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.

3fourths (7978) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2013
draft. yeast nose of shallot / onion / garlic and must, which seems odd given the hop bill here, but that’s how it is. perfumed / musty citrus pith and spiced sweet vegetable hop aroma with large dose of yeast. high bitterness, medium acidity, low carbonation, mostly smooth texture other than the spicy hop acid. my overall opinion is that it’s muddled and muted but the undertones of garlic / vegetables tells me I wouldn’t enjoy much a cleaner version.

Draught at Opal Divine’s Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a deep, bubbly orange with a small fizzy off-white head. Aroma of resiny and catty hops, grain and some fruit. Flavour of grain, caramel malt, resiny hops and a slightly harsh bitter finish. Average bodied. Meh, just alright.

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2013
On tap at the Whip In. Copper pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are both very nice. I get a ton of pine and orange notes in both, as well as some lighter biscuit malt. The malt provides a bit of sweetness, but the bitterness level is about medium. Soft mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice IPA.

Cavie (3786) - 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.
