Borran's Beer Review: Lucky Jack

Hey everyone!
Today, I'm reviewing an American Pale Ale called Lucky Jack from the brewery Lervig. It's their flagship pale ale, one of Lervig's best selling products. Malts in this beer: Pilsner and Caramalt. Hops: Chinook, Amarillo and Citra.
Description of the beer: "An unfiltered & unpasteurised APA from the west coast of Norway. Brewed with Amarillo, Chinook and Citra Hops. Although the hops are the dominating flavour and aroma, the beer is easy drinking due to its light body from the pale malts and caramel malt. It offers a golden colour with 45 IBUs, grapefruit, tropical fruit and floral hoppy flavours & aromas."


- The brewery was founded in 2003 in Stavanger, Norway.
- From 2003 to 2005 the beer was produced by Macks Ølbryggeri in Tromsø.
- In 2010 the brewery hired the American Mike Murphy as their head brewer, and started brewing craft beers.
- Lervig was on RateBeer's list of the Top 100 brewers in the world in 2014.
- They export a third of their beers to the foreign market.


Here's a list of their most well known beers:

Lucky Jack
Tasty Juice
Perler For Svin
Hoppy Joe
Konrad’s Stout
3 Bean Stout
Liquid Sex Robot




Appearance: hazy orange color, with a medium white head.
Smell: citrus, grapefruit, hints of caramel.
Mouthfeel: medium body, medium carbonation.
Taste: tropical fruits, some caramel, quite dry with a hoppy finish.

Verdict: Very easy to drink, perfect beer on a hot summer day. It's a very well-balanced beer, great combination of malts and hops. Actually, it reminds me a little bit of Punk IPA from the brewery Brewdog.
I like the artwork on the can, suits well for a beer coming from Norway. Overall, I think it's a solid beer, but nothing special. I will give it a rating 3.25 out of 5.

Hi @borran,

that looks tasty and here is a !BEER for you

Great review!

It is neat to see American ipas popular not just in North America though they make the distinction here whether they are west coast, New England, or other styles of apa.

Anything that tastes like Punk IPA is damn good with me and quite an endorsement.
