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.

Hazy orange pour. Initial notes of citrus. You can tell this has a nice blend of hops, and the finish is rather smooth for an IPA.

Cwrw42 (44) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Pleasant well balanced IPA. Nice copper colour, but no appreciable head. Good hop flavor but bottle was served so cold that the malt profile was lost. Definitely a keeper.

jbruner (3849) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Thanks to trade with huskertan! Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with minimal white head that leaves moderate lace, filtered. Aroma of big resinous citrus and floral hops with good caramel malt back end. Taste follows, good balance, nice hop presence, bittersweet finish. Quick finish, clean and easy, moderate carbonation, solid, but nothing special.
