4.78/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Bright orange, very translucent, and lots of carbonation rushing up fromthe bottom. The head was only about a quarter of an inch but held pretty well and left very good lacing.

S: Bursts of citrus hit my nose. Lemon, Mango, apricot, peach, with a slight hint of pine and caramel as well. Just some great hop aromas

T: Good amount of grapefruit, mango, orange, peach. Very much like the smell, but a bit more pine that is a pleasant addition. As it warms the caramel comes out a little bit more and the hops fade, best enjoyed very cold

M: A bit light and slightly grainy with a mild hint of heat. Not terrible but not perfect

D: I could drink this one on a regular basis and think it stands up to some of the ebst IPAs out there

Note: I enjoyed this side by side with PtE and prefered this

Thanks Geoi!

Pours a hazy, orange with a killer, fluffy head.

Tons of citrus in the nose... grapefruit, pineapple, mango, pine.

Same in the taste... just delicious! Similar to Oracle, but not quite in the same league.

Good carbonation and medium-bodied. Drinkable as all get out. Kern River is 2-2 with me! This is a hoppy, juicy, leaves-you-wanting-more brew!

I realized that I had not yet reviewed this particular brew from Kern River. And I have been advocating this wondrous brew by giving it as an extra on my trades. I received a fresh keg of it and promptly put it in the kegerator. So this review is based on a super fresh keg pour and not the bottle, which surprisingly got way better than the bottle (something that is hard to do with such a great tasting beer).

A: darker orange, copper appearance with an offwhite head that held at 2 fingers for quite some time. Not your typical IPA hue, but then again, this is NOT your typical American IPA.

S: holy shit, at first pull of the tap handle my bar area filled with the delicious aroma of ripe apricot, sticky resinous hops, some floral aromas...and I thought popping the top off of the 22 oz bottles released some delightful aromas...a fresh keg produced 100% better results! Awesome

T: Again, I thought it was going to be hard to beat the taste out of a fresh bottle, but WOW, I mean just WOW, fresh from the keg is the only way to go on this beer. Just Outstanding really nails it. Slight alcohol warmth to it in the end.

M: Sticky oily mouthfeel, perfect for the hopheads. Not to overpowering, still well balanced. Medium carbonation and tons of body on this one.

D: I think I can easily drink 4-5 pints of this, however after a while the ABV kicks in and realize its time to go to sleep. I am so glad that I have a keg of this yummy elixir to enjoy and enjoy for weeks to come.

**Again, this review was from a keg and not the bottle, which I thought couldnt get any better.**

4.6/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Bengal tiger stripe orange with goldenrod highlights. The putty colored crown maxed out at three fingers and features an attractive clump of glassine bubbles on its upper surface. As it starts to fade, thick sheets of finely dotted lace grace the glass.

The aroma is the tropical fruity explosion that results when a talented brewer dry-hops an IPA with Simcoe and Amarillo. Almost no toasted or caramel malt pleases me to no end. If the malt-hop, sweet-bitter balance was nailed, this should be incredibly delicious beer.

The label does not lie. Just Outstanding IPA is everything that I love in beer of this style. And is an excellent example of why this is my favorite style to begin with. Predominantly pale malt that adds a touch of sugar cookie-like sweetness? Check. A massive amount of fresh hop flavor? Check. Two of my favorite hops? Check and check. Loads of bitterness that stops just short of tongue abuse? Check.

An ABV that provides power and flavor boldness, but doesn't add even a hint of hotness? Check. The fruitiness that these particular hops provide is nothing short of amazing: juicy pineapple, pink grapefruit, tangerine, ganja and plenty of pine. Okay, so those last two aren't fruits. This is gulpable beer that is meeting its fate in rapid fashion.

An incredibly messy glass earns a score bump where appearance is concerned. Actually, it was almost there already. The mouthfeel is rock-solid as well. It's medium for the style and has a crushed velvety smoothness that is pure pleasure for the mouth and tongue.

Who the bloody hell are these guys? Whoever they are, they deserve a standing ovation and thunderous applause. Kern River Just Outstanding IPA is exactly that. I haven't been this impressed in a long time.

Damn this is a good IPA. Had it at Hamilton's in San Diego as part of beer week...place was packed.

A - Fine hazy golden colour with just a hint of peach or amber.

S - Strong - even in a packed bar I knew this was gonna taste great. Lots of citrus and flower with a hint of grain coming thru.

T - Nice full bodied IPA with tons of hop character. More towards the bitter side of IPAs but its just what the doctor ordered.

