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.

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!

erickok (3165) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 3, 2014
Amber bodied, misty, nice looking. Juicy hops, sweet grapefruit, simple yet decent. Clean yeast, amber malts. Light bitter, bit juicy, simple. I do appreciate the body and cleanliness thatís almost non craft like. Drinks easily, could use some extra flair, sweetness perhaps. (On tap at The Liberty Tavern Austin)

Beerenberger (1265) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2013
The aroma is a hoppy citrus. Pours a dark amber with a mostly diminishing white head and substantial lacing. The taste is sweet up front and hoppy on the finish. NICE! Fruity sweetness initially and citrusy on the tale end. Nice balance. Medium-light body and crisp carbonation. Overall, a very agreeable IPA that I would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mora2000 (5346) - 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.

drfabulous (3646) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Draught at Hopdoddy. Served in a big ass cold goblet for some reason. Slightly hoppy with some citrus to it. Bit of caramel and slight sweet.

WozWx (83) - Lafayette, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Served in a Guinness Imperial Pint glass... Very nice copper color with a shallow, bubbly head. Somewhat of a sweet aroma and sweet initial taste. Then the hops/bitterness sets in. More of a bitter aftertaste than a smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

draft. yeast nose of shallot / onion / garlic and must, which seems odd given the hop bill here, but thatís 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 itís muddled and muted but the undertones of garlic / vegetables tells me I wouldnít enjoy much a cleaner version.
