4.14/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours hazy orange with two fingers head. Leaves light lacing.

Smells of orange zest. Slight earthy piney notes.

Taste is pleasantly albeit mildly bitter. I get mostly orange and tangerine notes. Jammy malty qualities.

Medium on the mouthfeel. Lighter carbonation.

Pleasant enough and quite enjoyable. But in the extremely competitive IPA market there quite a lot of beers of this caliber -- which for IPA lovers is a good thing.

Thanks to InebriatedJoker for sending me these extras. 12oz bottle poured in a pint glass. The body is slightly hazy, orange in color, and is topped by a two finger white head. Very appealing. Upon diving my nose inside, mouthwatering tropical citrus hops take over my scent.

The taste is highlighted by a mixture of delicious grapefruit and juicy oranges. There might be a little sweet peach or mango hiding back there as well. This tasteful brew finishes with a light bitter punch and some balancing malts.

What a fantastic IPA with a nice light body that's extremely drinkable. It reminds me a bit of Odell's IPA and would be in my regular rotation if I had access to it.

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Hazy orange with a couple fingers of white head

Smell is orange peel, loads of citrus (seems to be the Ohio IPA theme which is fine by me) A little passion fruit thrown in the finish.

Taste is oranges, lemons, grapefruit, pine resin, extremely fresh tasting hops, a little malt in the finish, a little lemon zest bitterness in the end

Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation and a semi dry finish.

Wow is all I can say about this beer. It is refreshing, flavor full and keeps me coming back for more and more... Would have a case at all times if I could get it.

Hazy golden orange body. The head looks super sticky and I just love the webs of lacing it spins down the glass.

Holy hell this beer can be smelled from a foot away. Orange and grapefruit, pine, and sticky icky. It has a sweet tropical fruit balance to the resinous pine.

Oranges and pine, oranges and pine. Very nice play between the two. It has a bready malt balance before breaking into a long and bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is creamy then sticky. It's very soft going down and costs the tongue with sticky residue.

Man, I really dig this IPA and hope to have it again. This beer has its shit together.

No bottled on date. Tulip glass.

A: Pours a pale orange color with two fingers of white head, pretty large bubbles. Decent clarity, superb retention, and good lacing.

S: Nice mix of resiny pine, biscuit and a little carmel malt, citrus and fruit.

T: Biscuity malt, piney hops, a little white grapefruit and grapefruit peel, mild to moderate bitterness which transitions to a long, smooth, mildly bitter finish. Mostly dry.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Slight crispness.

O: Pretty good IPA, and well enough constructed, but nothing to write home about.

Received in trade from Bencooper27, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a good sized fluffy white head that recedes slowly leaving lots of lace on the way down. Aromas of grapefruit pine and resin with a slight earthy edge. Malt aroma? maybe? The flavor is lightly bready malt with a light sugar edge. Earthy pine and resin flavor with only hint of citrus. Light hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Very nice IPA, I'm glad I was talked into trying it.

Thanks to TATURBO for bringing this beer back from Ohio for me!

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: yellow bodied beer with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Thick lacing all over the glass.

Smell: oranges, grapefruit rind, pine. Hops smell fresh and juicy! Hint of bread malts. Fantasic aeromatics coming out of this IPA. The smell of fresh hops fill the room! You dont even need to put your nose into the glass to know what the nose on this beer is all about.

Taste: Mild to moderate bitterness. Slightly resinous pine and melon notes are first thing you taste. Sweet oranges combine with grapefruit rind; a really nice citrus presence in this beer. Hint of minty and slightly fruity yeast notes as well. Tastes really fresh. Great balance between the malts and hops; hops are allowed to shine and the bready malts are in the perfect proportion so that they dont get in the way of the hops. Aftertaste is mostly of pine and grapefruit rind that builds a little bit becoming more bitter; consistant moderate bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Very drinakable IPA. Bright and refreshing beer.

Overall: Columbus nailed this IPA. I would say that this is the best IPA in Ohio. I love that this beer has a huge nose and its not brutally bitter like most IPA. It seems like the brewer went for the fresh and balanced approach with this hoppy beers's recipe and I dig it. I get so tired of people just over hopping this beer style. I can really appreciate the finesse of the brewer. One of the best IPA's that I have drank in a long time.

