A: Pours a fuzzy golden-copper color with a finger of frothy white head.

S: Very balanced smell- orange and grapefruit, floral hop flavors alongside a light, sweet bready malt backbone.

T: Balance is what catches my eye again, with bready/caramel malts meeting the bitter pine and citrus hop flavors. Finish is particularly bitter, with lots of pine, grass, and lemon zest. A hint of a metallic flavor coming through as it begins to linger keeps this one from being outstanding.

M: Medium-bodied and well-carbonated, fairly creamy at first, smooth, and dry on the finish.

O: Solid IPA from Buckeye Brewing; wish it was bottle dated so I would have picked it up sooner (I'm assuming this bottle is less than ~3 months old based on when I was last at that store).

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing lings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, peach, honey, caramel, floral, grass, pine, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, pine, floral, grass, caramel, honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of citrus and pine hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA! All around good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

on tap at nano brew in cleveland. the pour is the color of apple cider, coppery to red, a little cloudy, inch of lasting white head. the nose is more of an american pale ale, a little richer in the malt and less aggressive on the hops, more balanced. caramel and pale malts combine to form a sweet flavor that is tasted before any hops at all. when the hops do hit, they seem relaxed, or maybe washed out is a better term here. maybe im being unfair. i prefaced this beer with a nano brew citramax and a fat heads head hunter, two very very good citrus first india pale ales, so this one just seemed a little bland in that context, but its still a tasty brew by all means, just less exciting hop varietals and intensity. a little short of well carbonated, medium bodied, and clean in the finish. id have several pints of this if i didnt have to drive. nothing challenging or brave about it, but a servicable balanced ipa.

Pours a clean orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, hops, mostly citrus and notes of pine hops. In the taste, a big orange citrus hops to a dry, pine hop. A hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry orange citrus to pine hops in the aftertaste. Big hops, citrus to pine, a pretty damn super!

Served on tap into a shaker glass at Corner Alley

A- Poured a dark almost brown copper color with a soapy head that left light lace

S- Huge pungent pine, grapefruit, and sweet caramel notes. Very sweet and astringent aroma

T- Some pungent grapefruit and pine hop flavors and a huge sweet caramel and raisin maltiness. This tastes like a super hopped up barleywine

M- Medium body, light to medium carbonation, does not quite finish dry

O- This has a lot of hop flavor, but also tons of maltiness. If I was tasting this blind I would have thought this was a barleywine. This is a very sweet beer.
