4.08/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, golden honey color. Gorgeous warm-looking color on this beer. About 1" of off-white head forms, that has good retention and limited lacing.

Smell: Caramel malt, lots of florals, citrus, grapefruit, and dankness. Nice, fresh hop scents in this. Nothing over the top, but still very good.

Taste: Good malt backbone. Hop character is very floral, along with some citrus, and general dankness. Maybe a bit of pine at the tail end.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied with very fine carbonation. As it warms it becomes more and more creamy on the palate. Good here. Overall, an excellent IPA. Again, nothing over the top, but very solid all around and something I'd love to have again.

4.29/5  rDev +1.2%
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.
