Lucky U IPA

Tonight (which was a month ago, tonight) I'm drinking Lucky U IPA brewed by Breckenridge Brewery in Denver, Colorado. This beer is "A Hoppy Homage To A Denver Landmark, The Tivoli Brewery". "DRINK UP FORTUITOUS ONE!"

For me, the Lucky U name made me think of these jeans that I bought in college. The fly actually had those words printed on it. Unfortunately, I never got to use that line, though not for a lack of trying!

Well, the beer color is identical to the label color, so hopefully you have your computers (or phones, jeez) adjusted appropriately. Mostly tropical fruity aroma with a hint of spice behind it. Wow, the flavors are not very powerful at all! A little lemon and orange citrus plus a little black pepper spice. And that, folks, is just about it. Balanced yet watery and fairly bland. Light body, medium carbonation, refreshing. Bitter left on the palate at the end. Hmmm. Big Bro 471 kicked this little brother's ass all around town! Pass on this one as there are plenty of other alternatives.

Yeah this one does simply pale in comparison to 471

It pales in comparison to Deer Park bottled water, too. I thought it was shit.

Yeah, pretty lame and bland.

Joel. Cracking up at your review, again. Not sure I got the main aroma you did though. :)
