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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Nice gold pour with a decent off white head. Dull citrus notes in the nose. A little biscuit, malt, and citrus on the palate. Light to medium body. This one needs a bigger boost of hops.

phaleslu (8215) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Pours a totally clear gold with a small white head. The aroma brings some hop bitterness - slightly floral and citrusy - but the rest of this has a big sweet corn note, with other sweet malts, grass, and straw. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not really the kind of IPA I like.

lbianchi66 (224) - FRANCE - NOV 20, 2014
Robe blonde, légèrement cuivrée. La mousse ne tien pas. Arômes du cascade très présents avec des saveurs dominantes d’agrumes. L’équilibre amertume/arômes est plutôt réussi. Malheureusement, elle est courte en bouche. Légèrement âpre. Arrière goût de feijoa et de pêche. Une IPA honnête, mais j’ai connu bien mieux.

Foxbush (1623) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2015 12 oz bottle The IPA poured a cloudy light amber with small off white head and no lacing. Citrus greets your pose and maybe some pine resin. The ale had a medium body with soft carbonation. The flavor is dominated by what taste like drinking green pine cones. There is a faint faint metallic touch that is noticed. Finish has a bitterness in the upper mouth. This tasting the IPA poured a clear amber color with small head and lacing. Taste like a commercial big brewer IPA.

Bottle pour. Shiney clear, light amber color. Palate is smooth and thin ith a mild bitter flavor. It has a dry after taste.

rondphoto (3345) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 29, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber color, fluffy 1" white head, a few dots of lace. Taste is light malt that moves to light hops in the finish. An "excuse me" beer, with minimal flavor, not enough to be bad or good.

It’s okay. Not a lot going on sadly. Aroma is missing something I can’t figure out what it is. I got a faint aroma of peach but that was about it. It’s appearance is beautiful but it’s just missing something. Taste is okay. Not too bitter just kind of weird. Has a little bit of peach but again I don’t know why but something is missing here. Not terrible, I would try it again to see. Maybe on draft it would be excellent.

Itzjerm (1901) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Aroma is incredible for this beer. California hop aroma but taste is mild hop and easy to drink. Thin on tongue. In general a nice malty ipa with great aroma. Thin head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
