Great IPA that is lower ABV than most. Great balance with an awesome aroma.

It's pretty tasty. Probably nothing I would actively look for again, but if I saw it on tap amongst the usual crap, I would get it again.

A- straw copper color, loose foamy head.

S- dank apricot, sweet tobacco,lemon grass.

T- herbal grapefruit, some dark fruit dank. A light to moderate bitterness. My guess low 60ish ibu. Dry on the back end with floods of crystal malt and dank fruit lingering. a bit of cheap pale malt alchohol in the aftertaste.

M- medium body. Average carbonation.

O- the beer lives up to the description. Loads of hop flavor backed up by some crystal malt to balance. Exelent example of an American dry hopped ipa. Enjoy!

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Purchased at Liquor Barn in Hamburg area of Lexington.

L: Hazy orange color, thin layer of lacy head
S: Very floral, grapefruit smell, earthy
T: Matched the nose, but it was a little dry. Grapefruit was prominent with a rough malty finish.
F: Lacy finish, very malty.

A little concerned about the freshness...hard to make out, but I believe the bottle code is I173. Either way, it was not the most pleasant IPA I've had recently.
