22 oz. bottle from Mammoth Liquor. Lots of caramel in the aroma with some citrus hops, light mango, and faint pineapple. It pours slightly hazy amber with a small white head that leaves behind spotty lacing. The flavor starts with a light watery caramel fruitiness. Almost all the flavor comes in the finish with an increased caramel presence and a moderate dose of grapefruit hoppiness. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and light carbonation. Awesome IPA!

On tap at my local tavern. Into a 20oz. mug.

The beer arrives with a two finger head of pure white foam floating atop the beautiful orange, amber colored goodness that is Kern's Just Outstanding IPA. The nose is citrus and biscuity malt with a bit of pine. Taste is huge grapefruit, and tangerine backed by a light, sweet, malt backbone and some piney bitterness. The finish is lush and juicy with a wonderful bitter aftertaste. The beer is medium bodied with a level of carbonation which imparts a creamy texture and great quaffability. Overall this is the epitome of a perfectly balanced west coast IPA. Citrus, pine, light malt presence, great bitterness, what more could you ask for? Kern hits it out of the park with this one. Highly recommended!

I don't know how the bros say this is only an 83. This damn good, refreshing, highly drinkable. Just an outstanding WCIPA. Great hop notes, citrus, mango, peach, apricot, etc. Nice balanced backbone. Cristp and clean. Sticky and danky. I can't say another good things.
