Another good one from Kern River. Bottled 2 weeks ago. Poured into a large flute.

Dark Amber/Copper color. Small head. Lots of lacing. Looks good.

Smell the hops right away. Pine being abundant.

Balanced taste. The hops give a little bite, much more than a typical red. Very nicely done.

Lightly carbonated, medium body.

Overall a red that I'd drink again. Nicely done Kern.

Large shared bottle of Kern Dirty hippie.

Aroma: does NOT smell like a dirty hippie but does have some resemblance to a bock bier.

Flavor: Very hoppy version of the style, with citrus and floral hops. The hops are at about APA level; mild bitterness.

Somewhat light body.

O: very good.

The beer pours a bright copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes fairly quick along with lacing that lasted well throughout. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt which was surprising for a red ale. Flavors of caramel, herbal hops, grapefruit, and bready malt. Medium bodied and well-carbonated. The finish was moderately bitter with a lingering resinous hops aftertaste. Overall, a pretty decent anniversary beer from Kern River, just not as good as the 5th anniversary beer.
