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.

Tometclo (22) - FRANCE - MAR 15, 2015
Une fine mousse blanche, une robe orangée. Au nez le houblon est très présent, au goût l’amertume est forte mais courte. C’est ma première bière US, une IPA dont l’amertume est moins enveloppée que les IPA européennes déjà goûtées. 355 ml V&B Langueux

Bottle - clear gold with slim white head. Aroma of light citrus hops, light fruit. Similar in the taste, some sweetness, some late bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not really an IPA.

venom666 (476) - Elche, SPAIN - FEB 9, 2015
Clear amber color with low retention white head. Aroma has citrus, slightly tropical fruits, yeast and some floral hints. Taste follows the aroma, with not malt presence whatsoever. Aftertaste is slightly watery and not much bitter. Not enough hoppy to be an IPA, but it’s good though.

patrick767 (3696) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2015
bottle - Pours clear gold with a one finger white head. It smells mostly of citrus hops and some mild bready malt. It’s moderately bitter, on the light side of bitterness for an IPA, with some citrus character. Medium bodied and decent, but below average for the style.

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 (7108) - 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.
