Pours a light straw color with over a finger of head. The nose has notes of nice earthy hops. The flavor is fairly bland and the body is very thin for the style.

It's good, as far as the Kentucky brand goes. However, it's a pretty average tasting IPA. I probably won't buy it again, but I would recommend you try it.

Good IPA, it is what it is. Classic IPA and what you think of when it comes to this style. Really nice head that stays to the last drop. Good C+ beer

Poured into tulip. Moderate caramel head and moderate lacing. Yeast aroma. No citrus notes. Smooth, but no real distinguishing flavor. Moderate bitter aftertaste that I personally did not enjoy. Not a bad beer, but not to my tastes.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is of mild piney hops. The taste is piney hops with some malt, fairly dry palate. A pretty good beer.

Pours a clear, golden color. 1/3 inch of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of piney hops, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of caramel malt, hint of sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of piney hops, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of caramel malt, hint of sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and body, the sugar is the drawback.

Bottled
Golden bodied with big frothy white head that kind of sticks
Has a lovely citra-esque aroma citrus & nettles
The flavour is part UK IPA, part UK flowery bitter with a smidgeon of US IPA
It's a slight bit thin
Like everything in life balance is importance
& at £5 for 6 bottles this provides the financial balance for the expensive cost of craft ale
decent beer
