Now available at bars you've never heard of.

Balanced and definitely not bland, only American hops are used to brew this piney, citrusy IPA. We use Citra hops in the aroma and Amarrillo hops in the flavor, crafting a well-balanced, West-Coast style IPA with a nice caramel and toffee malt bill.

IBU: 65
Hops: Citra, Amarillo
Aroma: Citrusy, Piney, Complex

Thank you to my neighbor for bringing me this lovely IPA from the southern state of Kentucky... Not familiar with this Brewer, but it's a very solid IPA. Thank you!

Draft at brewery. Dark, cloudy amber, cap of foamy, bubbly head. Aroma is light, sweet, fruity. Taste has notes of citrus, caramel. Leaning towards the classic IPA style, with light citrus elements.

Tasted from a 12 oz can bought in Tennessee.

L - Dark gold color has slight haziness. There was a bit of visible sediment in the finish of the pour from the can. Off-white head is moderately active on the pour and finishes with a thin sheet and some lacing around the edge.

S - Hops are there, but the variety is indistinct. They seem loosely West Coast-like, with citrus and herbal characters. There is bready malt with some light caramel. The hops nose is disappointing, and I wonder if my can was aged beyond its prime.

T - The flavors are also a bit muddled and indistinct. The hops are a blend of citrus and herbal notes, and the malt has some bready sweetness but also a shade of wet paper or cardboard. Again, the flavors point to this being an aged example.

F - Medium to heavy body seems too heavy for the style. Moderate carbonation. Medium hops bitterness. No noticeable alcohol presence.

O - This is an OK pale ale or IPA with no serious flaws, but also no great selling points. I'd like to try a fresh sample to see if freshness improves the beer significantly.

This IPA has a very weird taste; however it’s a IPA so the ABV is 6.8% not bad for a pretty average beer.

Oops! This is a pass. On tap at Brixx Wood Fired Pizza n Hendersonville, TN. Strange color for an IPA. Color of a dark lager. Taste is? Like potpourri according to our bartender, Michael! No thanks.

Hipster Repellant IPA has a rather thin, off-white head, a deep orange, bubbly appearance, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of strong brown bread crust, and the flavor is of a similar character, with some bitterness. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Hipster Repellant IPA finishes medium dry.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Despite zero agitation, this beer came gushing out, resulting with a copper/orange color with several inches of head. Smell is of light pine. Taste is dank, resin, some pine, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

I tried this at Merle's Whiskey Kitchen in Louisville, KY. It poured a slightly hazy orangish with white head that left some lace. The scent had faint bitter citrus notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter citrus hop presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.
