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.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Sample poured from a bottle at Cincy Beerfest. Pours a clear amber color with an active off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel malt, citrus, and not much else. Flavor of bitter grassy hops, citrus, toast, caramel, and light resin. Bitter and earthy. Light-medium bodied with active carbonation. Dry finish. Decent IPA, though not a standout in any particular way.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Honey color with a big bubbled white head. Aroma has some citrus and caramel...not much else. Flavor is bitter and a bit nasty. Not all that great. Live rate baby!

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Transparent copper topped by a thin white head. Aggressive nose has significant hop, some toast as balance, and a strong citrus presence in grapefruit. Flavor is split between the aggressive hop and biscuit notes, but balanced is not achieved. An incredibly short, grainy finish, lightly drying and salty. The hop notes are unbalanced throughout the experience and somewhat harsh, but this is still worth trying.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle from the Fort Worth Saucer. Small floral hops aroma. Not a lot of flavor. A little bitter, some semi-sweet notes. Really just not a lot going on.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours a clear deep amber with a 1 finger frothy off white head that has good retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is light citrus, grass, caramel, raw grain and mineral notes. Flavor is sweet grainy malt up front, a little light caramel, nice citrus hops, a little grassy bitterness, and a little butter near the finish. Finishes slightly bitter with a planty, citrus and mineral end. Palate is fairly light bodied with a neutral, slightly oily entry and dry finish. This is a very nice, crisp and tasty IPA, itís not perfect, but would make a nice session brew - especially in the warmer months.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours crystal clear light amber wit a one finger thick off-white head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is malt, earthy hops and light citrus. The taste is malt, faint citrus and a strange soapy bitter resin-like finish. Medium bodied. Interesting IPA. Not one Iíd revisit.

graham515 (536) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Pours a somewhat murky amber into the glass with a tiny white head. Aroma is caramel malt with a hint of citrus hops. Not really what Iíd expect from an American IPA. Much resembles its cousin from England. Bitterness is assertive, but malt still shines through. Balanced and drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle: Pours a clear copper amber with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a fairly fresh citrusy hop nose with some light pale maltiness. Starts semi-sweet with decent body and good resiny assertive hop flavor and bitterness tending toward a drier, crisp, piny bittersweet finish. An enjoyable and drinkable IPA.

jport4087 (178) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Pours amber with whitish head. Aroma is caramel malts, hops, and some citrus. Flavor is bitter hops, caramel malts, come citrus and a touch of pine. Oily mouthfeel. Nice solid IPA. Good not great
