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.

On tap at hopdoddys. 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.

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?

erickok (5931) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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 thats almost non craft like. Drinks easily, could use some extra flair, sweetness perhaps. (On tap at The Liberty Tavern Austin)

Beerenberger (1605) - 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 (6158) - 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.
