Poured into a pint glass out of a growler.
Pours a nearly clear medium copper with a one finger white head. Some light lacing on the sides of the glass along with a small layer of fizz on top of the beer.
The aroma is much more Earthy than fruity with tree bark, soil, and an overall dank quality about it. A touch of pine is thrown in but the aroma is far from piny.
The flavor continues this earthy character. I pick up on the dankness much more in the flavor along with more pine and tree bark. There is perhaps a touch of overripe orange but the fruit is very understated. Bitterness is on the high side with a good mouthfeel and just a touch of stickiness on the finish.
Overall, a good IPA but there is really nothing about it that makes it stand out from all of the others out there. Good to drink but forgettable afterwards.

Im really starting to enjoy beers in cans.
A-Looks great, I like an unfiltered beer with little tasty goodies floating around in it. Nice creamy head, beautiful deep golden color.
S-I absolutely love the smell. There is just something about a well balanced IPA that just does it for me. I get a huge wiff of malt, and then the hops slap you. Its quite nice.
T-Mmmm and then you taste it. My first reaction was wow, this is malty! A nice change from all the hop-overkill IPAs Ive had recently. I havent had a IPA like this in awhile. Its really great and I dont normally score beers this high. The Columbus hops are earthy and pungent and kinda dank. Maybe a little bit of pine. I dont get citrus, and I like that. The malts they chose compliment the hops and its such a good blend. A bitter, malty treat for sure.
M-This is one really smooth drinking beer. Creamy head and its like silk going down. Some might want a dryer or lighter IPA, but this ones a bit more full bodied, almost chewy. I love it. Its a rare thing for me to score a brew this high.
Overall, this is one killer, delicious beer. If you see it, grab it! You wont be disappointed. Beer in cans is great!

Can > Pint Glass
A - Cloudy orange with half a finger of fizzy white head, no lacing.
S - Biscuit malt, caramels, sweet orange candy, pine, a little medicinal undertone
T - Big malty sweetness up front, then you get a medium piney bite, a weird aftertaste that I cant pinpoint.
M - Chewy and bitter
O - Decent but there's way better stuff out there.
