COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Buckets Original American IPA begins with a nice malt bill that lets the brew stand up to the mountain of hops added later. After the boil, the hot wort (the beer before its really beer) is fired through a hop back, a unique four-barrel stainless steel tank filled with a gratuitous amount of raw flower Amarillo, Centennial, and Cascade hops, extracting the aromatic oils and flavor of the hops. Followed with additional dry hopping in the fermenter, the end result is a big, well-balanced West Coast-style IPA with terrific hop flavor and aroma.

355ml bottle (Beertopia, Nebraska) - thanks Frank!
Massively sharp lemony citrus aroma. Some pine needles and spruciness later. Sweet caramelly malts. Lots of pine needles, tons of citrus, and some sherbert in the taste, alas some floor-cleaner aspects to those hops too. Some soapiness in the finish, and more pine. Nice full palate, pleasant carbonation. Fairly solid IPA, but a little soapy and a little sweet.
