Did someone say there is a hop shortage? This beer might be to blame! Lucky Day has a firm upfront bitterness, a soft mid-palate, and a resinous lingering bitterness that is sure to appease any hop lover. This beer is loaded with tropical fruit, citrusy and pungent hop flavor and then heavily dry-hopped to achieve its intoxicating aroma.

Can @ Travlr’s Satellite 10k Shindig. Gold pour with a small head. Tastes slightly faded. A bit of caramel biscuit. Orange peel. Grassy meadow. Flavor is moderately sweet for the style. Orange and more caramel. Lemon spritz on the finish. Dried nicely. OK.

Can from Bottle Dog, Kings X, London. Very cool looking can. Hazy orange pour with a meek white head. Beak had some enticing resinous piney hoppage married with some orange/tropical fruit notes. Flavour was similar with very tasty fruit, a little caramel, a hint of ganja and some winning bitterness. Hops representing lovely. Lengthy bitter finish. Great stuff.

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Can. Hoppy with some fruitiness. Really in your face, nothing subtle about it. This is what it is-a strong IPA. Don’t try if you are in to delicate flavours.

planky84 (2878) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Can from Ales by Mail. Quite an explosive opening. Light amber pour with an off-white head. Bags of citrus fruit in the aroma with notes of apricot. Citrus burst in the flavour with a splash of vanilla and peach. Lots of tingly fruit on the tongue. Pleasant bitter finish. Nice.

Can 473ml (ABM)
Hazy orange color, big cloudy head, some lace. Gooseberry, melon jam in the nose. Medium-bodied. Lots of gooseberries, citrus, some sweetish tropical fruityness in the background. American hops showcase with strong malt base. Feels more like DIPA. Probably fresh from tap adds few points.
