On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate line, citrus, and caramel. Itís a transparent amber with a one finger off-white head that has good retention. Thereís 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. Itís light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall...too much caramel for my IPA preferences.

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.

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.

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?)

Tap. Deep golden with small head. Dull hop thud with a bit of citrus and pine. Pretty bitter. Not a fan of these hops.

jsquire (3866) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2013
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.

malrubius (2241) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 23, 2013
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 Itís excellent.

Basic IPA. I could drink this if no better hoppy beer around. Above average carbonation. Some hop aroma. OK, but not greatly drinkable.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing lings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, peach, honey, caramel, floral, grass, pine, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, pine, floral, grass, caramel, honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of citrus and pine hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA! All around good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
