Thanks so much to NW2285 for beering this forward! Pours a beautiful cloudy golden honey color with thick, two finger white head. Good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is the finest example of DIPA that I have ever experienced - redolent of grapefruit, pine, and just a touch of dank. Very hop forward on the nose. The taste does not disappoint, it is every bit the equal of the nose, if not superior. Grass, pine, and citrus come first, followed by a mild malt backbone that does an outstanding job of balancing out the mild bitter finish. This is the finest tasting DIPA I've ever had! It's balanced and smooth, the bitterness isn't overdone as in west coast IPAs. It has a medium body with good carbonation. Finishes dry. I can say without hesitation that this is the best DIPA I've had to date, and I'm pessimistic that I'll find one better. Please bottle this Columbus Brewing, please!

Cheers to Bilco for sharing this

Review from notes, 6/7/14

Appearance: Lightly hazy, honey-orange in color with some nice tangerine and gold hues - pours with a small, off-white head, fades to a few wisps of a cap, leaves some lacing

Smell: Lots of citrus, definitely juicy and definitely dank - fleshy, juicy orange and grapefruit, with some grapefruit pith - very dank with some weed, grass, and piney notes - herbal and floral citrus as well - very hoppy (obviously), simply smells bitter (a good thing)

Taste: Maybe even more aggressive than the aroma - juicy, fleshy, chewy citrus - big orange and grapefruit flesh and pith - interesting blend of dank flavors, weed, grass, pine, and hop cones - very grassy, earthy, and herbal - very interesting, if not my personal favorite for a hop profile - moderately bitter, and the pithy bitterness lingers

Mouthfeel: Medium body, light carbonation, smooth and easy to drink, some earthy dryness

Overall: A growler? Sure!

This is a solid DIPA with an impressive amount of dank, weedy, grassy, and herbal notes in addition to a solid blast of citrus. I can see why people would go nuts over this. Personally, it's novel, but not the best I've had.
