This soulful American India Pale Ale is the color of spun gold and goes down clean and refreshing. Seven hop varieties and five malts work flawlessly together to provide balance from start to finish. The deliberately chosen hop selection creates a cascading hop flavor experience. Its steadfast hoppiness is fortified by an underlying malt character. Lucky U stands proudly on its own, but it also makes an excellent accompaniment to spicy foods and salty snacks.

Hops: Amarillo, Magnum, Perle, Cascade, Apollo, Fuggle, Golding
Malts: Two Row Pale, Munich, Carmel, Torrified Wheat malts.

Mildly hazed light bronze appearance with a small. off white head and good lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops. Floral, herbal hops dominate the taste with a modest undercurrent of grainy malts. Flavors are clean and crisp, with a medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Dry, bitter, lingering finish.

Murky orange/red rust color.

Huge off-white head; frothy lace.

Bread-y malts in the nose; no hops to speak of.

Thin mouthfeel.

Watery caramel malt flavor. This isn't disgusting bit is not worth drinking.

L: Pours a slightly clouded copper gold color with a large rocky white head that slowly dissipates and leaves about an inch of creamy white head on top, with sheets of lacing all around the glass.

S: Dank, weedy and piney hops, almost no fruit, slight notes of caramel and lighter malt underneath.

T: Dank, weedy and piney, very little fruit, some floral hops, a slight bit of caramel malt in the background. Medium to strong piney bitterness that lingers on the palate for a long while.

F: Medium body and carbonation.

O: This is a pretty average IPA and feels quite old school these days, very little fruit and lots of bitterness and piney and weediness. Not bad but nothing really stands out about it.
