
