On tap at Buckeye Beer Engine. Copper/amber pour with a medium off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with a sweet malt balance. Citrus and pine hop flavor with some sweet malt on the back end. A tad more sweetness than your normal IIPA. Similar to 90 min. hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2009
on tap at the buckeye- a treat for certain- the best beer I had sampled at buckeye- huge, huge piney aroma, and the accompanying hop flavor was on full display- the sweetness supported the hops big time, and cut down on any bitterness- this finished quite nicely.

This starts off with a big hop aroma, and pours a clear amber with a full white head. The flavor is bitter, with lots and lots of hops. There’s just barely enough malt to keep it contained. There’s a long lingering bitter finish. If you like hop bombs, this is one you should try. barak316 (107) - Elyria, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Pours a clear medium light amber with a verythin almost non existent head creamy white head. Big grapefruity hop aroma with a hint if honey sweetness. Taste was big deep and complex of hops, honey and roasted malt. Unfortunately it lacks the carbonation to hang with other top eschilon IIPA’s. However this another fine offering from the guys over at Buckeye Brewing. clingman71 (300) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Draft at the Engine. Big Citrus. Deep orangish amber, slight head. Big citrus aroma. Flavor begins caramel malty sweet, the the sticky hoppiness takes over. Very well done, extremely enjoyable.

Piney notes of pineapple and mango. Medium sweet, medium plus hoppiness, well balanced, and quite drinkable for the high hop levels. Tmoney99 (15114) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft - Cask. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bitter flavor with a medium to heavy smooth bittersweet alcohol finish of long duration. A standout beer. DoublEE (781) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours a clean orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, grapefruity hops, and a hint of spice, almost minty. In the taste, grapefruity hops, and small minty burn, and nice malt. A small bite but mainly smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry, grapefruity hop in the aftertaste. Hides ABV, nice big flavor, I really enjoyed this beer! puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Fresh, juicy, grapefruity hops. Nice nose. Lots of peachy and nectarine notes. A iipa that non-beer drinkers would like. Very jammy. Big body with low bitterness. Not in your face. A bit of lactic acid puts off the finish.
