COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“The Name Says it All” Just Outstanding has an orange amber body that combines a zesty and bitter characteristic, a generous malty taste and an exquisite floral aroma – Oh yeah, this beer is really hoppy too! This sturdy ale has 7.5% alcohol and twice the malt and hops of a Pale Ale. If you like a strong IPA, you’ll find this beer

Clear amber orange in color with a cream colored head and thick lacing. Smell is more yeast and dough than hops at first and then as it warms the hops appear just slightly in the nose. Flavor is sweet and slightly bitter. The sweetness in the flavor is followed by a nice little hoppy bite. Carbonation isn’t perfect - a little slow moving and is a bit off. Overall, drinkable and enjoyable, but not one of my top 10 IPAs.

Aroma – Nice hoppy aroma with a good malt background.
Appearance – Amber in color, clear with a nice head.
Flavor – Very hoppy this beer was awesome to drink, The IPA flavor was huge and decent this can compete with the Pac NW for IPA’s. Great malt and hops flavor.
Palate – Great Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – A very good IPA had the flavors and the texture. Loved the hops and flavors I got from this beer. Not too overpowering to kill your taste buds.

kramer (5103) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2008
22 oz bottle, via Odeed. Pours a clear copper under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy thin film. Lots of heavy lacing. A nice bright floral and citrusy hop nose, very fresh smelling, with just a minimal malt presence. Very bitter aggressive hops up front dominate the flavor, some toasted crystal malt mid-swallow, finishing out with lingering bitter citrus rinds. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation, a little resiny hop stickiness lingering. Overall, a pretty decent IPA, very aggressively bitter, it certainly doesn’t pander to the masses.

Hazy light amber body with a small white head. The nose is grapefruit, tangerine, cat, orange and green apple. The flavor is fairly dry with green apple, tangerine and cotton candy. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation.

Bottle: 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.

22 oz. bottle via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is herbal hops and bready malt. Flavor is pine, fruity esters, and light toasted malt. Medium body. No lingering aftertaste. A good beer. Thanks Richard.

Pretty one dimensional in the aroma with a decently frothy head. Pine is the highlight here with a bit of catiness thrown in for good measure. Not a fan of this flavour combo. However, there is a nice mouthfeel and body to be found. A bit of toasted caramel in here, but not enough malt backbone to hold up to the bitterness of the hops on the finish.

Thanks to Kan for the bomber! Poured slightly hazy medium orange with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up strained caramel supporting citrus (orange and grapefruit), pine, and grassy hoppage.. on the succulent side with a bit of bite to it. The flavor had caramel and sweeter, juicy citrus fruits (primarily grapefruit) supporting more citrus and some pine bitterness.. resiny citrus bitterness and some alcohol warmth on the finish.. rather well-balanced. Full on the palate with ideal higher carbonation.. tangy, resiny finish was refreshing. Very good stuff!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2009 From IrishBoy via trade. Thank you Richard! The pour was a turbid brown with lighter gold and orange highlights sitting just beneath a two-finger tall off-white head. Good, sticky, web-like lacing. The aroma was of a fairly standard California IPA, sugary malts that are quickly trampled by citrus and pine hops. Manages to find a bit of balance. The flavor is a bit more out of whack, with the citrusy hops dominating a front end of light caramel and a finish of floral and pine. The mouthfeel was above average. I think I’m developing a soft spot for these California IPA’s.

December NorCal tasting - Kern River Brewing? Never heard of ’em. It’s a decent beer though. An aroma of citrus and pine but there’s a little more than that. I also got a good dose of passion fruit and other tropical fruits. Appearance was a typical solid hazy amber color. Mouthfeel was on the mineral water side, a bit like drinking Alka Seltzer. The flavor was like chewing on hop pellets soaked in Kern’s passion fruit nectar. Not bad though.
