Thanks to David Frank (wuntrikpony) for giving me the opportunity to experience KR Citra via trade!
Pour from bottle into chilled tulip glass. Appearance is beautiful deep and murky amber/orange. Thick & fluffy one-inch white head dissipated gradually, leaving abundant and uniform sticky lacing throughout. Lots of continuous minuscule bubbles for duration, all around a thin white collar. The nose is a citrusy mango pineapple, with a hint of pine and papaya/banana scent. On the palate, a subtle malt lends balance to bitey hops with a taste profile similar to the nose. Indeed, one of the more striking aspects of this brew is the utter balance of citrus hops and subtle malt, with the alcohol well hidden. Mouthfeel is better than average, with good but not overwhelming carbonation.
Overall, a very fine DIPA and one I hope to have the pleasure of trying again some day. Eager to visit Kern River and sample other offerings from what I understand is a fantastic venue. Thanks and cheers to David Frank for the experience!
