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.

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 thats 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 its muddled and muted but the undertones of garlic / vegetables tells me I wouldnt enjoy much a cleaner version.

mmmbeer (1408) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Pint glass at Alamo Lake Creek- served a slightly turbid copper/amber color. 4mm white head formed and laced very nicely upon the vessel, aroma of hops by the wheelbarrow load, malt, and heart. Hits the mouth with a wide medium body, malt is tasty (!) and laced lightly with caramel, middle has the typical hop wave- even and very good size, finish is cloying and extremely acidic. The notes read,"Ya cant do this at BAIT AND SWITCH FLIX!". Indeed.

On tap at the Phoenix Saloon. The look is clear, amber colored, and an ok cream colored head. The taste is hoppy, grass, pine, good, and caramel. The smell is the same.

Pretty typical color and head. A hodgepodge of hops. Some grainyness, notes of caramel. More on the stringent side of the hops, not super smooth. Light carbonation. Finish is bitter and long lasting.

Draught at Opal Divines Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a deep, bubbly orange with a small fizzy off-white head. Aroma of resiny and catty hops, grain and some fruit. Flavour of grain, caramel malt, resiny hops and a slightly harsh bitter finish. Average bodied. Meh, just alright.

On tap at thirsty planet tap room. Nicely hopped with the effect of floral and ester notes more than bittering. Drinkable, sessionable, but not that memorable. They should stop filtering their beer. Flavor is lost
