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.

Nice in-your-face beer. Leaves a great bitterness. If you are worried about bitterness beer face, don’t drink it.

theisti (3905) - Kansas, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Full pint draft at Craft Pride in Austin, Texas. The pour is a clear copper golden with a smaller white head. The aroma is faint, some sweet floral and general bitterness. The taste picks up some with resin floral hop along with noticeable alcohol. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and a floral sweet finish. Decent, but a bit flabby as it warms.

lownote (530) - Austin, Alabama, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Puts brown with a slightly off white head into pint. Aroma is very hoppy. Piny like. Taste is a good malt hop balance. bit of a bitter after taste. The hops are not my favorite, and seem more bitter than flavorful. The malts are a bit toasty. Thin ish body. Bubbly.

Pours a copper colour with a small head. Aroma of resiny hops, grain and some fruit. Tastes of grain, caramel malt, resiny hops and a slightly harsh bitter finish. Medium body.

commonshawn (1064) - Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2015
Tap at saxon pub in Austin with commonmac. Pint glass. Copper with very little head. Small nose, probably because of the lack of head. Small amount of Malt sweetness and grain up front, then strong resin hops. Not super crisp. Finish stays with you.
