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.

Derek881 (1040) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 15, 2014
Poured from a tall can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a semi clear amber-copper color with a modest, foamy white head that had fairly short retention, and light cling and lacing. Its aroma had citrus and grainy notes, with a floral component, along with some touches of yeast and barley. The taste had a pretty bitter grainy flavor with bits of citrus and a very light sweet aspect. It was a fairly thin beer in terms of mouthfeel, with average carbonation, and a dry body.

5/15/2014. 12 oz. bottle. Clear amber color with a white head. Caramel and light hoppy aromas with tropical fruit flavors and a hoppy finish. Not overly complex or interesting.

yngwie (14863) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle, 12oz. A clear, dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head. There’s quite a lot of malts and grass on the nose, with pine cones and some lemon peel in between. It’s full bodied and quite sweetish on the palate, with a nice carbonation. Sort of sweet flavor, with a balancing bitterness. Hop pellets, pine cones and some resins too. A faint metallic touch chimes in towards the very end. Sure a drinkable one, but I’m far from impressed. Lacking quite a lot on the hops. 140512

Lore (1389) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 25, 2014
darker golden colour, some white head; aroma and taste of significant maltyness as well as hoppy bitterness with citrussy-floral notes; nothing noticeable

CpyNPrnT (478) - Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2014
Aroma is some floral hops, taste is citrus, floral hops, mild bitterness, a ting of alcohol. No real malt presence. So-so.

Nice floral hoppieness in this IPA which lends itself to a citrus flavour. Light white head and golden orange body. Refreshing
