look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22oz Bomber perfectly poured into a tulip with slightly hazy gold color that produced nice head with the most perfect lacing of any of the beers I have had lately.

First sip is a dream and stands on citrus and pear notes which ballance very well with moderate maltyness and perfect carbonation. Smell is slightly piney and floral which seems to result in excess from the dry hopping process as stated on the bottle.

Very drinkable for myself but maybe a bit hoppy for the timid. This is the first time I have tried Kern River Brews but not the last. Highly recommend this CA IPA.
