3.93/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a lovely dark yellow. Thin white head dissipates slowly with ample lacing. Really fresh looking
Aromas of citrus and zest of lime. Bright and vibrant hop aromas.

Taste follows the nose. Watery at first then hits with a bomb of citrus hops. Lime and grapefruit with mild pine bitterness to polish it off. Malt background is honey and bread. Oddly sweet for such a hop forward brew.

Light to medium bodied and hides abv well. Very quaffable

A nice beer that showcases Columbus very well. Great hop flavors

Serving type: on-tap

4.38/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On-tap poured into a snifter-esque glass.

Appearance
Golden amber with 1 finger of head. Excellent clarity with light carbonation.

Nose
Honey, caramel, and dank wet grass.

Taste
Dank wet grass and earthy, spicy hop flavors. Well balanced with a caramel and honey maltiness. Some sprinkles of candy sugar. Finishes with pine resin and onion.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, balanced, and subtly dry.

Overall
A perfect malt profile to compliment the Columbus hops. Really smooth and balanced with only a light bitterness. The alcohol is not noticeable. Really awesome stuff!

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served in a tulip.

Appearance: Amber orange coming off transparent with medium bubbles. White head roughly 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Bland pine scent,could be a little deeper.

Taste: Strong floral feel absolutely addicting but nothing new that you haven't had before.

Mouth: really sticky and sweet after taste. Bready type feel, feels little chewy.

Overall: Basic but overall very good DIPA. the heavy citrus and floral feel makes you not want to share it but I definitely splits the growler with one of my closest friends on his promotion. Salud!

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Mellow Mushroom in Brandon. Served in a nonic pint glass.

A: Lighter copper in color. Appears nearly clear, though there is some chill haze. Forms a half-finger of white head with medium visible carbonation.

S: Disappointingly low amount of aroma for a DIPA - grassy, pine, and grapefruit rind hops with a bit of sweet bready malt is about it.

T: Grassy and herbal hops, some spicy/onion character as well. Bready malt backbone with only very mild caramel character. Hop bitterness with fading malt sweetness in the hang.

M: Medium body, modest alcohol presence for a DIPA, and good carbonation sensation.

O: Not particularly impressive. Since it was on tap, I have no way to know how old the keg was, but this really suffered from a lack of aroma, and the hop flavor profile was far from my favorite. Nothing truly offensive, but not one I'd seek out again.

Serving type: on-tap
