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.

BrewIPA (92) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pours a hazy gold red with thin head. Smells of nice hops. A lighter tasting IPAD with less hops than others. Decent, drinkable ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartzluke (390) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 23, 2015
12oz pour from refrigerated bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Clear orange, lots of carbonation, great lacing, decent head. Nose is citrusy, malty, and a little sweet. Body is medium and creamy. Taste is alright-- similar to nose, with decent bitterness and some sweet fruity notes underneath. Not my favorite IPA, but alright.

superspak (3489) - Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 7/15/2015. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of spicy pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/sticky/resinous mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice american IPA. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/pine/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

trapped (1409) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 22, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Clear looking copper red color, almost no head with a ring of whitish froth, no discernible aroma, low carbonation, interesting taste starting with honey-caramel continuing hoppy, quite abrupt bitter finish. Queer for an IPA this one.

Hazy amber with a thin head. Aroma is pretty mild, a slight nuttiness. Flavor is a little fruity, not especially hoppy, slight citrus finish. Okay.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2015
I a lighter IPA which tastes like a session ale...surprise to see it is all the way up at 6.2%. Taste is mostly floral hops with medium bitterness. Just enough malt backbone to balance out the hops. Meh.

hotstuff (4408) - Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Rated on 9-20-2013 (Bottle) The appearance of this beer when poured is a small ivory head that is mostly lasting, hazy amber body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, a lot of floaties, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, grassy, citrus hops, and a little floral. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops, grassy, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is bubbly and this IPA is medium bodied. A quaffable IPA that is not over-the-top hoppy tasting.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy, some herbs, toasted malt, and toffee. Flavor is similar, some orange flavor too. Thin palate and feel. Ok but not complex.
