Kentucky

3.6/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Draft poured into a snifter

A: Pours a clear golden yellow with a finger of dense white foam.

S: Aroma is intensely hoppy with bright citrus fruits and a little bit of earthiness.

T/M: Flavor follows suit with more grapefruit, lemon zest, some more piney hops, followed by bready malts and earthy grains. Some caramel sweetness and low to medium carbonation make it quite smooth. A tiny alcohol bite lingers on the finish.

A very palatable experience.

4.26/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Orange/Copper, 1" head that quickly settles and leaves some decent lace. Looks inviting!

S: Wow! Much more here than I expected. Grapefruit, sweet oranges, pineapple, white grapes. Big alcohol at first whiff but that disappears shortly after. Its got some warmth though.

T The citrus and sweet tropical fruit is there but its more subdued than in the smell. The caramel comes in as well as some of the earthy/spicy notes. Its very good.

M: Light to medium body. Light carbonation. Medium oil/resin.

Virginia

4/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a golden body, somewhat clear and orangish, along with two finger head and minor lace patches and a aroma that is very hoppy, citric and possible grape but mostly earthy and somewhat fresh smelling. Smooth, light to medium bodied, the hops aren't overkill in this beer but are just very hoppy and have enough caramel/bread malt to offer balance and a touch of sweetness and overall just a good sipping "DIPA".
