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.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark copper color with a 1-finger white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, hint of floral. Kind of light on the aroma. Taste is a bit malty up front with cerial, bread, citrus, and a hint of grapefruit and caramel in the background. Bitter finish that lingers for a minute. Palate is medium bodied, slick, oily texture, average carbonation. Very much a middle of the road IPA. Not too hoppy, not too malty, not too light. Worth a try, but nothing to seek out.

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.

16 oz can to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; malty though. A transparent dark orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells hoppy and a little boozy. Tastes like it smells with some sweetness and an average mouthfeel. Eh.

16oz can, shared. Clear copper orange color. Thin kind of bubbly off-white head, fades to minimal. Just a couple lose bits of lace. Medium-plus body, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of malty, sweet taste. Drinks more like a pale ale. Bigger caramel malt, some spicy hop. Moderate bitter taste, also moderate sweet. The can looked pretty cool, but the beer ended up being a disappointment

A present from the brewer’s rep at Bonnaroo! Sorry I forgot your name.but you Rock girl! Pours clear gold under a nice white head. Not overly hoppy but a good drinkable beer for those who like "some hops - but not too much". I’m looking forward to seeing this in the market here.

Yah, a twelve oonce bootle - she pours, forget that accent... Deep gold with off white head. Nose is citrus and pine. Flavor adds cereal and grapefruit. Has more flavor than the previous ratings would indicate. Actually the flavor gets weaker with each sip. Refreshing and a nice surprise from Lexington. Moderately bitter for the style and crisp. A good summer brew for a decent value. Jazz hands.

Draft at Cock & Bull Pub. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

16 ounce can. Malty base. But not overtly malty in taste. Lightly hopped. Not too much in the nose. Drinkable, but I’d like a stronger hop presence to add flavor and taste.

Aroma of light/moderate grapefruit and cereal malts. Appearance is tinted gold with sticky white head. Flavor is fairly sweet with some grapefruit; the finish is dry. Palate is is medium, chewy and soft. Certainly not West Sixth, but fine.

16oz can, no date but it just came out. The second ipa to be packaged in Fayette county. I sensing Dr. Lyons got mad that a package beer in Lexington was making his regular swill sit on the shelf. Why else would you make a 16oz canned ipa after West 6th made getting a local great ipa very easy. Ok enough rant and on to the beer. The aromas are more of malt and yeast than liberal dry hopping. There are hints of of citrusy hops in the nose but its bit as the label would suggest. Appearance is a nice light amber with insane clarity and nice but short lived white head. The flavors of clean malt and slight hops come through but the bite isn’t really there. The bitterness is more pale aleish tha ipa and one would almost think English ipa except it doesn’t have any other English qualities. The palate is on par not too heavy and not light, very drinkable. Overall I’d have to check how much I paid again for the 4 pack but if this was the only drinkable beer at a bar this would get my vote. I may not really dive into it again considering other local options that are done a bit better.
