4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 One of my favorite Nebraskan IPAís. Itís dank, bitter, aromatic, and has an assertive grapefruit flavor. Basically itís a West Coast IPA from a Mid-American brewer. Overall, Iíd say this is a very classy effort. While Lucky Bucket isnít my favorite Nebraska brewer, itís proof that my home state can make a good hoppy ale.

Pours clear yellow gold with lasting white foam. Great aroma of earthy pine and bright citrus a little soapy. Solid flavor, very well put together. Familiar one orange citrus pine with solid grains to back it. Nice fairly clean finish not quite dry with lingering earthy pine kick.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle with Greg, courtesy of the Big Ragu. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and great lacing. Grapefruity, orange peel, bready, lightly grassy, doughy, and caramelly aroma. Taste is much the same - fruity, grapefruity, sweet caramel, bread, a touch of weed, and earthiness with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent IPA but the malt backbone is much too pronounced for my liking.

Draft to pint glass
Tons of aroma here, caramel. grapefruit, and lots of spruce.
Clear amber with a thin white head.
Bitter, but well balanced with a malty and caramel sweetness.

Pretty, good. Very hoppy floral smell. Taste is bitter grapefruit. Good, but with it tasted more like the smell.

pours hazy amber. head fades to a thick lingering film. nose is sticky pine resin, lemon rind, citrus fruits, soapy flowers. Flavor is similar hop character, some bready, toasty, and biscuity malt flavors along with the soapy lemony hops. Ok beer but not the great clean citrus or fruity IPA.

Elegant orange color. Classic grapefruit IPA aroma. Nice sweet and hoppy flavors. Good little IPA from a brewery wisely located on Centennial Road :)

Given past experiences with this brewer, I was expecting this to be complete garbage juice - thankfully, I am pleasantly surprised - it is a bit overly sweet, but the sweetness is clean and does not keep the pine and citrus intensity of the hops from shining here - there is a light gingerbread note that also adds an interesting dimension - decent.
