Quite simply the most enjoyable beer I have had in a LONG time!! Last week a friend of mine and I had this after a few others and thought "wow this is incredilbe!" so I bought 2 more bombers and now I open one alone. The aroma is only outdone by its crazy dark orang cloudiness. Taste is PERFECT for my tongue, huge bitter citrus twang with a creamy malt balanced finish. I can’t recall when I loved a beer this much since Pliny T Younger a few years back.

toxichop (340) - South Gate, California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Wow aroma was huge on this one, very tropical, tons of hops, lots of mango, citrus, lime and pineapple. Appearance was orange very hazy with nice white head. Taste was like the aroma with mango and lime dominating but caramel malt was able to get through as well a little to much malt actually which kept me from giving it a perfect score. Mouthfeel was medium bodied finishes sticky with low bitterness. Overall this is one hell of a dipa one of the most fruity/tropical ipas I have ever had and its super delicious. I believe this was bottled on the 21st of Feb. so this was already two weeks old and I was skeptical as I am paranoid with ipas but I super glad I did the hunt and finally got it. This sure lives up to the hype.

Appearance is straw gold with almost no head on pour at brewery. Aroma is HUGE hops, citrus, grapefruits, grass, bit of weed. Taste is sweet hops with a nice smooth bitterness and a nice malty sweet backbone. Palate is thin and dry making this really refreshing. Overall another great DIPA from Kern River.

IrishBoy (3825) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bomber bottled on May 12th from Country Club Liquors. Nose is tons of ivy and piney hops that waft out on you as you open the bottle mixed with a very light malty sweet aroma. Hazy copper orange with a medium beige head. Flavor is moderate bitterness with hints of pine and a lightly sweet backbone. Finishes lightly bitter. I agrre with my son in law who calls it Double "Just Outstanding".

Nice gold pour, white head. Juicy hops, tropical fruit, grassy notes, resin in the nose. Flavor is so vibrant and fresh with fruity hops, citrus, resin, grassy, floral...just a beauty.

From notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip. Kern 5th Anniversary pours a dark faded golden yellow color with a long-standing white head. The aroma is quite floral with a strong lilac or lily presence. A grapefruit, lemon, and apricot hop aroma adds a strong citrusy hop aroma to a biscuity malt base. Each sip starts out with a biscuit and honey sweetness that is light and somewhat dry. As the flavor progresses, a juicy grapefruit flavor comes in with a hoppy vengenace. Apricot and some lemon zest provide some further depth to the strong hoppiness. Bubbly carbonation also has a creamy quality to it, giving off the perception that this is a light, easy drinking beer. The 8% ABV is deceptive for sure. Overall this is an extremely enjoyable beer out of Kern River.
