COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Jack is just about the perfect beer for summer. Grapefruit, tropical fruits and citrus flavours from the Citra and Amarillo hops are apparent in the aroma and taste. But we decided to go one step further and actually make it the perfect summer beer. Beginning this spring (2016), we’re adding grapefruit juice to some of our Lucky Jack tanks. Now you can have all the flavour of Lucky Jack with a twist: a perfect medley of citrus from the addition of grapefruit juice. It’s beautifully refershing on a hot summer day on the deck or at the beach.

Malts: Pilsner and Caramel.
Hops. Perle, Citra, Amarillo, Chinook.

Aroma: grapfruit and citrus.

Food pairings: BBQ chicken and ribs, tortillas and guachamole, fresh fruit salad.Inspirert av iddisen Senior, Stavanger Norway.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 18B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch KL09:39. AROMA: moderate hop aroma with floral / tropical notes (passionfruit, some grapefruit). Almost neutral background with a slight sweet malty presence. APPEARANCE: gold color and clear. moderate white head, creamy, with medium to good retention. TASTE: moderate hop flavor similar to aroma, dominating the presentation, with floral / tropical notes (mild passionfruit, faint grapefruit). Almost neutral grainy malt background, with a very faint sweetness to support hops. Moderate bitterness that lasts beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation. no hop astrngency. OVERALL: a very nice American Pale ale with good hop presence, good drinkability and with a more neutral malt presence.

Nonshaugen (398) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2016
33 cl, can conditioned. Golden amber, creamy one-finger off-white head medium carbonation, LOTS of sediments giving it a murky/dirty appearance. Aroma-wise the american hops hit your nose within a second after you crack the can open. It’s piny, grassy and citrusy. Mouthfeel is dry, dank, sticky Taste is hoppy and bitter, grapefruit up front. And maybe some flavours from the yeast, I’m not sure. Not the best APA around.
