look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a can into a large wine glass. Golden honey color, hazy, with a giant foamy head that sticks around and then leaves good lacing as you drink.

Aroma is hoppy, maybe some citrus hops, a little floral.

Taste is where this one shines. Very hoppy up front, but not overly bitter on the backend so it is pleasant to drink, unlike a lot of IPAs.

Mouthfeel is carbonated, as expected from all the foam, but it works well with this beer.

Not sure that I would seek this one out, but compared to a lot of IPAs I find locally, this one is pretty drinkable.

Serving type: can
