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.

On tap. Dark gold pour w/ a tan head. Aroma is hops and citrus, with some caramel. Nice bitter, not as aggressive as the description might suggest, and a little sweetness. Flavors of grapefruit, citrus, just a little pine and caramel. Nice finish. A very drinkable IPA.

Wow! This IPA hits the ground running with a great nose. Hops are not an issue here. Great brew from start to finish with a crisp ending with a good copper color and nice amber head. Would have this anytime!

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!

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

Draft at Chicago House, Austin TX. Another solid Austin IPA. Clear orange copper with a thin tan head. Aroma of citrus and flowers. Taste is well balanced, some sweet malt with a flowery hoppy finish.

Pretty typical color and head. A hodgepodge of hops. Some grainyness, notes of caramel. More on the stringent side of the hops, not super smooth. Light carbonation. Finish is bitter and long lasting.
