A bit malt heavy for your typical IPA. Packs a small punch with the ABV %. Good solid beer.

Not a fan. Little taste compared to others of the same price range. Smooth mouthfeel, but that's it's only redeeming quality.

Pours a hazy pale/medium amber producing 2 fingers of frothy, beige, somewhat lasting head that leaves clumpy rings & sheets of lace. Aroma has malt tones of caramel & a burnt toastiness, wrapped in heady pine & light citrus hops & not much else. Taste is bitter caramel, pine, floral & orange & by mid-sip the same burnt toast notes of the nose. Peppery throughout. Finishes bittersweet developing into a pine resin, bitter hop bite & slightly burnt aftertaste. Not much malt sweetness at all. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy but very prickly with an astringent aftertaste.

Appearance: light amber, golden color. Little to no head
Smell: Sweet, light fruity with a slight peppery hit to the back of my throat
Taste: A lighter IPA. Not as fruity as I would have expected and I enjoy that.
Feel: Light almost flat little to no carbonation..
Overall: Pretty good beer taste much lighter then the 6.2% label I would never expected it to be that strong

Better than I was expecting after seeing previous reviews. Pleasantly surprised. I can't go in depth, but this is an upper tier IPA. Great flavor.

Lucky U IPA pours lightly copper tinted gold with a light chill haze under a 2’ bone white fluffy foam cap. It has a bready malt nose with just a hint of citrusy hops. Bready malt leads the palate through citrus flavors to a big bitter grapefruit rind dry finish. The texture is creamy created by fine soft carbonation and a medium body for drinkability.