M - Pretty good, nice and full with a good balance of carbonation and body.

D - High, I'd get this again for sure. Not sure how it'd be in a bottle but I bet its a dosey.

Had this on 10/30, thanks for this extra Shane! From notes.

Pours a burnt orange color with great head retention and lacing.

Aroma is vibrant with tropical fruits, pineapple. Pine trees. Taste follows this with a surprisingly low bitterness. Fruity and herbal hops over lightly toasted malts. Juicy. Great fruit flavors of mango, pineapple and grapefruit.

On its way to a sticky mouthfeel, appropriate carbonation. I think I took down a bomber of this in less than 15 minutes without even trying. What a great IPA! $4 for a bomber? The low bitterness and juicy hop profile make this one a winner for sure. Yes please!

GLASS: Mug
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 50 degrees
Thanks to Solomon420 for this one.

This pours a dark, golden, yellow with orange tinting. A tiny head of white foam rides the liquid, all the way down the glass. Lacing is full and quite sticky.

Big presence of citrus hops. Loads of grapefruit, both yellow and ruby-red. A good amount of orange and lemon rinds. A good level of pine oil. Nice level of floral hops, also. Definite hints of caramel and sweet malts are here, but they appear to be pretty deep.

The taste is way more balanced than I anticipated it to be. This is an equal playing field for both the hops and the malts. Mild levels of caramel and brown sugar sweetness mingle with the citrus and floral hop notes. The sweet and bitter don't cancel each other, so much as they compliment each other.
It lives up to its name.

This is medium-bodied with a light level of carbonation. No real presence of creaminess to speak of, but it's very smooth and tasty.

This is a damn fine IPA, as long as you aren't looking for a palate shredder. Great balance, taste and enjoyability.
Recommended.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass from 22 ounce bottle.

An amber-yellow hue enters my glass, low foam build and the lower carbonation is immediately apparant. Head looks nice with tight bubbles, but would have liked to see a bit more. Smells floral, citrus, pineapple, smokey - I must start taking beers out of the fridge earlier to get more aromas. Classic Simcoe/Amarillo mix.

Taste is smooth, very well balance between malt & hops. Mouthfeel is great, just where it should be. 6.8% alcohol is very well packaged with this brew. Just to nitpick, I would like the bitter level a hair less, but that is my personal opinion.

All in all, an excellent beer and comes highly recommended. In addition, a great buy at $3.99 - I would also pick this up at $4.99.

huge scents, mainly pineapple, floral, and sweet citrus. amazing.

very floral up front, lots of sweet citrus through out and some pineapple. a slight pine bitterness creeps in and out. light malts. a lot going on here but not overpowering. very flavorful.

body looked thin but is not. nice light carbonation and decent body.

I could and would drink this all night and all day.

Thanks again to Jay for providing the generous sample today. Review is from notes. Bottle says dry hopped with Amarillo and Simcoe, just like the Alpine Duet we just had.

Poured into a mini-nonic glass, this IPA was orange with a fine haze of unfiltered micro-sediment. Good retention with a little bit of spotty lacing. A thin skim remained across the surface of the beer. The nose was spicy and dry, showing off caramel malt, spicy resiny hop character, with an indistinct fruity citrus flavor. Heavy on the spicy hops with a good dose of leafy, herbal character. Light bodied and easy going, the bitterness is not overbearing mabe a 5-6/10 scale. Very enjoyable, i'd try this again.

22oz bottle fresh from the left coast.

Pours hazy dark copper with a half inch head of white. A partial skimcoat on the surface throughout the glass as well as smeary lacing.

Aromatics lead off with a blast of tropical fruit, spruce dew, and ripe malt. Peaches, tangerines, melons, and grapefruit. Floral and enticing.

Medium bodied with a crisp, slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Lush, ripe fruit leads off the palate. Grapefruit zest, orange pulp, soft peaches, and mango. Resinous pine notes step forward as well as a firm, sustaining bitterness.

Finishes with lingering fruit, bitterness, and a shade of biscuity malt.

Another great west coast IPA. Highly hopped with a smooth bitterness. Yum.

22oz bomber poured into a tulip.

Pours a deep, clear amber with a big creamy off-white that shows excellent retention and leaves good lacing as well.

The aroma is excellent with lots of pithy grapefruit, oranges and pineapple with some resinous floral hops as well. Doughy bread whiffs as well. Big and juicy aroma overall.

