Well balanced IPA. The hop flavor is lacking because of a stronger malt backbone. Very smooth but not a go to IPA

16 oz can. Pours a massive head with a slightly hazy orange body and aromas of floral hops with a little soap and citrus. Flavor is tangy citrus, but kind of a not quite ripe persimmon bitterness to it that sticks on my teeth. There is an overloaded front of grain that hits mid palate and then gives way to an almost tart citrus presence.

Big can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light floral and light citrusy hops plus pale malts and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best, probably because itís from Lexington.

On tap at the Lexington airport. A very unimpressive IPA. Bland hop notes with no real direction. Bitter and unbalanced. Below average mouthfeel and body...

Clear golden orange, frothy white head. SMell is light and herbal with citrus melon and squash. Flavor is again mild, some citrus, herbs, very light, low bitterness, slight acidity. Pleasant but not amazing.

The pale amber colored body was very clear, and the pour formed a nicely proportioned, two-finger thick, foamy head. The smell was grapefruit and mandarin oranges, and was very pleasing, but a bit mild. The taste once again showcased the citric hops, with lemony, grapefruity bitterness that was very much to my liking. There was a touch of sweetness and some light herbs in the finish. The body was a little on the light side. I enjoyed this beer.

Patrickctenchi (4398) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2013
16 oz can: Nearly clear, bubbly amber with a short, off-white head. Grapefruit, citrus aroma. Taste is caramel malt, piney hops. Decent and easy drinking.

If you like IPA, you need to taste this, its terribly on style. From the start its pungent hops, all the way down. Tastes like way more than 7%. I donít care for this style because this, like its style, rototills across your taste buds and down the throat. wew. Only thing that makes this almost palatable for me is the slight amount of thankful co2. Ruined my taste buds, cannot taste another beer today.

16oz can into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a thick one finger white head. Really good head retention and lacing thanks to some serious carbonation. Not bad. The aroma is very earthy and very dank. Wet leaves, tree bark, garlic, and onions along with weed. A tiny bit of toast from the malt underneath but hops really dominate. There is a little more fruit in the taste but still a lot of earthy, dank hops. A bit of orange and tangerine and a bit of citric tartness. The malt is caramel and toast but takes a back seat to the hops. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side with a strong bitterness and lingering mild sweetness. Overall, just a very run of the mill IPA. The earth and dank is a nice departure from the typical citrus IPAís but I canít say Iím really impressed. Iíll stick to the bourbon barrel ale.
