Lucky Labrador Moonlight Ale 2.8
Keg at LL Hawthorne, 26/05/13. Clear blonde with a thin white covering. Nose is pale malt, cereals, touch of cirrus grassy, rather thin. Taste comprises more pale malt, grassy vibes, cereals crackers, grain, light lemon drizzle. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so.

Lucky Labrador Super Dog 4
Orange-amber pour, huge head that lasts quite a while. Pine and citrus in the nose. The taste follows through, with citrus (bitter grapefruit, mostly) and pine easily identifiable, on top of a caramel-sweet backbone. Bitter-sweet finish, somewhat dry (which is a plus from me). Not a super complex beer, but I don’t think it should be.

Lucky Labrador Super Dog 3.1
Tap at Luc Lac in Portland. Skinny bowling pin glass. Deep coppery color with off white head and nice lacing. Aroma has bitter citrus characteristics with a piney hop presence. Taste follows suit leaning on a bitter citrus rind and hops. Almost overly bitter with minimal sweetness. Missing the rounded mouthfeel of other IPAs. Not one of my favorites but the location was awesome.
