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.

Yowza! Thanks to alcfron to sending this to me since I have been too lazy to drive the 2 hours to Buckeye Brewing. This 22oz beast pours a nice clear copper color with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Mild effervescence it notable, it makes the beer much more pleasing to the eye. Strong hops aroma will make you blink. Appropriately biting hops flavor makes me look forward to trying the ’76. Just a pinch of toasted malt and caramel keep the hops from being overwhelming. Nice dry finish. This is a good IPA.
