COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I never met a Sasquatch I didn't like. This delicious beer starts with a distinct citrus aroma followed by a complex flavor from European Munich and Biscuit specialty malts. Finally, it ends with the trademark Buckeye finish- hops, hops, and more hops. The Columbus variety is used to balance the brew, and later Sasquatch and I personally dry-hop it with Cascade.

Bottle: Pours a nice amber color with a nice white head on it. Aroma is very subtle, but has notes of citrus, and maybe just a hint of pine. Taste has a nice soft citrus and pine feel to it, with just a touch of caramel. There is also a slight bite at the end of each sip which makes this beer very enjoyable.

Love the appearance, deep brown with red hues and tons of yeast floating around. Grassy citrusy hops aroma and oh what could have been, the flavor is a nice blend of floral hops slightly bready, and malt but the palate is thin and seriously detracts from this good beer.

uvajed (174) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Fabulous red-amber color with a smallish, frothy head. Nice nutty flavor with a hoppy, earthy finish. Not the hop extravaganza that I expected after the reading previous reviews, but quite tasty. Would go well with a juicey cheeseburger, though I think I could drink this any time. Definitely worth a try or three.

deprogram (115) - Renton, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2003 2 liter growler Have been drinking this rather continuously during the last month - Buckeye has a $6 growler special for May - and I'm not tired of it yet. One of Buckeye's best, not as bitter as most IPAs, but with plenty of complexity, a malty complexion and of course an excellent citrus hop aroma.

Hazy. Nice amber/copper color with a light cream colored head. Furity and hoppy nose with some distinct citrus notes. The mouthfeel is zesty. The flavor expresses a lighlty caramel malt with a high level of citrusy hop character and a decent amount of bitterness. The finish is clean, dry, and lasting. A very nice beer.

On tap @ buckeye. Aroma is apple & pear, reminds me of an air freshener. Finished dry with earthy hops.

Bottled: Pour resulted in a large creamy white head of foam that fell after 5 minutes to a thin long lasting layer. Beautifully clear med-dark gold color with burnished highlights. An enticing citrusy-floral hop nose took center stage while the malt aroma pretty much played a bit part. Flavor started with a fine balance of hop bitterness/sweet malt characters and lasted through to the finish. Slightly vegetal hop flavor emerged mid-palate and transformed into a pleasant grapefruit character in the aftertaste. A hint of yeasty-breadiness was evident from mid-palate to aftertaste. Medium bodied with a nicely supple texture enhanced by a gentle carbonation. A very refreshing, flavorful APA; one that I could drink with a good pizza and good company all summer day long. I would have liked a more present malt aroma though but the finely balanced bitter/sweet characters that made this brew quite easy drinking compensated nicely. Thanks Drew!
