3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22oz bomber. Pours a dark amber with a healthy white head. Smells of caramel malts and very slight citrus. Taste outshines the smell by far. Grapefruit upfront and slight malty backbone. Nice clean finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via trade. Pours a light reddish color with a slightly cloudy appearance. Medium white head that laces well. Nose is tropical and citrus with a slight pine character. Taste is initially sweet then fades to bitter with a moderate hop character. Just kinda run of the mill fruity with some tropical and citrus notes. OK, and probably was outstanding by IPA terms a few years ago, but right now, the hops seem a bit light and bland.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got this as a throw in from a trade! Like the description says, this was "Just Outstanding". Pours orange and a bit hazy with a medium head and some sticky lacing. Smell is citrus, strong grapefruit, orange. Taste was more up front grapefruit and orange with a small amount of sweetness with a heavy bitter kicking in. Medium body and well carbed. Very happy that I got to try my first Kern offering.

Yay, 50th IPA reviewed
A- Pours a beautiful sunset orange color with an absolutely massive, off white head that leaves tons of lacing on the way down.
S- Lots of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, slight breadiness
T- Grapefruit and orange/tangerine on the front end that lead to an absolutely tongue destroying bitterness that lingers.
M- Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
D- This is a treat for a hop lover. I really enjoyed it.

Solid malt backbone with a little sweetness to balance the bright, juicy hop flavor. Really nice balance of bittering/ late addition hop flavor.