Received a 12oz bottle as an extra in a recent trade and drinking it now...
Wow, quite the surprise...I'm really digging this beer. It strikes the perfect balance between bitterness and hop flavor. Finishes dry and with a little hop bite that begs me to sip again. More back loaded it seems on the hop additions... balanced for flavor and aroma than bitterness which always works better in IPA's imo.
Very nice aroma...the simcoe still coming through even though it's probably an older bottle?
The color is as expected...bit cloudy but what unfiltered IPA isn't?
Definitely worth the try if seen...wish we could get it here in New England!

Thanks, claaark13!

Hazed orange. Moderate off-white head. Gorgeous, sticky, irregular spiderwebs of lace left down the glass. Gorgeous IPA.

Tons of bright, juicy citrus notes and expressive pine hop character. A touch of sweetness. Fantastic. The Midwest's shining IPA star.

The flavor follows the aroma, along with a moderate level of bitterness. Juicy citrus, pine, a touch of sweetness, and bitterness combine exceptionally well.

Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Fantastic. Easily, my favorite Midwest IPA.

Purchased: Received in a trade

A: Big off-white head showing excellent retention and good lace, on a golden-orange beer that is clear on the first pour and then cloudy on the second, owing to the unfiltered nature.

S: Very nice aromas start with floral hop notes, and then have citrus/grapefruit smells and some sweet maltiness in the background.

T: Taste has a bite of hop bitterness and flavorful fruity/citrus presence. The grapefruit-like taste provides tanginess along with the bitterness.

M: Crisp and clean mouthfeel, with prickly carbonation on a medium body. The finish features more hop bitterness

O: Very good IPA; maybe less balanced and more one dimensional than others I've enjoyed.

Thanks to buschbeer for this!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Thanks to cneville for this nice, local extra. Pours and orange sunburst color - completely unfiltered and opaque - with a super heavy and foamy off-white head. Even minutes later, a huge chunk of foam is just chilling on top of the beer. Nice lacing all the way down, too.

Aroma starts off with a quick left jab of citrus fruits - and it's almost more of a fruit-juice type aroma rather than the hoppy-citrus aroma. Red grapefruit is big, along with mild pineapple and mango. The fruits are heavy, juicy, and sweet on the nostrils. Light yeast aromas float around as well. The hops give off a bit of an earthy and leafy aroma, but it's far more regressed than I would have expected - not necessarily a bad thing, though.

I take my first swig of Columbus IPA and it feels like I just took a bite out of an extremely ripe, tropical fruit. Big-time juiciness, mainly in the form of grapefruit. Other tropical fruits are surely there, though a bit harder to pick out. I'll go with my hunch from the aroma - pineapples and mangoes. Just as I start to wonder if I'm drinking a juice instead of a beer - the bitterness shows up to the party, about halfway through. The hop profile is leafy and a touch ashy, and the bitterness is pretty damn strong. It hits hard on the back of the tongue and overall, feels heavier than 50 IBU.

There's a nice contrast with this beer - it has the delicate juicy sweetness that seems to crowd the front of your mouth that coincides with the leafy hop bitterness that stings that back of the mouth and tongue. A very interesting profile, that's for sure. The aftertaste errs more towards the bitter side, with the fruit flavors even developing into more of a pith-like stature, bitter and mildly abrasive. Malt is mild overall, with a hint of sweetness through and through. Your mouth gets coated with some yeasty flavors and faint caramel malt in the end, still battling the bitterness wounds. Surprisingly thin and under-carbonated, giving a wet, slick mouth feel.

Didn't know what to expect out of this, hasn't really been on my radar. But it was pretty tasty. Huge tropical fruitiness that comes paired with a heavy bitterness that work quite well together. Good drinkability at 6.5% ABV.

A - pours a deep murky amber/orange color. A fingers worth of tightly packed frothy white foam sits atop the opaque liquid. The foam quickly dissipates but covers the glass with little spots of lacing with each sip.

S - the nose is very intense with lots of complexity. Notes of citrus, flowers and pine just jumps from the glass. citrus notes of sweet orange pulp and candied grapefruit zest. hints of tropical fruit come out more as it warms like pineapple and passion fruit. hints of pine needles and flowers round out the nose.

T - sweet grainy bread malt profile up front. citrus flavors perk up mid palate with notes of sweet orange peel, grapefruit rind, and lemon pith. snappy bitterness. hints of pine needles. crisp slightly sweet finish.

