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.

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.

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.

Itís rare that I donít 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 donít know, but wonít get again.

mybrainhurts (370) - North Dakota, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Orange-ish pour, short lasting white puffy head. Aroma is not real hot. Some grains, dusty hops, Micky Dís french fries. Flavors of caramel, burnt toast, and citrus. Oily, earthy, and a rather harsh finish. This is a mess. I like the small batch beers from these guys. Everything else seems blah.

Light copper pour with minimal head. Light citrus hoppy aroma and flavor. A good, if somewhat light IPA.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear red-copper-orange with off white foamy head which sicks around. Smells of hops, lemon citrus, slight buttered chicken like smell. Taste is pretty balanced but hop dominating, water noticeable, hard to characterize the malts. This is not bad, drinkable, sure, sessionable, though it wouldnít be my first pick.

obguthr (4313) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Draft at Brewvival: Orange peel and tea nose. Hazy amber, thin head. Dry malty flavor of tea, with a tinny finish. Distinctly an English style IPA, fairly nice.

Pours a slightly hazy copper. Clean light and slightly fruity hop aroma. Flavor is not overwhelmingly hoppy, which is nice for a change. Theres a good hint of background bitterness though. Crisp and Dry. Not bad.
