A beer that makes living in Columbus even better! Before I get to my review I'm going to devert to a quick rant about how great the beers coming out of Columus have been the last year or two. I remember back when I first started getting into good beer and was really a novice at this whole thing about a decade ago and I would try everything I could under the sun. I remember thinking Columbus Brewing was middle of the road at best. Lucky for me, things change. When I don't feel like dropping the extra cash on Two Hearted this is generally where my money goes. Pours a golden-amber color with a georgeous fluffy white head. The smell is of wonderful floral, fruity hops with just a touch of pine. Taste is much the same with a little bit of orange and lemon follow by a nicely balance bitterness. Overall not as harshly bitter as I tend to like most of my IPA's but still a beautiful beer worth seeking out.
Serving type: on-tap

4.2/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, floral hops, piney undertones and sweet toasty malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, light mango, bitter pine resins, floral hops and sweet toasty malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

12oz Bottle received in trade with mtomlins - thanks!
Appearance - Light copper colour with a large size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some nice lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Hops, apricots, malts, melon, grapefruit
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste apricot, grapefruit, and pineapple. There is also some malts, melon and lot of dry hoppy notes.
Overall - Lots of hoppy flavour and some malt to back up the rest of the fruity notes. This is my first beer from this brewer and it's very solid. Reminds me a bit of a better version of the flying monkeys smashbomb ipa available to me locally.
