Just like the label says. I get a little toasted sesame flavor which I love behind the piney and citrus notes. Solid, well rounded IPA. Love me some Kern! Cheers!

22oz bottle poured into a tulip

Tropical and citrus hop aromas with an emphasis on orange and grapefruit. Taste follows the aroma with a blast of juicy citrus hops and notes of mango and papaya. Underlying faint toasted malt, more juicy hops on the finish. A classic west coast IPA that is super drinkable

Great creme color with a 2 finger head and tremendous aroma of pineapple and other tropical fruits, but not overwhelming. Taste is citrusy with a brilliant hoppy bitter taste. Perfectly balanced, this is one I always look for.

Beautiful orange color with a bout a finger and a half of fizzy head and tremendous lacing. Aromas of gala apples, pineapple and stonefruits. Taste is very citrusy, with grapefruit, pineapple and an amazing hop bitterness. Malt and Hop balance well in this one. Great Beer !!!!
