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.

portableparty (1942) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2011
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.

Finhead (1200) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2011
A copper pour with an off-white head. The aroma contains pine and grassy hops. The medium body has an oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste move from bittersweet to bitter, yet flavor and transition is very smooth.

DSG (6242) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Hazy golden with a big frothy white head. Great aroma of citric, floral and slightly piney hops. Flavor is hoppy and grapefruity with some sweetish crisp malt in the background. Lingering citric bitter finish. Medium-bodied. A very good IPA.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2011
This pours cloudy amber with a tall, sticky off-white head. Pine and citrus are melded with a juicy malt base in the aroma. The flavor is bitter with plenty of hops, yet the sweetness is there in the back all along. A welcome new comer to my area.

Amber hued cloudy straw body. Fresh citrus nose with lots of clean grass. Bready malt backbone with light toasted sweetness. Strong, floral hops with uniquely tart and sweet citrus character. Not much bitterness. Really nice drink.

Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Large citrus, bread, and caramel malt aroma. Bready, citrus, with a flat medium bitter finish. Medium bodied and fizzy but a nice beer.

MrBunn (2470) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle as a rare find in TN for a new state! Pours a deep amber/almost copper. A few bubbles float around on the surface, little carbonation. Aromas are English IPA-like... lots of caramel malt, herbal hops, a little resin and spice. Flavor is similar... I like the West Coast-style IPA description, but this is more of a hybrid between West Coast and England. Flavor is OK... but again, itís more herbal and spicy hops instead of citrus and resin. Itís good, but not quite as advertised.

Hazy amber orange, foamy beige head. Aroma is floral, orange, nut, toasty malt, grass, vine, fruit. Taste is nice and tropical, pine, orange peel. More flavor than I was expecting overall.
