COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Bucket’s 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 it’s 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.

Floral woody hop resin surrounding the sides of the glass.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3344) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2013
I picked this up at the Yokohama’s Brewers Cup from the AQ Bevolution stand. 6.3% A nice orange color with a decent head and a floral aroma. Mango and grapefruit, definitely tropical fruitish. The flavor is quite bitter but pleasant with fruit hoppiness first followed by a more piney finish. Pretty nice. It is a really solid IPA, give it a try!
