Kern River strikes again! If you were a fan of the collab with Knee Deep (Deep Rivers), this is right there. Outstanding fruity and juicy aromas and flavors, easy to drink, clean and delicious. Cheers!

Copper and yellow color, full inch of head. Aroma was primarily citrus (citra) in its hoppiness. Plenty fruity.

Taste was soft, bitterness low, hop flavors high. Dank factor up. Really similar to their more well known citra dipa, but probably equally as good. A changeup, maybe this one had Nelson/Mosaic, something that got a little funkier than just the citra hop.
