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.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2007
Bottle... Hazy orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Tropical and citrus fruit nose with lots of floral, perfumey, Mandarin orange notes. The flavor is also perfumey... and violently bitter. Train wreck of hops. Medium-bodied and astringent as hell with lively carbonation. Lengthy, tannic, harshly bitter finish. boboski was responsible for this one... lol... thanks dude!
