light copper color with medium sized creamy head that lasts forever. Aroma has moderate amount of citrusy hops, fairly malty, lots of caramel. Flavor has chewy malts, fair amount of citrusy hops, moderate caramel, with a decently bitter finish. A nice pale, although a bit darker and maltier than I like my pale ales. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle: Copper colored pour, with a loose foamy off white head. Aroma is citrusy, with some nice malts in the background. Flavor, a good bit of citrus up front that gives way to carmelly finish. Some moderate bitterness on the finish as well. This is pretty good pale ale. Good session beer for sure. Lowe1983 (1594) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2007
#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.

This beer has a nice head, generous hopping and a very crisp flavor. NeroFiddled (105) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2002
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.

Very drinkable example of an APA. Smooth, citrus, nicely hopped. Crisp finish. Fresh, the brewery is close. 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. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Light copper hue with good but dimishing head, little lace. Big grapefruit and pineapple aroma with hints of toasted malts and sublime spices. The taste followed suit, very fruity and crisp balanced by a smooth coating of malt. The finish was lingering bitter. A true APA and quite tasty, a must taste for anyone who seeks hoppy pale ales. Thanks, Drew who just keeps spreading the news about Buckeye Brewing. aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2004
I’m getting more of a spruce sap-type aroma more than a citrus hop aroma, but whatever. This is quite hoppy for an APA in aroma and flavor. In fact, it verges on being an IPA instead of an APA. The body is fairly light, despite a nice caramel and wood maltiness. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Lots of hops but plenty of malt to back it up. Fragrant and well balanced. Good beer.
