Hands down, the best red IPAD I have ever had. Really dank flavor. I wish all dirty hippies smelled like this tasted.

Large shared bottle of Kern Dirty hippie.

Aroma: does NOT smell like a dirty hippie but does have some resemblance to a bock bier.

Flavor: Very hoppy version of the style, with citrus and floral hops. The hops are at about APA level; mild bitterness.

Somewhat light body.

O: very good.
