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 an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of of slight citrus hops with caramel malts. Flavor mostly sweet of the caramel malts. Still has some some hops but not too much.

A decent beer, this had the standard flavor of an IPA but nothing really stood out. Just okay.

Brenhophead (681) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2015
355mL can that ours a clear honey hue with a dense white head. Has that very American piney/grapefruit caramel aroma. More of a subdued caramel grapefruit in the flavour. Not the best but hard to say because i donít think its fresh.

hfmejias (1225) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured orange, clear, nice off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Citrus aroma, some piney hops and a bit of malts. Taste has nice bitter and hoppy notes, some malts and some tropical fruits. Very tasty, highly enjoyable. Not bad at all.

andrewje41 (2405) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Draft pour at the Field location. Rating from notes. Golden copper pour with an infinite amount of foam head and lacing. Bitter hop aroma and flavor dominant. Very creamy body. Smooth flavor, but overall basic. Plain IPA, but not bad.

bartzluke (519) - 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 (4236) - 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 (1959) - 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.
