Thanks to grze for sending me this bottle... as an extra believe it or not...

A- hazy peach orange color with an "outstanding" 2-3/4in antique white rocky, pillowy head... stuck around a damn good amount... left a superb amount of soapy lacing..

S- Candied oranges, pineapple and grapefruit... so sweet smelling at first... followed by a good hop punch ending in a grassy alcohol smell with the hopps lingering...

T- followed the nose in order as well... great lingering bitterness that wasn't overpowering. Its a good balance and is not one sided.. you get a good sweet citrus hot at first then the hoppiness comes thru and makes you know your drinking an ipa.

M- Creamy medium bodied with a juicy finish

O- Had high hopes for this one and it did not let down.... I had a lot of great, high rated ipa's this year and this one is definitely up there.. would have a hard time chosing others if this was around. Definitely Recommend and thanks again grze

Served from a growler from my trip to Kern.

A: Tall, frothy white head that settles to half a finger and leaves wonderful creamy lacing. Orange and nicely carbonated. When I think IPA, this is the image I have in mind. Can't fault it.

S: Juicy citrus goodness. Orange and mango up front. Pine needles, lovely backbone.

T: Starts with that sweet tropical & citrusy fruitiness. Middle of the tongue is melding of mostly sweet with a tad bitter hop end. Bready, biscuity malt backs up with not too much lingering bitterness. This is great stuff.

M: One thing I noticed with KRBC (especially with Class V Stout) is their creamy mouthfeel. This one starts very creamy with just enough carbonation on the back end to dry it up. Could be because it's from the tap, it's great though.

O: This was my favorite of the four year-round brews I sampled at Kern. Decided to grab a growler of this and have been waiting for a day to enjoy it. Today's the day. Pick it up if you can, it's hard to find but great, just like all KRBC brews.

Just Outstanding, what an appropriate name. Two weeks old acquire in a trade.

Excellent Amber color. nice size head, good lacing.

Very hoppy smell, nice.

Taste is very good. Simco hops over all else. Slight make sweetness. Very well done.

Great ipa.

Pours into an imperial nonic a deep orange tinged brass color with a large blooming slight off white head atop that leaves multiple broken rings of lace as it settles ever so slowly.Aromas of grapefruit rind and herbal hops over top of biscuit malts.Pretty outstanding flavors with sharp grapefruit and resin-like hops winning out over sweetish caramel/biscuit dough maltiness.A big hopped up left coast ipa,as good as I thought it would be.
