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.

The color is nectarine orange in the glass. The beer displays a 1 inch head on the pour, and itís capable of holding this for several minutes. (long enough to be thouroughly enjoyed.) Looking deep through the color, youíll see lively bubbles. The aroma smells exactly like an INDIA pale ale from 1694. wax, hickory, hop spice,earthen. The flavor starts smooth, quickly comes out with its potent hopping, lingers for a while, and finishes tart. Drink this if you want to relive the day. This is the best incarnation of the original style and I expect nothing less from those who would pay homage to the Tivoli Brewery.

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.

On tap at the Walnut Room. Very tasty beer, with a light aftertaste that makes me want to order more. Maybe it's not how IPA's are supposed to be but this is how I think IPA's should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a great brew. Very happy and refreshing. I had this at Elways in the Denver Airport while waiting for my flight to get cancelled so I could stay the night in Denver instead of getting where I needed to be.

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.

pottygok (486) - Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Aroma: Floral, citrus and pine hops -- very appealing. Appearance: Clear gold orange with a thick, white head. Taste: Medium bitterness with light sourness and light sweet in the finish. Palate: Heavy carbonation, crisp texture, full body, long finish. Overall: Itís a really, really tasty brew, but the hops seem to take over and dominate a bit too much. Still, a very enjoyable beer.

Breckenridge Lucky U IPA is a very sparkling, pretty clear, amber ale with a fine, white head that fades to a film and leaves delicate lacing on the glass. It has an aroma of pine and biscuity malt. The very smooth, soft medium body has a clean, gentle finish. It has a pretty mellow flavor with a nice pine bitterness and a little caramel in the malt. I wouldnít call this an IPA so much as a nice American pale ale. Itís super smooth and easy to drink.

Pours apricot with a solid lasting creamy head. Smells of burnt hop perfume and citrus. Full nectar with creamy effers. Nice! A fat malt bottom supports the needling hop presence. The finish is long and tasty.
