It pours a copper color. A one finger white head, slightly creamy, dissipating rapidly. Some bubbles lazily stream toward the surface.
The nose is of citrus, especailly grapefruit, spicy hops, malt, and a mild floral note. The taste consists of grapefruit, a little apple, bitter hops, and a malty, nutty, finish, leading into a bit of a phenolic aftertaste.
The mouth is rather light, showing decent complexity. Thought the aftertaste is a bit harsh and unpleasnt.
I've toured this brewery and really like some of their beers--this is by no means a bad beer and certainly quaffable, but I wish I liked it more. It's not the beer that I would want to give somebody and say, "this is what Columbus brewing is all about."
