Can to pint (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; an opaque malty orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells good; very hoppy for a regular IPA. Tastes like it smells with excellent balance and mouthfeel. This is an outstanding IPA!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed on-tap @ Mellow Mushroom in Lexington, KY for $4.50. Tapped from the Wooden Tap Handle w/ a 6 & Star on the top into a 16oz Pint Glass. One of the only locals on-tap here so had to go for it!
Aroma- Huge hops both citrus and fruity are the strongest part of this aroma. Distant sweetness and malt are included.
Appearance- Received wit h a 2 finger, creamy head that has great retention. Has a light-medium clear copper orange body. Leaves thick lacing behind. Perfect IPA appearance!
Flavor- Very fruity and hops galore. Canít put my finger on them. Dry hopped and all. Medium Bitterness level.
Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, CREAMY, sweet fruits and citrus at finish.
Overall Impression- One of my favorite IPAís Iíve had this summer (besides ones that Iíve had multiple times). Has an awesome creaminess and fruit character that kicks ass. Recommend if your in KY to try some of this!

It poured an amber/orange color with a slight orange head. The aroma was of orange, grapefruit, a bit of peach and some caramel. The taste was citrus, grass, a bit of spiciness and some malt body. This was a very good IPA, wish I had bought more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Aroma leaves little else to imagine as the appearance is pale straw with a light smokey character. Taste starts with a light fresh orange peel and finishes with a ripe mango that lingers long enough for another tease of a taste. Overall this IPA is a wonderful surprise that gives local KY drinkers another alcoholic feat that this state has mastered.
