Enjoyed on-tap @ Mellow Mushroom in Lexington, KY for $4.50. Tapped from the Wooden Tap Handle w/ a 6 & Star on the top into a 16oz Pint Glass. One of the only locals on-tap here so had to go for it!
Aroma- Huge hops both citrus and fruity are the strongest part of this aroma. Distant sweetness and malt are included.
Appearance- Received wit h a 2 finger, creamy head that has great retention. Has a light-medium clear copper orange body. Leaves thick lacing behind. Perfect IPA appearance!
Flavor- Very fruity and hops galore. Can’t put my finger on them. Dry hopped and all. Medium Bitterness level.
Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, CREAMY, sweet fruits and citrus at finish.
Overall Impression- One of my favorite IPA’s I’ve had this summer (besides ones that I’ve had multiple times). Has an awesome creaminess and fruit character that kicks ass. Recommend if your in KY to try some of this!

Pours an orange-golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some melon, peach and grapefruit as well as some toasted bread and even a little caramel. Flavor follows suit. Medium bodied mouthfeel with desired activity. Overall, a great IPA. Definitely a fan and I can easily see this one becoming my go to local IPA. Just going to have to stick with buying it on tap or the occasional growler given that they don't date their cans.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.
A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam.
S- Nice aroma of equal parts grassy, slightly citrusy hops and cereal grain malt sweetness.
T- Some citrus in the front gives way to a sweet malt follow-through and some moderate bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink. Bitterness lingers but not too long. ABV is well-masked.
M- Slightly sharp but moist and quenching. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- A serviceable IPA that has some decent balance while still having that hop-forward flavor and bite.

served from a can into a tulip glass. assuming this beer is of good freshness, as it was bought in NKY.
pours a nice golden orange with a nice, foamy head that lingers on the glass and the top of the beer. somewhat hazy, but not as hazy as an unfiltered beer.
smells of pine, some grassy notes and a slight sweetness to it. they use centennial, colombus, cascade and citra hops in this beer so it comes across kind of west coast style, only a tad sweeter with the citra hops. the malt profile includes honey, which perhaps add the sweetness
on the tongue, this beer opens with a nice piney hop bite, not overly bitter, slight tropical notes and some sweetness. the malts play more than a west-coast style would, but not so much like more east-coast styles. some sweetness from the honey mixed with the hop bitterness. full-bodied mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. finishes dry. sometimes i got a sort of pungent, rare-steak-blood flavor left on the middle of the tongue.
overall, i like this beer. i'm proud of the KY for making it too (alma mater state). the hop profile is nice in this beer, the malts are nice too, and this brew ends up being solid. nothing amazing, but certainly an enjoyable beer.
