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.

CelticBrew (830) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Poured from 12 oz bottle a medium copper, forming a very thin and watery head that didnít last. Aroma was of light malts, not much else yet. Flavor was of a metallic bitterness, rounded off with malts. Mouthful is thin, lacing nearly non-existent. Unimpressive, barely drinkable. Disappointing IPA.

Slubgob (188) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle into tulip. Orange hue, no head. Very thin white lacing. Fairly malty nose hint of orange peel. Thicker malty mouth feel, modest hope. Decent, if unremarkable.

slowrunner77 (5985) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2014
"another decent session ipa, but a little too mellow and unassuming to standout. the average of 3.0 going in seems a bit harsh, though. grapefruity hops and a decent carmel malt backbone. nothing stands out, nothing is bad."

Malt aroma right off the bat. To taste you pick up hints of caramel and more malts, not much hops. Lingers nicely, great for malt lovers.

Can. Pours hazy bright orange with white head. Aroma is oranges, sweet fruits. Taste is a bit chemically, oranges, bitter finish. Meh.

RABinCO (1373) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Can into a glass. Orange/copper pour, thin head. Aroma is orange zest, grass, slightly metallic. Taste is orange, grass, bitter, piney, sweet, slight malt backbone. Sticky, resiny finish. Not bad, pretty average.

alobar (2808) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours an orange-copper color with aroma of pine, grapefruit, and floral notes. Citrus, caramel sweetness with some pine and very mild hop bitterness. Decent beer.

TattooJack (114) - Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 Poured from the can into my favorite pint glass. To start with the can is very eye pleasing the picture looks like some old school tattoo flash, and the color of the can almost matches the beer. Pours a coupla two-tree fingers of root beer float looking foam on top of this orange tasty beer. Iím not sure if this beer should be called an IPA but itís very good. Lucky Me for buying it!

bwa5879 (689) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a very dark orange, almost brown. Very cloudy with eighth inch of khaki head. Great nose - citrus and floral hops, strong aromatic tropical fruits, creaminess detectable as well as carmel malt. Lively carbonation, tingly mouthfeel, slightly scaly finish. Tropical fruits and melon flavor, some citrus, carmel malts, strong astringent spruce too.

akoeninger (459) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Copperish color with a grapefruit and herbal hop aroma. The taste is again grapefruit but with more balanced sweetness from the malts. Overall tastes more earthy in the finish. A hint of a metallic aftertaste which may be the result of an old bottle or something. All in all a good to average beer would like to try a fresher sample. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
