I have to say that this name fits.When you name your beer Just outstanding you better bring your A game and Kern River did.Nice golden color and that nice smell6.,8 for an IPA is a little under what i am used to but the flavor more than makes up for it.Give it a try.You will love it.Kern River Rocks.

Good clean taste on this one.. So good that I had drank 3 in a afternoon..6.8 so I consider that as a "lighter" ipa but a damn good one though.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Enjoyed this for IPA Day (8/7/2014). I've had this many many times due to its easy accessibility.

Appearance: pours a lucious golden orange with a two finger+ off white head. Sticky lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Aroma: big citrus, tropical fruit and grapefruit notes. This is the very definition of juicy.

Taste/mouthfeel: it says it on the bottle. Just Outstanding! The front has those big juicy tropical notes. The middle has a touch of pine, but a touch only. The finish showcases the wonderful balanced maltiness with a bit of a citrusy sweetness. Nice full mouthfeel.

Overall: This is my go to IPA and is KRBC's flagship for good reason. Nothing but outstanding things to say.
