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.

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.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pint on tap. Clear copper beer, darker than i expected, with a stable off-white head and good adhesion. Light aroma, kind of grassy/herbal, not too much citrus, lots of grapefruit, bitter, long aftertaste. Middle-of the road as far as IPAs go.

ttoadee (707) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Light gold pour, small off-white head. Nose is grapefruit. Middle is medium roasted malt sweetness. Finish is pleasant medium hop bitterness that hangs around awhile. Went great with Salvadoran sampler of chicken tamales, pupusas, fried yuca, fried plantain and gallo pinto. Yum.

stxoil (25) - Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at hopdoddy’s. Pour is dark amber, almost brown with big fluffy tan head. Aroma is hoppy and so is taste, but not overly so and maltiness is evident. Smooth and drinkable without a long, bitter aftertaste. Not your typical IPA, more reminiscent of other pale-ale varieties. But a very enjoyable beer.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2014
On tap at a bar in Austin. Aroma is pine and heavy malt. Pours amber with a big frothy head. Taste is grapefruit zest, pine and a huge malt finish. Medium thick mouthfeel with not too much bitterness. Approachable and mildy hoppy. Meh?
