Pours a hazy burnt orange with perhaps the tallest, soapiest head I have seen thus far.
Exceptionally effervescent, great lacing.

Very flowery aroma, quite juicy like a tropical fruit salad with the sweet malt resting beneath.
Mouthwatering nose draws you in to the first sip with anticipation.

Taste is very nicely balanced, with the hops center stage. Flavors of orange, tangerine, & grapefruit are prominent, with the slight caramel sweetness from the malt to round out the flavors quite well.

Mouthfeel is a solid medium, carbonation is brisk but not overdone, nice bitterness resting at the back of the palate, alcohol extremely well hidden. Dry and crisp finish make this very appealing for what I am seeking in an IPA.

Exceptional example of the style, Just Outstanding earns its moniker. Really sweet effort from Kern River, highly recommended for those that enjoy truly hop forward IPAs. The "Bros." trashed this one in their review, and should recant the undeserved low rating by sampling another bottle with an open mind.
