On-tap at Parkers Blue Ash Tavern, Cincinnati, OH

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color with bits of amber hues and no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy white head that died down, leaving lots of lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of citrus hops and notes of pine resin hops along with slight hints of caramel malts and a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has bold flavors but also isn't that difficult to drink.

Can to dogfish head tulip/goblet combo glass.

A. Murky dark amber color with healthy eggshell head that slowly retreats to a frothy head. Poor clarity. Substantial lacing.

S. Moderate fragrance. More tropical hops with notes of pineapple, apricots, grapefruit, and mango with a noticeable underlining of resin.

T. Moderately bitter. The resin comes through the from the hop profile with some citrus. A minor note of bootstrap leather. A decent amount of hops.

M. Moderately smooth, high carbonation, moderate body.

O. Not bad at all. Its my local ipa so that sums up a lot. It's not bad for my go to. I keep it around but compared to the big boys it comes up short. KY is out of the range of year round top shelf west coast ipas so it has developed a nice niche.
