22 ounce bomber poured into a tulip glass

A: Pours pale orange, it's very hazy, white bright head, lots of lacing,good amount of carbonation, head did not last, soapy film left.

A: Tropical fruit notes, guava, mango, pineapple, tangerine, not getting any malts, all hop notes, smells really good.

T: Like the nose, guava, mango, touch of grapefruit peel on the finish, finishes dry, very good.

M: A little light for a IIPA, could use some more carbonation, dry finish.

O: This is very good, must try if you like IIPAs, tropical notes, dry finish, should have a bigger mouthfeel, but nothing to be disappointed about.

22 oz bottle poured into Belgian ale glass. No date on bottle. Shipped across the country in summer so...yeah...

L: Nice amber gold, somewhat hazy. 2F head, with poor retention, a little bit of a ring, spotty lacing.

S: So I think lack of care and some age have dulled this a bit, but I still get some dank pineyness and citrus in scent, but a lot of malt as well.

T: Faded grapefruit and orange, sweet light malts more assertive than you would want because of hop fade, but not too bad, dank pineyness faint but present on finish, which is pretty long and sticky.

F: Light to medium body, light carbonation, construction probably was better when fresh, as well as balance.

O: Some may say unfair, but I think care of beer from producer to retailer to consumer does matter and is part of the process and I drank this within a week of receipt, during which I took good care of it. It's not bad, but the highlights the hops brought out (I think) are gone now, so rating is part what it is now and part what they hint it was.

On tap at O'Brien's during SD Beer Week, poured into a pint.

A: Light-orange to yellow in color, creamy. Sudsy pour with lacing all over.

S: Citrusy nose, with tangerine and pine right at the front. Lemongrass, cracker in the middle, smells lively. Booze is completely masked.

T: Flavors follow, citrus pith and grassy, astringent hops at the tip of the palate. Honey sweetness follows, and the booze comes through here. Finished long, sweet, with sticky residuals between sips.

M: Feels light on the palate, but sticks between sips.

Tasty, but not as dialed-in as some of Kern's amazing brews. A little too big for its britches.
