Though not always consistent, when they get this right, its the king of their fine line of pale ales

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2007 On tap at Brewkeeper in Bedford, Ohio 9/13/06. Clear gold/amber with a medium white head. Huge hop aroma in this one, mostly citrus. I could be happy just smelling this beer. Medium body, resinous mouthfeel, light carbonation. Toffee , caramel, and some lighter fruits are quickly overcome by spicy, citrus hops. Long, bitter finish. This is a hopheads delight.

2006 GTMW. The beer pours to a caramel body with a thin fizzy head. The aroma is sweet juicy fruit hops. Grassy and fruity with nectarines. The flavor is sweet juicy hops, very nicely balanced and not overly bitter. Nicely textured palate. Good coating.

Woohoo! Im the tenth rater of this bad boy and it deserves its reputation. I even managed to witness the death of this honorable hop showcase. I walk in, start talking to kujo9 and order up my pint of the stuff. No problem, except Im planning on walking out with a growler. They dont provide growlers anymore and only fill growlers you provide. Doesnt matter. I got the last or next to last pint anyway. Dont worry kids, even the brewer was surprised at the beers popularity and quick demise. Id bet on it becoming a frequent tenant on the Buckeye tap lines. Hazy amber with a thick creamy head. Huge hoppy aroma. Apricot and grapefruit. Nice malt backbone, but the hops are definitely the focus. Tongue tingling from the dominating Amarillo flavor but no over-the-top or harsh bitterness. Damn I love this hop. Damn I love this beer.

On tap at the brewery. Translucent copper with a thin, jiggling grey head. Aroma of caramel, cedar and cherry crisp join a continuously wafting dry hopped profile. Simply excellent, sweet and bitter. Citrusy pineapples and grapefruit are out of the gate first. Caramel sweetness, some pine needles and grass stains make this everything an IPA can be. Quite possibly the best balanced IPA Ive had the pleasure of meeting. I simply loved it.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 Orange with reddish hints. Fuzzy white head that doesnt stick around for too long. Sweet aromas with zippy hints of lemon just explode out of this stuff. A friend of mine blown awy by the fragrant presence of a fresh pint placed in front of me, and he was sitting two stools away from me! Full bodied. Sweet with medium lovibond crystal malt and simply bursting with intense lemon and grapefruit. Seriously like biting into a 8% ABV grapefruit! The finish creeps up on you. The sweetness sits on the front and center of you tounge then, slowly, the sides begn to burn as the alpha acids flex their muscles. I never thought Buckeye could top Hippie, but this may be the one to do it.

Tried a sample of this and brought home a growler. This is simply an amazing beer. Beautiful complexion and wonderful nose. This beer is just sticky with amarillo hop. That really comes through in the citrus notes of this beer and busts with grapefruit and lemon. Get as much of this as you can. :)

Hazy orange amber w/a lasting off white head. Lemony citrus aroma, possbily from lemon zest, but I'd have to ask Garin for sure. If not, it's the hops, which are also very citrusy! Followed by a toasty, caramel malt, and light fruitiness. Very well balanced. Probably a little too well for an IPA, but it's more to my liking! Citrusy, zesty hop flavor that lasts into the finish and aftertaste. Finish is also semi dry with a light fruitiness. The toasty malt and caramel flavors take a back seat in this one. medium body w/a lighter carbonation and a little warming in the mouth just to let you know the alcohol is there; also very smooth. Another solid output from Buckeye! Although not as good, IMHO, as the '76, it's a fine stand in until the '76 shows up next summer.

Straw yellow color, medium sized white head. Tons of grapefruit in the nose, very hoppy. Flavor is pretty hoppy and bitter, but has a respectable amount of malt that come in towards the finish to give it a nice balance. A very nice brew.

Hoptoberfest '03, Buckeye Brewing, draft. Deliciously smooth, but mildly bitter for an IPA. Citrus notes with the bitterness makes for the perfect session ale, and the 7% abv! I could drink this all of the time.