The taste follows the aroma closely with lots of citrus hops up front. There does seem to be a more prevalent floral hop presence, especially in the finish with a sticky resinous pine flavor.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation but much, much smoother than I was expecting. The hops are definitely there is not nearly the bitterness I was expecting.

This is my first beer from Kern river and it's quite an introduction. This is an outstanding IPA, extremely drinkable with a massive but not scathingly bitter hop presence. Highly impressed.

Bronze orange in color, with a slight chill haze.
thick 3 fingers of near white head, with slight tint of cream
aroma of cornbread, orange taffy, bright piney notes. As it opens up, I get some nice tropical fruit whiffs with a side of honeydew. Nice pop of pine up front. Pretzel bready with crisp pine bitterness. Bitter in the back more than anywhere else. Tart grapefruit, somewhat thin in the body, but OK for a beer with complex hop flavor as with this one.

Wonderful webbed lacing, moon crater froth.

Just outstanding- perfect name. Very smooth, easy, packed with flavor.

From a 22-oz bomber purchased at Red Carpet Wine in Glendale, Calif.

Pours a rich amber with really impressive lacing and a very moderate head. Nice beer to see slowly drain from the cup.

Nose is pretty much standard-issue California IPA -- grapefruit, pine, spice. Well done.

Taste is similar to the smell, with a very nice body for 6.8% a.b.v. I also enjoyed the moderate carbonation.

Very drinkable at 6.8% combined with the relatively easy body. Nice to see another solid IPA.

Picked up a couple of bombers from Hi-Times today. So glad to finally get a full one to myself!

A: Just Outstanding pours a hazy amber color with a nice white foam.

S: Amazing hop aroma on this beer. Tons of grapefruit along with a nice pine scent. Not too much malt, just the way a west coast IPA should be.

T: A lot more resinous and piney than the aroma lets on. Still a great grapefruit flavor that is slightly present in the beginning and then lingers on the finish. Again, not much malt on the tongue.

M: Very light and easy drinking. A moderate to high level of carbonation (for an IPA, anyway).

D: Just Outstanding is quite an appropriate name for this beer. The aromas and flavors are just what you expect from a west coast IPA and it's such an easy drinking beer. I wish this was more readily available to me.

Dark gold with about one and a half fingers of creamy cream colored head. A few bubbles surfacing. Good lacing. Fragrant upon the pour, this has plenty of elaborate hoppiness to share. Pineapple, pine, lightly tropical and slightly flowery or earthy, great combo from the simcoe and amarillo dry hopping.

Taste is dominant with the hops, pine, a bit of grapefruit, light malt sweetness perfectly compliments the bitter hoppy bite that comes through. Hop forward, delicious, but also with some malt balance that still keeps the hops up front. All around one great IPA. Medium body, smooth and creamy, but not over the top on carbonation, great balance. This is the kind of IPA I would want to drink every day, just wish it had more availability.

Just oustanding... you knew I was going to say that.

Poured from a bomber into a standard pint glass. This brew shows a clear and deep golden color with an inch of soapy white foam. Decent retention and lacing follow, holding a surface cap through the pint.

Nose is robust and floral. Rather enticing but short and thus a bit reaching. You gotta reach for it but it's good though brief when you get there. Becomes more piney as the head settles.

Taste is not so outstanding. Bit watery and with a thin hop bite though it does garner up a bit of steam as you adjust. Simple citric malts on the finish. Nice feel and drink with a well balanced bitterness on the finish.

An extra from the very generous Solomon420. Thank you, Damian! The last 20 beers I've consumed have been German in origin, and I'm looking forward to an IPA! Plus, I haven't had anything from these guys.

A: Surprisingly dark for an IPA, this is a rather deep amber with a finger-thick off-white head. Retention is pretty good, and there's some lace as the head slowly recedes to a clumpy disk

S: Makes me think of a East/West Coast hybrid. Bright citrus hops with tangerine, plenty of tropical fruit with some mango and papaya, but there's also a pretty solid malt presence in this (if the color didn't give it away). Caramel sweetness that when combined with the citrus character is like candied oranges. Solid

T: Opens up mildly bitter with a mainly citrus character (orange skins) with some pine bitterness. Plenty of hop flavor, with orange, tangerines and some pine. The tropical fruit character i initially picked up on the nose is not really noticeable on the palate. A definite malt presence is noted, with a simple caramel character. The finish is mildly sweet, with mild hop bitterness

M: Medium-light in body, this beer is a touch disappointing on the palate. It feels a little watery, and the finish could use more bitterness.

