The Legend Valley IPA from Buckeye Lake was very good. It was in a 32oz can. It poured a clear copper with white head that left a very nice lace. The scent had bitterness with some citrus and pine. The taste was bitter through the drink and was a nice mix of English bitterness with west coast citrus and pine. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's great and worth a try.

A: This beer looks pretty darn good. A brown to amber color with a small head and great lacing.

S: Citrus forward. A good amount of grapefruit on the nose some malt sneaks in there as well.

T: I could drink this beer all day. A great citrus hop with a small malt flavor to slightly balance it out. Just a darn good taste.

M: Pretty bitter but not overwhelming. I think it has just the right amount. It keeps you wanting more.

O: Pretty darn good.

This IPA was sent to me by a friend in Ohio. It is very typical IPA, medium bitterness (IBU 65), but I thought it was very good and well balanced. I drank it from a funny looking bottle (not a can).

Look: cloudy amber with a half-inch white head.

Aroma: moderate citrus and pine aroma

Taste: The taste is citrus, grapefruit, pine, with nice lasting aftertaste. It is very good.

Feel: medium body
