COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (3180) - Swarthmore, 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

22oz bottle into my De Struise glass. Lots of nice carbonation here, a dark tope head that rises several fingers, great retention and lacing. The head is very spongey, almost one big glob that moves and sticks together. Lacing looks like frosted icicles on a window...The aroma is blah almost dead, light musky grass and a dull malty caramel, so boring...Taste is a lot of alcohol, plain boring, light chalk on the finish a little pine resin.

bomber. Murky amber w/ enough floral nose & citrus to keep it interesting. An odd something lingers under the surface.

hypn0toad (267) - Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 Tastes just like and rates just like an ipa. I detect a hint of hops. Looks like an ipa too. Blah blah bitter blah blah good aftertaste. The ohio flag is classy in the bottle despite the donkey kong hippie barrel in the middle. I don’t quite understand what exactly makes this hippie beer? Maybe it is made with hippies. Cleveland represent.

DialSquare (2316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Bomber from Josephs in Toledo. Orange pour with large fluffy off-white head. Citrus hop and caramel aroma. Caramel malts balanced well with the hop bitterness in the taste. Good clean bitter and toast in the finish. Nice.

750 mL bottle. Highly carbonated. Really foams up on me leaving, after a long wait of settling, a sticky, beige head with a golden-amber body. Sweet, floral, and some tropical notes. Not dry. Fading finish, but what lasts is a hop note and a hint of bitterness. Nice flavor.
