Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

IPA pours a dark golden color, with a nice lacing head. There is a unique sweet floral aroma, with a sweet malty backbone. There is a nice malty start, and then a up brunt hoppy taste. Good full flavor, but not dry, and the blending doesn't happen as well. Overall its a unique IPA, didn't find it the best but still enjoyable.
