COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Bucketís Original American IPA begins with a nice malt bill that lets the brew stand up to the mountain of hops added later. After the boil, the hot wort (the beer before itís really beer) is fired through a hop back, a unique four-barrel stainless steel tank filled with a gratuitous amount of raw flower Amarillo, Centennial, and Cascade hops, extracting the aromatic oils and flavor of the hops. Followed with additional dry hopping in the fermenter, the end result is a big, well-balanced West Coast-style IPA with terrific hop flavor and aroma.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Dripping with resinous hops, this IPA packs a surprisingly bitter punch, wringing every last west coast IBU from the recipe. The malts give a grainy, meek background, one barely noticeable in the face of such massive piney massiveness. Good nose, even with a hint of metallic ick. The texture isnít that great-- the beer seems overcarbonated and spiky, too harsh when coupled with a sandpaper-dry finish. Good but one is plenty.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Hazy amber with a medium brown head. Aroma of pale malt, citrus, resinous, earthy and danky hops. Taste is earthy with moderately sweet pale malt, citrus, bready malt and mild bitterness.

piscator34 (2198) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottled sample. Clear copper in colour with fairly strong carbonation. PIne lumber upfront in the nose, backed by sme white grapefruit, nutty malts and faint caramel. More pine wood in the mouth, but it takes on an additional sap quality as well. White grapefruit shows up a bit more here too. Solid chunky black pepper bitterness. I didnít get a whole lot of Amarillo notes out of this beer, but Cascade and Centennial are here in spades. A solid (somewhat safe) IPA overall. Good.

ElGaucho (2340) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. 2nd time Iíve had this. Aroma nothing special. Flavor is really nice though. Has similar hop to that in north coast white hawk ipa. Really like it.

beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 19, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 IPA glass. Pours a cloudy bronze with a thick foamy white head. Really tasty smelling, hints of hops and sticky pine. Good but not great tasting, the initial taste is a bit watered down and the flavor hits towards the end.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus and pine notes. Flavor is also very hoppy with citrus, pine, earthy notes and some spices. Medium body with medium carbonation. A very bitter, tasty brew.

BVery (8912) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle. Mostly clear / slightly hazy amber pour. Nice fluffy white head that dissipates rather quickly. Pine resin nose with a touch of citrus. Taste is pine, citrus, and some earthy elements. Quite hoppy - and Iíd say a touch unbalanced.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2011
this was a pretty good IPA, although iím not really sure if it is truly a micro or not. Has a nice hop aroma as well as taste and a good bitter finish.

Sample at Nashville beer fest. I think this is my first NE beer, Woo! Sweet orange flavor and a little pine bitter finish. Beautiful orange color and frothy white head. Pine and citrus aroma. Pretty tasty.
