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.

Hazy amber beer with a tidy off white head. Minerally crisp palate. This malt base. Reasonable hops - orange peel and marmalade and fresh orange. Touch of lagerish paper. Finishes crisp. Much better than expected.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle, 12oz. A clear, dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head. There’s quite a lot of malts and grass on the nose, with pine cones and some lemon peel in between. It’s full bodied and quite sweetish on the palate, with a nice carbonation. Sort of sweet flavor, with a balancing bitterness. Hop pellets, pine cones and some resins too. A faint metallic touch chimes in towards the very end. Sure a drinkable one, but I’m far from impressed. Lacking quite a lot on the hops. 140512

Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
