Kentucky

4.06/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear deep copper with a frothy one inch cream head that lingers, eventually dissipating and leaving spotty lacing.

Resin, bready malt, toast, and dank hop notes form the initial aroma. Grapefruit, lemon, spruce, and fresh cut grass add complexity.

Flavor follows suit, with a caramel malt backbone, slightly sweet, pervading throughout. Grapefruit and tangerine begin the hop profile, fading mid palate to notes of resin, which carry into the fairly bitter finish. Grassy qualities emerge as it warms, along with pineapple in the aftertaste.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.

Good malt backbone to carry the hops, which are fairly flavorful and not overly bitter. Citrus and resin are both well represented.

3.36/5  rDev -19%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Nice appearance and mouthfeel, but the taste left me unimpressed.
If you're a hop-head, you'll like this one. If you like balance or complexity, not so much. (I like balance, so while I can appreciate the resinous, tangy hops, it was too one-dementional for my palate.)
