Big notes of citrus, pine and orange juice like smells. A very crisp and scrub the tongue bitterness washes over my taste buds with spicyness and orange like flavors come out. Tropical fruit flavors in taste as well. What a great flavor this one has even better than the aroma which is great as well.

For a single hop beer the complexity is blowing me away. If they didn't say single hop I'd never tell the difference. It makes me want to brew with Columbus hops because of the bitter and very flavorful qualities this certain strain gives. Very impressed with this one.

O: Yum; that is all.

This pours with an orange-tan-straw color along with nice foam. Visually appealing. Big citrusy aroma with some lemony notes. Flavor has a pleasing upfront bittering. I enjoyed the light lemon peel and touch of pine on the finish. Easy drinking and tasty.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours dark amber with a full three finger white head which maintains it's structure well above the glass. Impressive, great retention and lace.

S: Pine, cedarwood, grass and a hint of vegetation. A 'darker' green smell than most IPAs. Smells good for sure.

T: Green cedar, very piney which I like but not overly bitter. Some lemon, but the citrus character is minor. Nice balance with the pale malt.

M: Medium-bodied, resiny, soft carbonation, medium aftertaste.

O: It's not the most full flavoured IPA out there, but the flavours that are there are quite good. I've always liked the Columbus hop and I like this effort out of the IE.
