3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate line, citrus, and caramel. It’s a transparent amber with a one finger off-white head that has good retention. There’s some a some thick soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus. There is a pretty good carmaker backbone. The finish had moderate pine, lighter grapefruit and a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall...too much caramel for my IPA preferences.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Progressive Field. Translucent orange-brown. The hops are a combination of pineapple and grapefruit. There is some flavour from the malts as well. Solid, but not great in any way.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium to darker amber color with a 1 inch loose head. Aroma is some pine and a little earthiness, very subdued. Flavor is not very hoppy at all. There is some pine and bitterness, malt mostly dominates. Should be called a straight up ale. Not a very good IPA. What happened to the hop bombs that buckeye used to brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. I brought this back from Cleveland this summer and it might have been degraded from having spent 2 days warm in the trunk of my car. Pours a clear amber with a thick off-white head. Not much of a aroma of floral hops, malt and grass. Spicy hop and malt flavor with a grassy and earthy hop finish. Did not notice much citrus or pine.

Mediocre, but drinkable. Loved the bottle. Malt dominated through and through, similar to the hippie, but a bit less hoppy than that one. Thanks for the trade Ron! (tech notes - lots of caramel malt?)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep golden color out of the bottle with a fluffy egg shelled colored head. Nose of dusty grains and orange citrus hops. Smooth mouthfeel with lots of grapefruit rind and bitter orange over caramel sweet malts. Long pinching grapefruit zest finish. Nice, bitter IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Red WIne and Brew. Bright copper with lasting head and lace. Grainy pine and grapefruit aroma. Nice toasted grain and mild fruit sweetness with assertive grassy grapefruit rind bitterness and some lingering toasty grain. Nicely attenuated and lively carbo. Not sure why someone told me this was not very good. I think It’s excellent.
