COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

johndoughty (4157) - 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 (2309) - , 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.

Leicht trübes orangegelbes Bier mit viel leicht beigen Schaum. Geruch sehr kräftig malzig, reife Früchte, hopfig. Geschmack sehr hopfig, kräftig malzig, fruchtig, wenig bitter, süß.

rosenbergh (7925) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2014
1 pt can. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweet hoppy aroma. The flavour is sweet resiny hops with strong bitterness and sweetish maltiness. Strong.

Brandman (2274) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Golden body, white head. Aroma has lots of hops - resiny, herbal and some mellow fruits. Flavour is quite intense with caramelly bitterness and resiny hops. Finishes with some nice peachy mellowness. Quite spectre for one zip. Balanced bitterness, which turns to dry.

Saeglopur (715) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 6, 2014
Can from AlesByMail.co.uk. Orange to amber, moderate hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head. Very fruity aroma of citrus, orange, apricot, passion fruit, berries, resin, some pine. Taste with the same fruity aromas and a tasty malt backbone of biscuit, caramel, honey. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with grapefruit, grass, some pine and many fruit notes again. A tasty, lighter bodied IPA with a wonderful fruitiness and a greatly balanced malt backbone. The dryness in the finish makes it even easier to drink. Excellent!
