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.

Suttree (5432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Clear orangey copper, nice white head. Smells like pine, the some bready, crackery malts. Seems a bit watery. Nice dry hops, and a bready, toasty malt base. Not bad.

Emeister84 (1456) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Aromas of earthy and citrusy hops. Clear golden-copper color with a diminishing white head. Well balanced, nothing to write home about, but quite drinkable.

pours a gold copper with a bubbly off white head. citrus aroma. Fairly bitter right from the get go. Not much citrus comes through in the palate. long bitter finish. Not bad.

Don’t piss in a bottle and tell me it’s an IPA. This stuff in not good. This is not an IPA. This is a light pale ale and not a very good one either.

unclemattie (4351) - 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.
