look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Enjoyed on-tap @ Country Boy Brewing in Lexington, KY for $4. Tapped from a Creative Wooden Carved Tap Handle (they all are like this here) into a 16oz Pint Glass.

Aroma- Big huge complexed hop aroma! Tons of resin and citrus fruits all mixed together. Strong with a hint of the ABV.

Appearance- Received with a 1.5 finger of creamy head that has great retention. Has a dark copper body with a semi-hazy background. Leaves good lacing behind.

Flavor- Huge hop flavor with sweetness to back it up. Complexed once again with and bitterness level was out of this world high.

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Chewy, but then finished a bit dull. Not much hop lingered afterwards.

Overall Impression- Another great IPA from a local brewery! I wish these IPA's could have different characters every time but a good IPA is a good IPA. Won't be picky here!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Serving- On Tap at their Brewery/TapRoom

Appearance- Enjoyed this outside so it had more ambient light than I normally get to see with my brews. That being said, it appeared golden. That was about it. Not dark by any stretch but not light. Right in the sweet-spot range for a good, basic IPA. Nice half-finger head which dissipated within a few minutes.

Nose- Slightly more grassy than I get with a lot of IPA's. That was the only note that stood out in my mind as being different than a lot of others in this style. Also, plentiful light Citrus. Perhaps some zesty citrus like lemon. Nice smell. Really solid. You know before you take a drink it's gonna be good.

Taste- Oh yeah, this one is good! Archetypical IPA- Perfect bitterness up front with a bit of malty finish you can tell it's got a good amount of malt backbone to balance it out. There is also that grassiness once more, this time in the taste in addition to the smell. As it warms I seem to get more pine as well. Great.

Overall- I really like this beer. I only was able to enjoy one the day I dropped by but I would no doubt get this any time I had the option to. If it were available in bottles/cans locally I'd love to keep a 6 pack in my fridge all the time. Really everything good about this style highlighted in a copper pint glass.
