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.

unclemattie (4320) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2014
12oz bottle. Orange color, no head. Aroma of C-note hops. Smells like an American IPA. Soap-like flavors. Heavy hops flavor. Loaded with hops florals, some pine & citrus. Nicely hopped. Malt backbone stands very well. Decent caramel malts, toasted cereal. Finishes with a hop bitterness tingle. This is an American IPA, all the way! Loaded with hops character, very well balanced.

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours orange gold with thin soapy head. Very floral aromas but more malty when tasted. The dry hopping comes nicely at the end. Not complex, but very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Clean, light caramel malt aroma. Rich gold color. White soapy lacing head. Clean start with an airy quality. All the substance on this one comes on the finish where its quite bitter, with a thicker mouthfeel.

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2014
16oz can, the dry hop gives the flavor of earthy, grassy hop taste, but the malt overtakes the taste of the hops. Decent, but not an ipa that I would buy another. With some tweaking to this brew, it has the potential.

KarlMcGowan (4) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 7, 2014 does not count
This beer has a beautiful aroma redolent with citrus and hops. However only the hops seem to come through to the flavour which though slightly disappointing still delivers a delicious classically bitter IPA.

Livendadream (141) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Btl pours hazy copper color.Small creamy head that lingers,leaving tiny bits of lace. Smells of light cookie dough malt and hints of citrus and floral hops.Tastes of sweet malt, orange pith and citrus flavored hops.Light body,smooth creamy texture, medium carbonation,dry light bitter finish. While this IPA does not have a complex flavor profile or a unique hop taste, it is balanced, yet simple and that makes it a very drinkable and sessionable beer.

From a can. Pours almost clear copper gold with a thin white head. Tastes like malt, grains, slightly nutty and sweet. Light body and low carbonation. Smells musky, malty, and like grains.
