12 oz. can. Hazy orange body. Big white head. Nose is grapefruit and onion hops. Light pale malt. Tastes more of orange hops with a little pale malt sweetness. Has a kinda floral hop flavor around the edges. Moderate bitterness. Medium body. A little bit creamy. Better than I expected.

On tap. Look is medium orange and clear. Smell is pine and orange pith. Taste is fruity citrus that grows on you as you drink it. The malt muddies up the profile a bit for me. Feel is light And a touch sweet. Overall it is ok, but missing something to make it stand out

Draft, age unknown; doesn't taste old, but not is there a crisp freshness.
Basic AIPA, decent balance. Definitely worth having at least one.

I picked up a six pack at the Liquor Barn in Lexington while recently passing through Kentucky. It was canned on 04/19/16 and I'm pouring it in my 13oz. tulip for the occasion.

Look- Pours a reddish gold color leaving a small finger of white foam.

Smell- Pine, some grapefruit, malt and a hint of yeast.

Taste- Grapefruit zest followed by some pine and spice. There's a floral flavor in the finish along with some caramel malt.

Feel- Malty slick with a slightly bitter and spicy hop bite.

Overall- A drinkable beer, but nothing spectacular to report. It's too malt forward for my palate and lacking any significant hop flavor. I love trying new/local brews when traveling, I'll pass on this when I'm in Kentucky again.
