India Pale Ale is about balance. The right balance of malt, hop flavor, bitterness, and aroma to create an unforgettable ale. Lucky Bucket's 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 it's 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. Lucky Bucket IPA weighs in at 65 IBUs and 6.3% ABV.

12oz bottle in a tall pint glass.

A- Pours a copper-orange color with a 1-finger white head. The head's quick fade leaves decent lacing. It's hazy with visible carb bubbles and some other floaters.

S- Malty pale ale-like aroma with some pine. The hops make their way. Pretty crisp and fresh.

T- Malt and citrus hops. Some earthy pine.

M- Fresh and smooth. Good malt body, not too sweet . Lasting hop finish.

O- Pretty good drinking IPA that shows it's malts.
