COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentucky IPA® is a deliciously hoppy, golden-hued American India Pale Ale. It has bright citrus flavors and sweet floral aromas that come from liberal dry-hopping with American hops. The India Pale Ale style is the fastest growing craft beer style on the US market.

Kentucky IPA® is the first canned beer produced by Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co. and is sold in 4-packs of 16-ounce cans. This format is ideal for sporting events, outdoor concerts, at the beach and other places where glass is not permitted. Kentucky IPA is also available in bottles and on draft.

Cybercat (3984) - Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Pours slightly hazy ambr with a decent eggshell head that leaves good lacing. Hops comprise nearly all the otherwise typical aroma. Flavor is hoppy and fairly bitter, and a hint of malt pops up. Fizz is strong but body is average. Fair to middlin’, but enjoyable.

Aroma is light pine, spices and mild bread notes. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, fruit and a tart/slightly bitter finish.

ChtiBreizh (127) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAY 19, 2015
Light amber with creamy head. Floral, caramel, hoppy bitterness that is average for an ipa. Lack of homogeneity for me between initial caramel, malty and final bitterness. A little watery too. Big bubbles. Ok.

Grumbo (858) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle bought at Dublin Airport. Poured a golden orange colour, slightly cloudy, with a decent sized white head. Aroma is hoppy, not that strong, with citrus notes. Taste is toward heavy on bitterness, medium body, average carbonation, with a hoppy bitterness to finish. I do like IPA’s with a good level of bitterness and this was an enjoyable beer.

Iphonephan (4306) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Grassy nose. Flavors of citrus and alfalfa (or Kentucky bluegrass?). Decent.

Bloke (18) - Wei Hai, CHINA - APR 6, 2015
Solid IPA that wasn’t too hoppy nor bitter, perhaps a bit lite on both for my tastes.

ads135 (3357) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - APR 6, 2015
Very mellow IPA with low bitterness. If this weren’t so alcoholic, it would make a decent session IPA. As it is, it just comes off as underwhelming in flavor.
