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.

This is my beer of choice for every day drinking. I love my Sierra Nevada Pale ale ect for every day drinkers ... But, this is a great IPA! It has knocked all others back! Cheers!

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.

Wow...nice beer. Aromatic hops, off white head and heavy lacing. The mouthfeel is soft and bitter and a little sticky. I enjoy.

Very different but good. Orange gold with white head. Nose of malty citrus. Tastes of sweet grapefruit grass and malt. Sweet and bitter balance s well.

Hazy orange copper with a small broken head. The aroma is great. Strong mix of orange, citrus, dank, floral notes, light pine and caramel. The flavor is lightly toasted caramel that fades into a slew of juicy American hops and extreme bitterness. A little bit of weird balance in the aftertaste. Pretty Fín hoppy, better than expected.

Delicious IPA, a cause for rejoicing. Amber color. Beautiful hoppy aroma, excellent malt balance to back the hops, flavor includes distinctive Amarillo hops plus both floral and grassy hops. A beer Nebraskans can drink with pride and worth a roadtrip down I-80 for the rest of the world

Very dark maroon color, probably the darkest IPA Iíve seen. The aroma is very fruity, not just citrus fruity, but berries. Flavor is the same, very sharp citrus/grapefruit bitterness with a very refreshing sour cherry and strawberry flavor. Palate is very long lasting ending with a great hop warmth. I miss this and wish i was drinking it right now. On tap at 12 South Taproom in Nashville, TN
