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

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 (2183) - 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 (1840) - 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.

nick76 (4357) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2010
The aroma is very hoppy with pine, citrus, and grass. There is also some caramel malt but this one is mostly hops. The appearance is light amber with a nice foamy head that is large for the style. The taste is like the aroma bitter from the hops and an attempt to balance with caramel malt but that is killed by the hops. The palate is smooth and right for the style. Overall a hop lovers beer that is just a tad too astringent for me.

Pailhead (6249) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, oranges, and faint spicy and grapefruit hops. It pours a bright transparent amber with a quarter inch off-white head that fades to a thin film and slightly thicker ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with caramel and light orange flavors. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit along with some light spiciness. Light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall a tad light for my IPA preferences.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Tap at brewpub.
Pours an average amber with a nose of malty grapefruit bread. Flavor is acrid copper and grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. Iíll pass next time.
