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.

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.

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.

nmcnair (15) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
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 (651) - 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.

commonmac (666) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2015
Tap in a pint glass at Saxon Pub while listening to Denny Freeman with commonshawn. Light copper with minimal head. Aroma is all hops and taste follows suit. Cloying mouthfeel that grabs ahold and doesn’t let go. Feels like they just went all in on the hop IPA without a ton of balance. Citrus rind and grapefruit are present. Some sugar sweetness is there at the end. Kind of a standard drop in the bucket IPA but it’s not terrible.

jgentgesdo (682) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Clear amber with small but nicely lacing white head. Nose is diminished floral hops notes and soap. Bitter punch, rather watery mouthfeel for how high gravity it is. Sweet in the middle. Peanuts? I do like the long, bitter finish. Overall meh

Deep orange small off-white head. Lightly floral, empty aroma. Flavor of caramel malt, grass, floral and citrus hops. Medium body with ssharp finish. Okay.

onceblind (5410) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Clear dark Amber golden with a foamy light beige head. Wonderful aroma of leafy hop resins and a little earthy caramel bitterness. Bitter flavor that’s earthy and leafy with a lot of pine resin and citrus rind.

Draft at the source. Clear deep golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, light pineapple. Taste is fruity and juicy. Tasty and refreshing.
