22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a summer release so it should be pretty fresh. Pours fairly crystal clear orange amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, floral, grass, lemon zest, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine resin bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and minimal cloying bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and very sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice DIPA. All around nice balance of hop and malt notes; and quite smooth to sip on. No complaints, a very enjoyable offering.

Whew. Blast of hops in the mouth on this one. Strong salty and citrus tones. Nice consistent flavor. It doesn't really go anywhere on the flavor profile. Stays on one track, and that's fine by me really. It's pretty easy to drink, considering the style. If you see this one available, I vote to go for it. I'm appreciating these many IPAs and DIPAs I've had lately that just give a good drinking experience as opposed to being all showy.

Pours a golden-orange clear liquid. A large amount of carbonation creates a fluffy white head that sits on top of the brew throughout the drink.
Smell is amazing. The hops smell so fresh and bright. Citrus, grapefruit, orange, and flowery hops. Amazing scents, one of the best I have ever smelled.
Tastes are really strong on this double IPA. Intense hop tastes of grapefruit. A bit of piney earthiness and malty sweetness as well.
Mouthfeel has a thickness to it. Dries out the mouth a bit, leaving one to take another sip.
Drinkability is good on this brew from Buckeye. Great local Cleveland beer that I would recommend to anyone. Go out of your way to find this beer and get it. Great stuff!

22 oz bottle courtesy of kirok1999, thanks Mark! Pours a lightly hazed golden color with a small white head. Retention and lacing are both average.

Smells like sugary malt, toffee and green grape fruitiness. Not really all that pleasant, although there are parts of it that shine well enough. Ive had enough Buckeye offerings to say this has the same tropical fruit yeast/hop combo.

Taste is toffee, citricly tropical hops with a shit-ton of bitterness. I am not sure I can distinguish this a whole lot from the Hippie IPA, they seem very similar too me. Body is lacking and the beer jumps from flavoring hop to bittering without any flow and softness in between. I like some of the hop flavors, but overall the bomber is a bit hard to finish by myself.

Aroma: Citrusy and piney hop resins noted up front. Mild caramel malt notes in the background as it warms. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Nearly clear amber pour with a low sticky white head that retains well.

Flavor: More piney and resiny hop notes up front. Pleasant biscuit-like and caramel malt notes follow. Balance is firmly bitter and the finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Slight slickness and carbonic bite that add to the complexity.

Overall impression: A nice American IPA. A little too malty for my liking but still in style and still hop-forward enough to keep me interested. Worth a try.

Thanks to Clegolfski as shooting me this one as an extra

Look: Orangish copper color 1/4 white head and no retention and ok lacing

Smell: Floral/veg hops in a very mild form and some caramel malt

Taste: Nice floral hop taste with some orange zest and grapefruit with just a pinch of caramel

Mouthfeel: Light body and high carbonation with a dry finish

Overall: Good IPA not great I would drink this on a hot summer day if the price is right and only if I did not have access to wonderful west coast DIPA's

Picked up a bottle of this in Athens, OH at the Jackie O's release.

A: Pours a crisp, clear light orange-yellow in my Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Maybe a half finger white head that settles to a quarter finger quickly. A little more clear and a little paler colored than I have seen in the style, but that doesn't mean it doesn't look tasty.

S: Sweet pineapple and grapefruit. Very very mellow for a DIPA, and I like it.

T: Citrus right up front, followed by a prominent hoppy bitterness as the oils wash over the palate. Finished very smooth, with a light lingering citrusy bitterness. Pretty good, but I prefer my DIPA's to be a tad smoother. Has a real malty, herbal flavor on the back end.

M: Excellent. Carbonation is perfect and the balance is just right. The only nit is the bitter hop flavors could be better integrated, but still sits really nice on the palate with one of the smoother finishes I've had in a DIPA, especially one with this flavor profile.

O: A good DIPA, but probably not a first choice for folks who prefer theirs citrusy and sweet. This one definitely rides the hops and has an indistinct herbal bitterness that lingers throughout. I'll need to revisit this one fresh from the tap.

From 22oz bomber to stemmed Jackie O's tulip on 6/26/11
*From notes

I purchased this bomber at Bella Vino in Athens, OH on June 25th after the Jackie O's bottle release.

A: Clean, filtered golden amber. A hearty pour yields a massive, 3+ finger head. The lacing is a beaut - big, thick gobs of the sticky stuff rim the glass.

S: Slightly fruity, though more of the bittering hops come through here. Hints of pineapple run from beginning to end.

T: Cloyingly juicy, a big-ass kick to the jowls. Though the fruit is present, the bittering hop oil is the star here, though the balance with the biscuity malt is impressive.

M: Masterful. It's creamy beyond compare and makes the entire beer a better, more enjoyable experience. Rich, velvety and the hefty weight is close to perfect.

O: Buckeye '76 DIPA is one of those rewarding finds that make craft beer so much fun. It's a solid beer - if you're ever in Ohio, be sure to look for it. Damn if this ain't a little Rust Belt treasure. Well done Buckeye.
