4.06/5  rDev +18.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle served in standard pint glass

A - orange-tinted amber; hazy; scant but lasting off-white head

M - medium body; nicely carbonated.

S - citrusy hops with orange tones and hint of malt

T - excellent flavor, with pronounced citrus tone, but Lucky U has low intensity hops and bitterness as well as sweeter than a typical Amer. IPA. This may disappoint those expecting a more typical or hoppy IPA but probably makes this more drinkable for many. Hop heads might want to think of this as a bold and distinctive pale ale.

Excellent. One of those beers that makes me wonder why appearance plays much of a role in the ratings.

2.56/5  rDev -25.4%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured very cloudy with sediment. No bottling date on bottle but perhaps it didn't age in the bottle very well. Fruity in the nose and too mild for what we've come to expect in an American IPA. Very bready. I would love to try it on draught and compare the appearance and the nose.
