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.

Nice floral hoppieness in this IPA which lends itself to a citrus flavour. Light white head and golden orange body. Refreshing

burnt orange pour with off white head. Fades quick, but lots of lacing. Aroma is fresh cut grass and citrus rind. taste is sweet and mild bitter. Love having Alltech near by. Descent first try. Please keep working on it.

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.

Nice. Smooth. Hoppy. I was apprehensive as I have had other Kentuckys and did not like them. This is nice. Nice bet color. Good body. Citrus aroma and a good bitter hit on first taste. Nice ipa. I recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fogarasia (3) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 3, 2014 does not count
A clear golden brownish with a correct white head. Malty, caramel flavour in the begining with a litle woody at the end. The taste is dry. Its had a pretty bitter grainy flavor with bits of citrus and a very light sweet aspect. You can feel a little almond flavor. At the end the a solid bitter taste hit your mouth. The moderate alcohol (6.5% ABV) doesn’t disturb the joyness of this spetial beer.

Oak and tea nose, moderate strength. Hazy orange, medium yellow head, decent lace. Oaky orange peel flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. Nicely balanced with good wood. Probably won’t appeal to the hop heads, but for those who appreciate quality and nuance, this was good.

Aroma is incredible for this beer. California hop aroma but taste is mild hop and easy to drink. Thin on tongue. In general a nice malty ipa with great aroma. Thin head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
