Fills up the glass in an ambery gold color witt an almost white head on top. Comes off like you think an IPA should with a tad bit more malt. Very piney notes in the aroma and plenty of hops to be enjoyed by all.

Growler sent by drfabulous. Pours clear copper tinted golden with ample slightly off white head. Balanced but somewhat pedestrian nose. Bready slightly sweet malt with some crystal in there, mostly piney hop aroma that picks up some sweetness from the malt. Straight forward ipa, maybe a touch more on the malty side than I prefer, no flaws.

Great IPA. Sweet, fruity, and full bodied. Really refreshing and the citru flavors go a long way.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light-medium amber with a light head and curtains of lace. Typical IPA - caramel malt up front, covered by pine hops, only to reappear at the finish. However, it needs to be emphasized that this has great balance, is full of flavor, and doesnít overwhelm with hops. Well done.

Draught. Poured a nice amber color with a relatively thick white head. Nice level of hoppiness to this, though it is balanced well. I quite enjoyed this.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoyed in flight sample, pint and growlers from draught at the taproom and it has been consistently good. Pours a very slightly hazy golden-orange appearance with an ample fingerís thickness of head of moderate retention. The aroma is a balanced explosion of citrus floral and other subtle fruit notes which comofort and amuse me. The medium body and comftorbly soft carbonation carry and present the bold bitterness wonderfully and the bite is satisfied by the faint but ample hint of malty sweetness. This is a well-crafted IPA, which reminds me of many of my favorite IPAs but is itself original.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed on-tap @ Country Boy Brewing in Lexington, KY for $4. Tapped from a Creative Wooden Carved Tap Handle (they all are like this here) into a 16oz Pint Glass.
Aroma- Big huge complexed hop aroma! Tons of resin and citrus fruits all mixed together. Strong with a hint of the ABV.
Appearance- Received with a 1.5 finger of creamy head that has great retention. Has a dark copper body with a semi-hazy background. Leaves good lacing behind.
Flavor- Huge hop flavor with sweetness to back it up. Complexed once again with and bitterness level was out of this world high.
Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Chewy, but then finished a bit dull. Not much hop lingered afterwards.
Overall Impression- Another great IPA from a local brewery! I wish these IPAís could have different characters every time but a good IPA is a good IPA. Wonít be picky here!
