4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is my favorite IPA. I live in Louisville and most of taprooms I go to have West Sixth IPA on tap and it is very good. But I bought a 6pack and it as not as good. Too sour on the sides of the tongue. So my ranking based on draft beer. I talked to a brewery rep once and he said they use cans because it keeps the beer fresher. The are proud that they are one of few craft breweries the to able to can beer. But I think the can makes it look cheap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange with small head. Aroma is citrusy hops with some pine resin. Taste is a nice blend of sweet and bitter. Finish is very mild with only a hit of hoppy bitterness. The sweetness dominates a bit too much throughout. Mouthfeel is a bit thick for what Iíd expect with an IPA; would like more carbonation as well. Overall solid but not something I would seek out. This is sort of a Stone IPA light (which is a high compliment), but really, when Iím drinking an IPA I want it to completely decimate my palate and send me to depths of hop heaven (or hell?), which this doesnít do.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark orange with a large white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, hops, oranges, and grapefruit. Taste is pine, citrus and hops with strong bread and caramel malt taste almost dominating. Nice finish with the hop bitterness coming through. Very nice mouth feel with a somewhat thick and creamy texture and an active but low carbonation. Overall a decent IPA. Definitely different from most.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very Piney Hop forward flavor along with toffee and malty notes; A bit imbalanced with the heavy hops. Mouth is also a bit light and watery but easy to drink still. Overall a solid IPA despite some shortcomings

12 oz. can. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with two fingers of off-white head that eventually lace the glass.

Light-medium bodied, with a dry, resinous, bitter mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Dry finish. Bitterness lingers. Solid IPA from a new brewer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy amber/orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head after a strong pour. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice, it smells like pine and citrusy (mango, light tropical fruit) hops, and some bready and caramel malt. It gets more and more citrusy the longer it warms. I think the taste is the same as the aroma, itís mostly citrusy and pine hops, along with some bready and caramel malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís smooth and easy to drink. Itís a good IPA overall, I wonít have any problems finishing this 6-pack. $9.99 a sixer.
