Malty & green. Aroma is very candi sugar, subdued green hops. Lots of hop bitterness but not a whole lot of flower flavor. Hops do balance the malt well.

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.

Buckeye and I don't seem to be seeing "eye to eye". Citrusness became more appearant after warming, but wasn't a beer I would have drank warm. It was just the hoppy bite at the end kept me from drinking it too fast.

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.

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

Bomber purchased at Rivers Bend in Ohio. Pours deep amber orange with a thick pillowy white head. Citrus hop aroma. Medium light mouthfeel and fizzy texture. Llight biscuity malt flavor, countered by spicy hops. I also pick up distracting amounts of diacetyl on the finish, which is bitter and soapy. I did not care for this, nor the Hippie IPA. Perhaps I am getting some bad or poorly handled bottles?

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.
