Kentucky

4.23/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear amber with a frothy one inch light khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of lacing.

Grapefruit, pine, fresh cut grass, and sweet, bready malt form the initial aroma. Tropical notes of pineapple and mango emerge.

Flavor is a bit more subtle than anticipated at first, with underpinnings of citrus giving way quickly to bitter hops, all amidst a bready caramel malt backbone. Subsequent sips reveal sticky resin, lime, and a muddled general citrus character, which has become far more dominant. The finish is decidedly resinous and bitter. The malt backbone caves to the hop barrage.

Body is moderate and smooth, with moderate carbonation and a fair amount of alcohol warmth.

Expected more malt presence, but great hop character. Verges on being too bitter for my liking.

Serving type: bottle

4.23/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: light pale/orange. Not quite an amber at all. Very nice white head that leaves decent lacing.

Smell: sweet caramel malt, some raisins, nice light piney/earthy hoppiness

Taste: caramel malt with light pine/earthiness/spice. Taste so far is the best part of the beer (as it should be?). I expect a boring light amber ale and I get a unique flavor that is different from other "hoppy ambers" or IPAs. I like it. With each sip I like it more. The resiny/oily character and herbal quality come out with each sip

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Slightly sticky/oily.

Serving type: bottle
