Just a fantastic beer! Just a great combo pine and citrus. If you are ever in Lexington, Kentucky, you have to check this place out. They are on a one brewery mission to gentrify an entire neighborhood with a very cool brewery at the center of it all! Lot's of incredible one off flavors on tap!

Poured from can into teku. Pours slightly hazy orange with a single finger white head. Smell is very tropical, lots of pineapple, piney. Taste is also full of tropical flavors, grapefruit, pineapple, orange, slightly bready, pine resin, perfect hop presence, almost no malt caricature, texture is as expected. Overall I am very impressed with this ipa, it's very balanced, not a hop bomb, and a great west coast style profile. I love the consistancy. This is my first W6 brew, and I'm impressed.

While chilling at the brewery I decided to sample the IPA right off the bat from the tap. It really does not get any better.
The look is a bit darker orange than other similar beers.
The smell is straight up dank fruit and hop extravagance.
Taste is hoppy, hidden alcohol, and fruit essence.
Out in front the mouth feels tingly with carbonation that subsides after you have finished about 3/4 of the pint, and happy with the alcohol content.
Overall I may be a bit biased considering I live here in Lexington,KY. But I truly feel this is compRable to Bell's 2 hearted ale, similar look, taste, alcohol content, and possibly hops. Cannot wait to grab another growler!
