COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Jack is just about the perfect beer for summer. Grapefruit, tropical fruits and citrus flavours from the Citra and Amarillo hops are apparent in the aroma and taste. But we decided to go one step further and actually make it the perfect summer beer. Beginning this spring (2016), were adding grapefruit juice to some of our Lucky Jack tanks. Now you can have all the flavour of Lucky Jack with a twist: a perfect medley of citrus from the addition of grapefruit juice. Its beautifully refershing on a hot summer day on the deck or at the beach.

Malts: Pilsner and Caramel.
Hops. Perle, Citra, Amarillo, Chinook.

Aroma: grapfruit and citrus.

Food pairings: BBQ chicken and ribs, tortillas and guachamole, fresh fruit salad.Inspirert av iddisen Senior, Stavanger Norway.

Bottle, The Hop Beer Shop, Chelmsford, 12th June 2015 Nice white lacing. Golden appearance. Aroma is old socks, fruity yeast esters. I think it has a yeast issue. Unfortunately no batch reference. Taste is mangos, grapefruit, some tutti-fruity and slight lime. Bitterness Is good.

venom666 (994) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - JUL 18, 2015
Slightly hazy golden color with good white head. Really hoppy aroma, really fresh hops, with grapefruit and sweet citrus fruits. Extremely great drinkability, really sessionable with lively carbonation. Taste follows the aroma, grapefruit, mango, bubblegum, piney and citrusy, with a medium longing bitterness. Really nice.

ineedbeer (2121) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Poured from a can with a best by date of 04/14/2016. Aroma is fairly malty with toasted bread, cracker, biscuit and lighter caramel. Moderate hop notes of pine resin, grapefruit, wood and floral. Smell quite a bit like Sierra Nevada Pale. Pours a hazy, copper color with a medium sized, thick white head that recedes quickly to a thin film that lingers. Moderate lacing and small legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with toasted bread and cracker. Faint caramel. Moderate bitterness with moderate hop notes. Hops are classic grapefruit and pine with a touch of wood. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty decent pale ale and very "classic American." Easy drinking with balanced bitterness, malt and hop profiles. That being said, America seems to have moved towards fruitier hopped pale ales with a lot of hop aroma and flavor and less malt.

Amarillo pajizo un poco oscuro, espuma blanca escasa pero persistente. Aroma herbal y a pan, muy comedido y acertado. Trago largo, satisfactorio, marcadamente amargo y ligeramente seco, muy refrescante. Retrogusto inmediato del lpulo y de nuevo notas de cereal. La definicin de "sabroso y bebible"!!
