Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States
breckbrew.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Malts: Two Row Pale, Munich, Carmel, Torrified Wheat malts.

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.

From the older can, it pours a slightly hazy amber with a modest head. Some lacing. Hops in the nose, hops in the mouth. Respectable flavor overall. Some bitterness and a very slight aftertaste.

Once again another past dated deal from my local liquor store. Got this for dirt cheap, but it was still really flavorful.......lots of good hops flavors in there.
