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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a smallish frothy white head that goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet melon with some grassy, fruity, spicy floral hops.

The flavor is vegetal malts with some charry bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and watery. As it warms, itís not as bad, but any decent hop flavors (fruits, spicy florals) trying to peek through get washed out by the watery body.

Overall, after an interesting pour, a bit of a disappointment. Itís very watery and not very appealing flavor-wise.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 Clear gold, frothy off-white head. Aroma of mild pine and citrus. Taste is mildly bitter with caramel malt balance. Good smooth IPA but not as much punch as others....4 oz sample on cask. Aroma is buttery with mild hop. Taste seems a little oxidized like most cask ales that Iíve had. I just donít find myself ever enjoying a cask more than a bottle or normal CO2 tap.

Aroma - extremely floral, citrus, fruity; Appearance - deep copper, slightly opaque, fluffy head, laces wonderfully; Taste - quick malt front, complex hop back, finish has a mild tang and the faint flavor of apple; Palate - pretty smooth, excellent body; Overall - very drinkable for the style, great flavor though without the typically high ABV.

I say this right off the bat, its a clean IPA taste. You could most certainly throw down quite a few of these before you knew anything hit ya. Its merly a thin pour of light amber color, balanced and rich with citrusy hops, barely any bitter finish though. This would be a good lunch time beer, out with a few cooworkers.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Cavie) Pours a clear orange body with a moderate white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, florals, and subtle citrus notes. Flavor of hops (pine, citrus) and caramel malt with a watery mouthfeel.

Kenbeer30 (44) - Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Good, but not great. Nice rich copper color and 1/2 inch head. Nose is grassy hops with citrus notes. Taste is as the nose promises. You can sure taste the hops over the nice malt, but it is not a huge IPA. Could be called a hoppy red ale instead. Good. I will drink the other 5 bottles.

BeerandBlues2 (9588) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Draught at Breckenridge Brewery at the Ballpark. Pours clear copper with a low, fizzy white head, fair retention and lacing. Aroma is medium grainy and straw malt, pine and earthy hops, sweaty yeast. Flavor is bitter citrus and pine hops, some resin with light malty background, sweaty yeast and apricot notes. Medium body, high carbonation, and a dry finish.

thegreenrooster (3189) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is floral pine hops and a bit of biscuit like malt. Flavor is some subtle hops with a little malt in the backround. Servicable but not mind blowing.

Pours to a hazy bright orange-red, with thick off-white head that last long and leaves good lacing. Nose immediate is overwhelmed with a pleasant hoppy citrus grapefruit, mouthfeel full wth some tingle and nice bitter-dry sensation. Taste picks up the tangy grapefruit of the nose and blends in a touch of malty sweetness. This all rounds to a finish that is just the right amount of bitter and long lasting. Probably the best Iíve had from Breckenridge.

Bottle. Pours a rustic orange body with a thin white lacing. Hoppy grass y pine, and earth with a light metallic tone. A hint of honey and some light earth y flower y herbal notes. Soft palate that a bit drying and bittering. Okay.