D: The low alcohol and low bitterness makes this very easy to drink, and I can actually feel my palate after drinking this! I quite enjoyed it, and would not hesitate to try this again.

Thanks to Solomon420 for a very generous trade!

Pours a glowing amber with two fingers of head that leave some good lacing on the way down.

Smell is an extremely juicy blend of citrus and floral notes. This one is pretty damn potent and inviting. I even ended up with foam up my nose because I kept wanting to get closer and closer.

The taste doesn't quite have that same effect. I like the hop profile but it isn't quite defined enough, nor is it balanced with the malts. I'm getting more of a bitter-hop-mixed-with-water type taste. Still, its not bad and there aren't any unpleasant flavors present.

Mouthfeel is medium but a tad too thin for the style. Although this goes down quite smooth, drinkability is lacking due to the the less than glowing flavor profile. Not a bad brew by any means, but a lot of IPA's are starting to blend together for me and it takes something special to stand out from the pack.

I bought a bomber of this from Olive Tree Market in Ocean Beach.

It pours a clear copper with a creamy off-white head that leaves spidery lacing.

The aroma is floral with a piney undertone and a trace of sweet caramel-y malt.

At first, floral, piney hops hit the tongue, supported by a smooth, sweet malt. Then grapefruit appears with a lingering hop bitterness, followed by an aftertaste of floral tea. 6.8% alcohol with not a trace in the taste.

The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. It coats your throat with a time-release mixture of hop juice and sweet malt. It's thicker than an IPA, but not as heavy as a double IPA.

Overall, the beer is just outstanding :-P Due to the stickiness, a bomber of this was the perfect amount. One a day keeps the doctor away.

Consumed on 9/12/2009 and poured into a snifter. The beer appears a medium orange with a creamy one finger white head. Good retention and some lacing.

The nose is primarily grapefruit, with lesser notes of pine. It's slightly floral and slightly sweet. The malt is subtle and crackery.

The taste is of slightly bitter grapefruit and a little pine. The beer has a low medium level of bitterness that seems to increase in the dry finish. The malt is crackery and not too noticeable and doesn't provide any sweetness. The beer is light medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a very dry and sticky mouthfeel.

This is an enjoyable and easy drinking IPA. Good stuff, and at $3.99 a bottle it's a steal.

Picked up a growler at Kern River Brewing on the way to a camping trip up River, sure glad i did!

Pours a orange golden amber, with a decent head.
Wow what a nose! This is one of the best aroma's I've had in awhile [must not have had a green flash in awhile?]
pine grapefruit.

Great taste Hoppy but a malt backbone, pretty well balanced
Wish this was closer to home!

The Growler was perfect and the carbonation was good
the staff was very nice, and this place didn't pitch a fit with ordering an IPA for a growler like *some* places....
Will be going back some day

What's so outstanding about this IPA? Time to find out. On to the beer:

Amber copper color, some small carbonation bubbles racing through the body, and a thick, creamy, sticky head sit on top of it all. The aroma is beautiful, a tribute to the hop. Juicy tropical hops, oily hops, and a crackery dry malt are a tease to the nostrils.

Smooth, soft, and slippery in the mouth. I don't get the crackery malt in the taste as I do in the nostrils....still, this IPA is balanced well. Certainly, the oily hops dominate. Faint tropical fruits, touch of tangerine, faint resin. Nothing bitter about this. Very easy going down the hatch.

This beer had generated some talking, so I was interesting with experimenting with this beer. I have to say that's it's quite good and worth looking for.

I poured this one from a 22oz brown bomber bottle into a shaker pint glass.

A= At fridge temp, this ale poured a deep hazy orange color with a ½" white head. The head dropped to a skim fairly quickly but left some nice sticky web lace down my glass.

S= Smelled of sweet malt and juicy/fresh citrus and pine hops. Some deeper, danker bitter hop smell in there too. Very fresh and very nice.

T= The sweet malt base came through first, showing a bit of biscuit and caramel edge to it. The hop flavor was all citrus and pine, with maybe a touch of tropical fruitiness. Hop bitterness was up there but not so high as to overpower the other flavors. Finished dry and full of lingering hop resins.

MF= Medium bodied with a big but not overdone carbonation feel. Very much a palate cleansing beer.

D= This was my first beer from Kern River Brewing (received in a trade) and I was well pleased. Tasty and easy to drink for sure. I could easily session a few of these!
