A Columbus single hop feels like the perfect beer to celebrate the USA's 2-0 win over Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, that qualifies them for the 2014 World Cup! Label says "Showcasing a single hop variety in a Saison yeast. Two separate additions of Columbus hops. Pils, Cara Red and Caramel 20 malts." Growler picked up last weekend at the BrewFarm. Tasted 10 September 2013.

Pours a clear medium-pale golden orange. Pretty color. Just a little visible carbonation. Half-finger of white head, okay retention, nice lacing.

Smell is herbal and spicy, with a little honey sweetness. It's nice, but I'm not picking up a whole lot of saison character. At times it's subtle and delicate, at others it's just faint.

Taste is interesting and varied, but always in the realm of spicy-grainy-bitter. It has a warmth and a mild sweetness that provide nice balance to those sharper flavors. Earthy undertones as well. Persistent bitterness in the finish. Unusual for a saison, and the flavors are dancing to a different tune than most saisons I've had - a distinct hop tilt. But quite nice, all around.

Feel is good. Medium-light body, crisp and refreshing. Carbonation's a little on the low end, but I attribute that to the growler. And it's got enough to get the flavors buzzing.

I really like Dave's single hop beers. And I'm enjoying this one, but it's not one of my favorites. Columbus is an interesting hop, definitely enjoyable, but not outstanding. Earthy, spicy, and lastingly bitter.
