Congratulations to me. I have found the best beer I've ever tasted, thanks to my generous friend and his mother in law. Kern River Brewing Citra Double IPA nails it on nearly every aspect, but what else should I expect from the Kern River? YourNextPint has blogged about a couple other of their brews, and they never seem to disappoint (Just Outstanding IPA or Pumpkin Ale).
- unique fruity smell that comes organically from the dry hopped process, tastes like it smells and drinks effortlessly despite its double IPA bitterness (Kern River Brewing Co. in Kernville, CA) ABV 8%
I happend to be a lucky recipient of a bottle from a dear YNP friend who generoulsy shared his stash after waiting in line at the brewery itself, located in the middle of nowhere. If it wasn't for his mother in law, who was asked only to come to double up on the "1 case per person" policy, I wouldn't be sharing this with you today.
To my suprrise, Citra as a DIPA drinks very easily despite its heavy hop brewing process and blend of malt. If you can get your hands on one, it'll be an experience to forever remember.
