To be honest a little disapointed after sampling Lucky Bastard yesterday. Tried two bombers, first one cap was stained with oily coating, pretty sure cap was compromised so I tried a second just to be sure. It was clean as a whistle, clarity of beer much improved as well which just means there are bad bottles out there.

Anyways, nice medium pour down the middle, moderate to good retention with some lacing. Color a harvest yellow slightly pale & incandescent. Hops firm assertive grapefruit, amarrilo maybe? with some lingering hop flavor from dry hopping. A in your face tour de force of hops but to me a little one dimensional although a good one at that. enjoyed but prefer to be Lucky rather than just good.

Mouth-numbingly hoppy and at times almost to powerful, almost. Certainly one of those beers you must taste in your beer drinking lifetime. Must be the last beer of the day, anything else will not taste the way it should after this brew. This is at the pinnacle of hoppiness!

Much maltier than expected. Bitterness and sweetness battle to achieve dominance. Not in a balanced way. Not crazy about this sweet, bitter IPA. A little sweet for my tastes, despite the bitterness. It's not my cup of tea, altogether. Too sweet and simultaneously too bitter... Not balanced for my preference....
