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.

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 (5442) - 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.

Tap at brewpub.
Pours an average amber with a nose of malty grapefruit bread. Flavor is acrid copper and grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. I’ll pass next time.

Bottle pours amber orange with a thin white head. aroma is off... hoppy but theres a hint of something like nail polish or solvent like. taste is sweet inital with a lasting citrus and bitter finish. pretty smooth overall but not a very enjoyable pale ale.

CanIHave4Beers (3535) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Pours a lightly cloudy orange color with a medium head. The aroma is grainy with some biscuit notes & some citrus hops. The flavor is dry and kind of fruity with some citrus rind but it seems a bit faint all around.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2010
The pour is a clear, orange color with a medium, eggshell, fluffy, rocky head which is somewhat lasting and leaves some sporadic lace. The nose is simple with some ruby red grapefruit, cookie, light floral and spice. The nose is similar with a moderate bitterness, ruby red grapefruit, cookie, bitter floral notes, and herbal notes into the finish. The palate is watery, soft to lively, and light to medium. It finishes with a fairly mild bitterness, especially for the style, grapefruit still prominent and some herbs left on the tongue. A very simple, drinkable IPA which might be nice as a refreshing beer in the cold months. However, too many finishing hops to be an APA and not enough bitterness to be and IPA. Something to be expected from Breck.

It’s rare that I don’t like an IPA but this was one. Flat, and very bitter with no lingering on the tongue. Like an non-alc in this way. Maybe a bad batch, I don’t know, but won’t get again.
