I have to say that this name fits.When you name your beer Just outstanding you better bring your A game and Kern River did.Nice golden color and that nice smell6.,8 for an IPA is a little under what i am used to but the flavor more than makes up for it.Give it a try.You will love it.Kern River Rocks.

Good clean taste on this one.. So good that I had drank 3 in a afternoon..6.8 so I consider that as a "lighter" ipa but a damn good one though.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Enjoyed this for IPA Day (8/7/2014). I've had this many many times due to its easy accessibility.

Appearance: pours a lucious golden orange with a two finger+ off white head. Sticky lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Aroma: big citrus, tropical fruit and grapefruit notes. This is the very definition of juicy.

Taste/mouthfeel: it says it on the bottle. Just Outstanding! The front has those big juicy tropical notes. The middle has a touch of pine, but a touch only. The finish showcases the wonderful balanced maltiness with a bit of a citrusy sweetness. Nice full mouthfeel.

Overall: This is my go to IPA and is KRBC's flagship for good reason. Nothing but outstanding things to say.

They should change the name of this one to "Just Another IPA"

No visible dating on the bottle - pours a nice copperish color with little head and leaves very little lacing - Sweet sticky caramel is the predominant smell - Taste is just that... Caramel with some earthy pine and floral notes - smooth drinking with a slightly sticky aftertaste - not bad, not great, not likely to buy it again, but not going to turn it down if handed one either...

not seeing any bottled on info on this one. bomber bottle.

A: slightly hazy brew. orange ish in color. bright white head is pretty frothy. good lacing, good retention. definitely pretty hazy though.

S: really bright, citrus focused aromatics. however, there is a slight oxidized aroma in there as well. minor cara malt smell too.

D: drinks super light. citrus, mild pine flavor. a decent amount of maltiness as well. especially coming up about halfway and into the finish. that and plenty of bitterness. good stuff.

M: moderate body with a moderate carb. pretty average.

D: good stuff. not blowing my socks off but certainly a well done, very drinkable IPA. im not sure if this wasn't super fresh, but I would love to try some at the source. getting past the oxidation, this is good.

Bottle: Poured a nice golden color ale with a nice foamy head with excellent retention and some super great lacing. Aroma of fresh pineapple and citrus is very pleasant with nice flora undertones. Taste is also dominated by huge floral aroma of fresh grapefruit with some nice citrus notes with a lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average for style with great carbonation. World-class IPA which is approaching Alpine level but not quite there yet.
