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 itís been doted on by the Brewmaster. Itís true to itís IPA heritage, but also highly drinkable. Lucky U. And we seriously mean that.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Bottle courtesy of ratman. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of perfume, some hay, grassy, sage. Smells of resin, some peppery splashes, tea. Nice earthy finish.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Fairly easy drinking IPA. LIght citrus aroma, fairly dry on the tongue. Nothing to turn down, but nothing to look for either.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle from the Binnyís in Orland Park, IL: This came across more as an APA, but I may be spoiled by the many fine IPAs that Iíve been drinking locally lately. This had a copper/amber body with a modest off-white head but still managed to do some nice lacing. The aroma was a quiet citrusy hoppiness over some sweet grainy malt. The flavor was balanced between the malty sweetness and a moderately bitter grapefruit & pine hoppiness. It finished dry with a soft bitterness.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2010
(12 oz bottle). Pours a reddish-copper liquid with chunky off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, bubblegum. They are sutble and not over-powering. Very bitter at the start with mild sweetness detectable as the bitterness recedes. Feels unbalanced and thin. Ok beer.

jstraw (1964) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Red copper with scant, off-white head / Weak sour citrus and hop nose / Medium body, slightly sweet, malty with modest, but balanced hopping, and decent toasty, biting, finish / Flavors of burnt sugar, toast, and dry hops, with grapefruit and orange peel notes / A little clumsy, but still decent.

jjuf1853 (1301) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper amber color with a thin sudsy head. The aroma has a nice amount of piney hops and a touch of toffee malt. The flavor is nicely balanced for an IPA. A good amount of maltiness to pair with the hop bitterness. This seems like a good gateway beer for someone just begining to explore IPAs.

Terminus (3595) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2010
bottle-im not going to bash this beer like most people are i think its decent for what it is. I am not a fan of this brewery at all, but this beer was not bad. pours clear bright orange with a small soapy white head. nose is piney, earthy and lighly herbal with some tea like qualities. smells like they used both american and noble/brittish hops here. flavors are piney, resinous with a very lite malt backbone. long piney and earthy finish with a bit of resin. a little sessionable IPA that I thought was better than most people think it is, especially from this brewery.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2010
From bottle. Pours prototypical clear amber with small white head. Aroma is citrus and melon. Thin mouth feel. Big on fruity citrus floral hops, but also a little fruity ester in there, thus the melon. Pleasant bitter finish with alcohol well hidden. I really like this one, but Iím wondering if itís because I had it immediately after an imperial stout...oh well, Iíll rate it as I taste it. Scrumptious.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2010
BottleÖ Lightly hazy orange ale with a small, fluffy, white head that never fully dissipates and leaves some very intricate, Freudian lacing on the glass (my wife sees a dragon and a penis, but thatís probably the heroin talking). The lightly floral, earthy bouquet also yields notes of grapefruit and pine with a touch of biscuit. Barely medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor doesnít just lean on the bitter side of balance, it lives there. The hops are assertive, tannic, woody and biting while the biscuity, bready malt is only an afterthought. The lengthy finish is thin and heavily bitter.

Gold with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of grass and hops. Taste is of hops, grass and spice.
