Getting My Beer On With Falls City Hipster Repellant IPA

A business trip down to the Lexington Area means a business trip where I can also find some local brews to sample, thus Hipster Repellant IPA from Falls City Beer was one that caught my eye by the design of the can. Falls City is based out of Louisville and this American IPA carries an ABV of 6.8% and an IBU level of 65. This is one that I had previously according to my Untappd check-ins but had not done a review and it is funny as we grow our universe how thoughts of beers change. Back when I first had it, I definitely ranked it higher than now.

This being said, I still found it to be a decent IPA providing the qualities expected of this style with the aroma as well as taste. There was that little medicinal flavor that can often be picked up with IPAs, but not to a point of being off-putting. There was a good amount of hoppiness and bitterness that accompanying the beer, and flavor wised there were those common notes of orange and tangerines. There was also a slight metallic taste from the can and I would classify a syrupy feel to the texture. The beer was dry on the finish like many of this style, but there was also sweetness from the malts as well. But overall, it was a decent enough IPA that I would say would satisfy a good amount of IPA fans. Check out the video to see and hear more of my thoughts on this one, and if you have had it then leave a comment letting me know what you thought of this ale.
