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.

Pours a cloudy, orangeish-yellow with minimal head. Very strong hop aroma. Flavor is a nice, smooth combination of piney-hop bitterness with citrus notes and a sweet finish. This is really a very good IPA--surprised I havenít heard of it before.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Radek. Deep amber beer with a thin head. The aroma has a little bit of soft fruit and an odd peanutty flavour. Fairly odd really. A bit of citrus and some light pithy bitterness. A little bit of light malt sweetness a touch of crystal malt/iced tea. Meh - itís okay.

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.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Pours a delicious amber color. Taste is striking lemon and a hint of bitter fruit. Yum. Reminds me of my favorite beer of all time.bells two hearted. Though no where near its perfection. A top 15 ipa for sure in my book!! Well.done Lucky Bucket!!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of piney hops and citrus. Taste is piney hops, floral hops, citrus, and some malt. Good balance. Nice.
