3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Rockingout. Poured a deep orange color. Head was sparse. Aroma is citrus hoppy with malt in the background. Mouthfeel is thin for me. Perhaps too much of a hop bite for the grain bill. Not unpleasant but not quite there for me.

Bottle shared by Blake. Unfiltered orange body under a big foamy white head. Strong pine resin and grapefruit rind over gentle biscuity malt. Big resinous hops in the flavor - pine, grapefuit, pickled cherry. This is over a nice grahm crackery malting. Silky mouthfeel.

Clear red color with a beige head. Citrus hop aroma is stronger and better than many Ipa’s. Flavor of piney hops and malt. Fairly long hoppy finsih.

Tap at buckeye, just further proof how far this brewery has fallen in recent years.. their kitchen staff has left for Lizardville and other locations, their brewer left and the rest is history.
an orangey type beer, with little to no hop punch, not even clean and tasty just kind of malty and bland. needs more cleaner taste not the lingering malt flavor I get.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
#300 Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops, caramel, and a slight hint of spices. Flavor is pretty much the same with a decent bitter finish. A very well balanced pale ale. Plenty of hops, epecially on the finish, but a nice mixture with the malts. Nice, not my favorite, but definetely good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
aroma is citrusy, hoppy and has a desticnt hint of oranges. Taste is a bit hoppier then I would have thought, with a certain fruity and caramel flavour. Nice smooth finish, chunks of sediment in the glass .....

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Paid $2.79 for a bomber.
Nice deep amber with a huge head.
A bit IPAish in the nose. Sweet citrus, slightly hoppy.
Bittersweet, tinge of an IPA, but far from it. Slightly citrusy, but lacking a lot of hop. Nice, but not overwhelming. Would make a great session brew. But not hearty enough (or original enough) to make me buy it again, other than to drink all night.

Certainly tell this is a Buckeye beer from the aroma. A slightly hazy copper color small head. A musty citrus hop aroma. A spicy hop taste. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very true to style. I'd like to rate it higher, but compared to many beers I've had its not that good, as with most pale ales. Almost amber in color, light citrus aroma and flavor to match. If you like pale ales, I suggest you try this one. Thanks alcfron.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Nice amber color with a light off white head. Light carbonation. Good looking really, except for the over abundance of particles floating around in there. Just a light grain aroma with hints of spice when you give your glass a swirl. Spicy bitterness from the hops and woody grains. Spice, wood and grain. Done. Long and lingering bitter finish. Light and dry. Not my favorite from Buckeye.
