On-tap at Local Habit. This keg was brought back by the bartender after visiting Kern River a few weeks ago.
a- amber-gold ipa. good head, screams ipa.
s- inviting. olfactory not slammed by hops. reminds me of duet by alpine.
t- again, reminds me of duet. there are a couple of hops working together here, but it feels like they almost zero each other out. you get a bit of bite early, but by the end of the glass it had lost most of that zing. drink colder than warm.
m- fell a little flat on the tongue. a weightier ipa, with thick, slow flavors.
o- this is a beer in a minor key. not a bright, hoppy ipa, more of a cloudy, moody ipa. simcoe & amarillo, but just not as good as alpine's duet.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