M - smooth and creamy texture with a medium body. medium carbonation close to high.

O - Great IPA. Wish I had easy access to this, it would be something I would consistently come back to.

S: Dank aroma that is similar to Sucks, citrus, and pine. Airfreshner

T: Bitter hop bomb, some surprising sweetness and pine. Hop forward.

A: Pours a moderately hazy orange color. The orange-tinted head is tall, dense, and a bit rocky. Retention is impressive, and a lot of lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Pure tropical hop aromas. Tropical fruit and citrus is very prominent. I'm guessing Centennial and/or Simcoe are at work here. Orange, pineapple, and some resin seem bright. Little malt aroma is present; instead, it's a pretty neutral canvas for some seriously hoppy aromas to star.

T: Very faint pale maltiness up front. Little sweetness. Hop bitterness is robust and sticks around a while into the finish. Vibrant hop flavors accompany the bitterness throughout. Orange, pineapple, grapefruit, and resin are prominent.

M: Medium body with light but perky carbonation. The overall mouthfeel is slightly thin; I dig the relative lack of malt sweetness in terms of flavor, but it seems that the mouthfeel suffers very slightly as a result. Hop bitterness contributes a lasting dryness.

O: A very good IPA from Columbus Brewing Company. The big, citric and tropical American hop bill is right up my alley. Highly recommended.

Pours a hazy yellowish-orange with a white head. A nice hoppy aroma of some citrus fruit on paired with a nice, sweet and bready malt backbone. Flavor was bitter and citric on top of a bready malt underbelly with a piney and bitter finish. A medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, another good IPA from Ohio.

Having this for the first time in a few years thanks to beesy

Pours a little bit of a murky dark yellow with a small white head leaving decent cling on the edge of the glass. Solid lacing down the glass.

Big hop presence on the nose. I get floral and citrus as the main components. A little bit of a biscuity sweetness, but hop forward.

Starts off a little citrusy with a little honey like sweetness. Citrus hits more mid-palate before finishy piney and grassy. Resin lingers on the tongue.

Medium mouthfeel. Spot on carb. Lots of oily hops create a great mouthfeel.

A great example of the style. Not quite the best I've ever had, but solid across the board. Hops punch hard, but it's still a pretty well balanced beer and I love the mouthfeel and finish especially on this one.

12 oz. bottle poured into standard pint glass. Thanks goes out to mrfong07 for sending this one as an extra. It is difficult to make out the numbers on the bottom but if I am both reading it correctly and interpreting the code correctly, it was bottled on August 28, 2012.

A - Pours golden brown in color with a thin, sporadic head. Dies to a speckled film on the surface and leaves behind a nice lacing.

S - The smell is big and becomes apparent immediately from an armslength during the pour. Big floral hops with a prominent biscuit malt backbone. Some sweet honeyblossom and citrus as well. Solid.

T - Very sweet to start, floral and honey-like. Sweet and sour citrus hits hard midpalate, followed by a nice bitter grass hop finish. Pine/grass lingers on the back of the tongue.

M - A shade over medium in body with excellent carbonation. Coats the tongue and goes down smooth. Exceptional mouthfeel, especially for a regular gravity beer.

O - This is a great example of how much flavor can be packed into a non-imperial beer. Great floral and citrus notes on the nose and tongue. Very well balanced at two months old. The mouthfeel is the strongest facet of this beer, but that is not to say the other aspects are subpar. This is a great beer I would enjoy regularly if I had access.

Live review. Poured from the one of the six 16 oz. bottles that I bought at my local Giant Eagle for, I believe, $7.99 into a clean, clear glass. I had this on tap some months ago but never did review it. I recall really enjoying it at the restaurant that served it. No "best by" date observed by me on the bottle. It might have been on the box but unfortunately that has already been recycled.

