The Hippie I.P.A. continues to be the Buckeye Brewing Company’s best selling beer. First brewed in the summer of ’98, the “Hippie” has become a Cleveland classic among hop lovers. Reminiscent of ales brewed on the Pacific west coast, the Hippie I.P.A. is big, rich in malt and chock full of hops. American malts are used in the grain bill, including pale ale, crystal, dextrin malt and torrified wheat. It is hopped five times with a combination of Northern Brewer and Cascade. After fermentation, hops are added “dry” to impart bold hop aroma. The Hippie starts at 1.068 and is 80 IBU’s.

Bomber from Vintage Estates brought back by ck1, thanks bro! Pours golden orange - very clear - with some below surface bubbles and an off-white head. Aroma brings fresh citrus fruits, pine, resin and a nice grassiness. Taste has sweet fruit, bittersweet citrus, some caramel malt. Finishes with some length and some sweetness, then very bitter at the end. Nice, solid hoppy ipa.

JStax (4103) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Appearance is a translucent copper with a thick head of loosely packed foam roughly the color of an orange tinged white. Slight lacing as the foam dissolves. Aroma is a resinous grapefruit with a slight bready background. Taste is a strong bitter and resinous taste with a rough leather note and a slight alcohol presence at the very beginning. Mouthfeel is juicy, yet sticky with a nice citrus sting.

Light amber, big off white rocky head, 3 fingers, laces nicely... caramel malt, sweet more malt than hop... piney, lighter malt than expected, good flavor, less sweet than the aroma dictates... easy drinking for an ipa,

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2011
22oz bottle. Clear orange color, webby lacing on surface, spotty lacing on glass. Carbonation is a bit sharp, and the finish is kind of mild. Good bitterness. Spicy, acidic note. When the bottle was still cold it had a hint of metal. The hops have come out, and it is much better aromatically when warmed a bit. I think the $4 price was right.

TheEpeeist (3604) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2011
22 oz bottle. Clear rusty orange with a thin ivory head. Nose is caramel, pine and citrus. Medium body with a crisp tingle. After a few sips becomes quite resiny and a bit ponderous. Taste is juniper and quinine that mellow into orange marmalade. Delivers the hops but not so refined.

Nice dark amber IPA. Great color little aroma or head. Subtle hops taste but good. Toasted malts overpowering. Aftertaste is both choppy and malted. Very nicely balanced IPA
