COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bucket Head IPA is an aggressively hopped India Pale Ale. We believe that you should go big or go home. Therefore, we add Cascade, Centennial and Mt. Hood hops buckets at a time to make the biggest of our beers. This copper colored beer will start with a hint of sweetness, immediately followed with a punch in the mouth of bitterness.

djd07 (3699) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a clear amber with a thick creamy off white head. The aroma is floral hops and grapefruit with citrus. Medium mouthfeel with strong hop bite upfront and a nice lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink, a goo IPA from Thirsty Planet.

Cavie (3800) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2011
On tap at Black Sheep Lodge. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. Tried to work up a little more but it was being difficult. Aroma is right off fresh hops. Lots of citrus and piney notes in this. Fresh and sappy. Flavor is fresh hops with spicy citrus and pine. Tree sap leads to bitter notes and a very dry hoppy finish. Also has some sweet notes in it towards the end, especially as it warms a bit. Candied floral hops perhaps? Not bad for such a young brewery.

bisonkron (5) - Alabama, USA - JAN 18, 2011 does not count
Appearance- simi dark, similar to other IPAs. Poured with very little head. Smell- was similar to other IPAs such as 90minute IPA but the smell was not as strong(my sense of smell is not very acute anyway). Taste- I enjoyed the taste, it was smooth for an ipa ( they have a silver back ipa that really misses, but not this variety ) the after taste was not pleasant tho, its the only part i could complain about. Mouthfeel- perhaps a little weaker(more watery) compared to the average IPA out there. I enjoy a good IPA and this one did not let me down. I’m not sure i will order it again at a restaurant when there are other selections, but I am very glad I gave it a try. Serving type: on-tap

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Pour is very hazed orangey amber....thin dense and super sticky tan head...this beer just looks chewy and viscous...lots of small bubbles travelling at what looks like have the speed...smell is super hoppy....resinous, pine, hints of grapefruit...wow...strong sweetness up front and steady throughout and through the finish...then all of the hops come out...almost like a suicide of hop teas...lots of resin and pine flavors....hints of citrus come out with the sweetness...nice lingering finish...what a wonderful surprise!
