COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We like to think this is an ale for everyone who believes you make your own luck. We sure did. And the result is a well-balanced, soulful IPA with just the right amount of hoppiness. An even keeled ale that goes down clean and refreshing, but still lets you know it’s been doted on by the Brewmaster. It’s true to it’s IPA heritage, but also highly drinkable. Lucky U. And we seriously mean that.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2011 bottle in West LaFayette. OK for Hops level and some aromatics but mostly dry hops. Fairly nice lacing but just OK as an IPA. 2/2011 Another bottle, not quite an IPA, maybe a pale ale

had on 2010-04-19 @ the Houston FS- why? because its the only beer i hadn’t had at the FS and that’s it, but is this actually a good breckenridge beer.. hell no! .. . Pours a light tan, low head .. muddled and insulting .. hides the abv well but too screwed up and not well made.. I was not even surprised at all that this beer was garbage, i went in with hope and got the good ole breckenridge charm .. . avoid this! .. . Oh good. I was worried you’d choose mad cow.

Amber with white head. Aroma of aged hops. Taste of hops with malty sweetness. Bitter, good finish. Not a very hoppy IPA and very approachable.

rader58 (815) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2010
Pours a slightly cloudy copper color. Aroma of grass, toasted malt and grain. Flavor of grass and grain with a slightly sweet molasses midway through. Finish is bitter and grassy.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pour is bright clear coppery amber with a nice fluffy off white head...smell is nice and mildly hoppy with some grapefruit and soapy resin scents...taste is much less mild than the scent leads you to believe....a nice subtle sweet up front and lightly dotting its way all of the way through to the finish, creating a nice sweet backbone for the resiny goodness on the top and forefront of the tongue...a nice lingeringly soapy bitterness finishes it out...

That1Guy (2030) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2010
Not a whole lot to offer. Mild hop nose. Mild hop flavor. Lots of stale malt flavor as well. Not very well balanced and very weak. Easy to drink quickly, but not much to offer. Wish I had been luckier.

GranvilleTim (1767) - Granville, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2010
Light amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma of hops. Taste is spicy, hops, little malt. Leaves a spicy aftertaste. Nice lacing, head lasted till the end.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Fireworks. Slightly hazy amber orange pour with a frothy white head. A pleasant pine nose with notes of light malt and a bit of biscuit. On the palate, the malt and hops immediately begin a battle for supremacy. Buttery, English malts versus piney west coast hops. The malt wins out with notes of buttered toast and the pine hops are left crying in the back. A slight herbal character emerges as the beer warms. Medium body with medium carbonation and a medium finish. Pretty light in hops for an IPA. Nice lacing though!

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle. Very weak and way to smooth for a IPA. Poured an orange color. No head, no feel flavor. Mild hop flavors, citrus, no real hop bite. Not very lucky to have this one. Good thing I got this on a create your own and not a whole six pack of these.
