4.6/5 rDev +9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Golden orange with some nice lacing which holds for a bit and dissipates.
S - Very floral bouquet with lots of citrus and pineapple aromas. This beer smells so good you almost don't want to drink it. Then you drink it and want another.
T - This IPA tastes like a high end fruity west coast IPA. One of the brewers used to work for Pizza Port I believe so this could be how this recipe came about. Strong grapefruit flavors and some pineapple. This is much more an IPA leaning towards the fruity side of hope flavors than the pine side.
M - A nice mouthfeel for a medium bodied beer. Not too much to say here, but its not thin and you aren't chewing on it.
O - This thing comes in at 6.5%, and tastes so good you will be done with a 6 pack before you even realize it. Being from Columbus, this beer makes me happy because it is my go to beer for just about any event and makes its way into most every box I put together. If you are trading with anyone from Columbus and like IPAs ask for this beer!

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.
