Lucky U IPA

Courtesy of Louis Glunz Beer Inc.

The wheel, sliced bread and Sampler 12-packs:  The three greatest inventions of mankind.  Take the Breckenridge Brewery 12-pack for example.  Oatmeal Stout, Vanilla Porter, Avalanche Amber and Lucky U IPA, each one better than the last.  Lucky U IPA pours a pure shade of orange with a big, fluffy head, generous creamy lacing and a picturesque showing of carbonation.  The bouquet is well-balanced for an IPA, with floral hops up front and a nice malty backbone to support it.  Neither is overpowering, both are complimentary of the other, full and pleasant to the palate.  The sweetness of the malt tempers the assertiveness of the hops, which are well-represented yet not astringent as some IPAs can be.  The dry finish is refreshing, and does entice one to consider one or two more Lucky U IPAs after the first is finished.  A really nice IPA!
