Alltech Kentucky IPA – IPA

KY IPAVery few Kentucky breweries had a bottled (or canned) IPA in their everyday portfolio until recently – West 6th fixed that and now Altech/Lexington Brewing has released Kentucky IPA. Now I can enjoy my favorite style and support local breweries.

This newly released offering is available in 12 oz. 6-pack bottles and 4-pack 16 oz. cans. The can I had was not dated. A vigorous pour displayed a clear and bright pretty copper colored body. The large pillowy head slowly collapsed leaving random lacing and a solid cap.

The aroma was herbal and piney. Leafy and gently minty.  Perfume-y as it warmed.

The flavor was more bitter than sweet., just how I like IPAs. Hints of alcohol. Pine and oranges with a soft, lingering dry finish. The body was lighter than expected and had modest carbonation.

This one is easy to drink and I’m glad to have another accessible IPA in the Commonwealth.
