Breckenridge - Lucky U IPA

Breckenridge Brewery’s Lucky U (6.2% ABV and 68 IBU) is an American IPA that pours orange gold with a two-finger head and has a nice floral / citrus aroma.  Lucky U is an easy drinking IPA and has a nice hop bitterness.  There are 7 different hop varieties used in the brewing process and I am thinking they probably dry hop some too for added aroma.  Lucky U is available in cans and bottles.  The website description of Lucky U is, “We like to think this is an ale for everyone who believes you make your own luck. We sure did. And the result is a well-balanced, soulful IPA with just the right amount of hoppiness. An even keeled ale that goes down clean and refreshing, but still lets you know it’s been doted on by the Brewmaster. It's true to it’s IPA heritage, but also highly drinkable. Lucky U. And we seriously mean that.”  Breckenridge brews some tasty beers and I like Lucky U and the Vanilla Porter.