A Just a great look of a hazy, opaque orange body under a nice creamy generous head that took its time (maybe 3 minutes) to dissipate down to a thin layer on top of the body. I really like this look, a mature, seasoned look for an IPA. 4.5

S A really nice floral hops smell with the backdrop of sweet malt. This is an excellent smell to a beer of this style. I am not looking forward to the flowery floral smell carrying over to the taste but the fact that it exists in the smell is very welcomed indeed. The highest marks from me for the smell of this American IPA. 5.0

T Hops bitterness balanced out nicely by the soft pillow of sweet malt in this obviously artisan American IPA. So many tastes envelope the tongue. The aforementioned bitterness and sweetness dance about a great barley grain stage. Just a great tasting IPA. 4.5

M Despite the rather high bitterness and malt profile, there is a softness or creaminess to the mouthfeel that is not common. It makes for a highly enjoyable, drinkable IPA. 4.0

D/O Drinkability is very high. Despite the moderately high ABV I could drink 4 or 5 of these without hesitation. Overall this is a world class American IPA. 5.0

I forgot who gave this to me. I'm usually good with keeping track of who gave what, but I guess I missed this one, and I'm really sorry. If you gave me this please let me know asap so I can give you credit.

Big creamy 1.5 finger head fades semi slowly with nice lacing, hazy grapefruit peach colored.

Nose touch of bready semi sweet malt, then nice citrus hops, touch of grapefruit and tropical fruit, floral, a light Amarillo like fruitiness.

Taste has fresh hops, light tropical fruit, little juicy citrus, Amarillo fruity flavors, tangerine, nectarine, citrusy peach, etc, and light spicy piney hops. It has a decent bitter bite with light sweet malty base, touch grainy, nice balance and feels like it should have some booze but doesn't. Finish adds a long lingering bitterness, tropical fruit hops, quite dry, more of that tangerine and grapefruit like tropical fruit hops.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, good carb.

Overall a nice ipa, fairly impressed. Good hop character, nice light malt balance, good bitterness, drinkable, a very well done IPA.

Always grab some sixers of this when in OH visiting the in-laws. Noticed I never gave this a proper review. 12oz bottle into a goblet. The pour yields a dark honey-amber with a thick frothy bone-white head. Great retention, with spotty lace left behind. Pine, citrus, floral overtones. Nothing new here, but the aroma is so potent and fresh. Love it.

Medium carbonation gives this beer enough heft to hold up the flavors, but without any lasting astringency. The reason I love this beer so much is the perfect balance between the bitter hops and sweet malty backbone. I would say this even leans slightly to the sweet side, which isn't a detriment to it at all. Grapefruit, musk melon, orange give this a nice fruity quality. The hops add just a touch of oily feel as well, and they don't linger too long on the aftertaste. Just enough "burn" to satisfy the hop-head in me, but fleeting enough to keep me gulping this one. This is one of the most drinkable and approachable IPAs I have had, and it will be one I continually buy when in the area. Can't wait until Christmas when I can get some more!

Bright saturated orange jewel tone, thin layer of white foam that leaves a little irregular spotty lace. Second pour hazes it up a bit. Retention is ok.

A fairly pungent nose, big citrus rind... orange and grapefruit.

Creamy smooth feel, light carb and a moderate hop bitterness that isn't too overpowering. Bitter grapefruit rind, mellow flash of malt sweetness in the middle. Nicely melded, would be a go-to everyday IPA, the lingering hop bitterness lasts for awhile. Overall it's very drinkable and seamless in feel. Would buy this by the sixer easily.

Thanks Chris for sharing this one!

Thanks to inebriatedjoker for this one - poured into a sweet Columbus pint that he also sent:

Body is slightly darker than Bodhi but it's got that same haze thing going on. Thick, dense white cap of froth retains well on top of that, laces perfectly.

Smells very appetizing... sweet, smooth hop profile, far from harsh but still the dominant player, some pale malts beneath that. Inviting.

It's similar to Bodhi in the way it displays a rich hop profile without imposing an invasive level of bitterness. That said, I would guess that the IBU's here are actually a bit higher than in Bodhi. Tangerine, mango, spruce tips, and just that faint dry bitterness on the tail end - like the kind you would get from a hot black tea. Nice.

Thanks for sending this one Mike - I wish this could have a year-round spot in my fridge.

Bottle thanks to clegolfski, poured into a tulip.

Pour: Hazy amber orange with three fingers of awesome off white head. Leaves very sticky lacing, and the head stays around forever.

Smell: A nice tangerine and pine with a light caramel backbone.

Taste: A little more malt forward than I was expecting, but still really good tangerine juiciness comes through.

Mouthfeel: Lighter than I expected as well, but nice juiciness.

Overall: A nice IPA, and better than Head Hunter in terms of Ohio offerings, IMO.
