6 pack from BBM. This is a good looking beer: deep orange with a perfectly formed white head. Hops are quite obvious in the aroma, but not necessarily intense. Itís floral with grapefruit and some evergreen as well. The hoppiness is more pronounced in the flavor. Lucky Bucket has made a really nice, dry and hoppy brew. This is quite resinous with pleasing piney notes all over.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to snifter. Hazy amber pour leaving a soapy white head that fades and shows minimal lacing. Aroma is pine hops that are somewhat pungent and a soft malt scent, but mainly hops. Taste is bitter pine and a little oily and a malty dirty finish with the hops lingering. Palate is medium and gritty with a chaulky finish. Thereís something good going on here, but I canít put my finger on it.
