Pretty good, nice hop taste it is thick, heavy and intense. However it has a little bit of a thin backbone. That is what is keeping it from being an amazing IPA. I had Dale's early and although the hops aren't as intense compared to this one, Dale's is more balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on December 31, 2012. Hazy medium amber color, balanced citrus/hop/pine/malt aroma, somewhat watery initial mouthfeel followed by a burst of hops leading to a bittersweet finish--this beer would be better if the taste were as balanced as the aroma. Still, while this isnít the best IPA around, it isnít too shabby either.

Had this after a pint of Daleís Pale and I have to say that this IPA stood way above the Daleís beer in flavor and aroma ( I realize that I am comparing an APA with an IPA, so sue me), but I liked the freshness and flavor of Lucky Bucket way better...thanks.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery, poured into a pint glass at home. Orange and clear appearance with a fluffy, lasting white head. Fresh hoppy aroma of pine, grass, citrus/tropical fruits, floral notes and light herbs. Similar flavor, medium hop bitterness, zesty and lightly spicy with light toasty malts. Medium body, crisp and dry with a lingering finish. Pretty solid IPA.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
My favorite Nebraskan IPA. Itís dank, bitter, aromatic, and has a flavor that reminds me of grapefruit. Basically itís a West Coast IPA from a Mid-American brewer. Overall, Iíd say this is a well executed effort. While this may not be my favorite Nebraska brewer, itís an excellent example of the style from my home state.
