Had it on tap a few days ago but review is from my growler fill. Pours hazy orange/yellow, with a lacy white head, healthy head for a growler. The nose on this is amazing, piney, tropical citrus, lemon, bready, juicy, crisp, clean, need I say more? Tastes as its smells, great citrus fruit, not bitter like some DIPAs, so refreshing . It's got a great texture, without being "thick". The finish is so smooth for a DIPA, and doesn't leave you with a bitter finish, just enjoyable. This beer is not over rated, one of the best I've had. They've been talking about bottling this for a while, hopefully it's sooner than later!

Huge thanks to Tony for this growler, fresh from the source.
Lacking proper glassware, I poured this into a Night Shift feku. Very attractive beer, golden color, good clarity overall with a slight haze, topped with a beautiful cap of white foamy head; excellent retention, and nice pillowy lacing. The aroma was dank and earthy, notes of body odor and marijuana, pine resin. It seems like a lot of people pick up citrus notes in this beer, but I really got nothing citrusy whatsoever, and it was certainly lacking in crispiness. The taste largely reflected the nose, very dank, wet, flavors of pine needles, pot, a little oniony, with a good dose of bready malts that I'd expect from an average DIPA. Body was about medium, clean mouthfeel, but again, not really crisp or fresh/zesty. Definitely a nice beer, and easily drinkable, but really nothing tremendous.

On tap at The Daily Growler in Upper Arlington, OH.
Pours a hazy yellow, with a one inch head and sheets of lacing down the glass.
Smells include citrus zest, tangy grapefruit, sweet and juicy orange, pineapple, apricot, and peach. Just outstanding smell, jumps out of the glass with fervor.
The taste is just incredible as well. Went down way too quick, despite all the flavor jam packed into this DIPA. Strong orange pineapple and grapefruit flavors, keeping it a little bit sweet, then the resinous pine slaps you across the face, makes it presence, and holds you in. Quite bitter, even more so as the beer warms up. The bitterness mixed with the juicy hop flavor is perfect, prototypical dry pine/citrus style IPA. Pretty dank flavor here, methinks.
Medium bodied, incredibly, there is no alcohol flavors. Drinks like a pale ale, hits you with flavor like a DIPA. Dry finish, warming, crisp mouthfeel.
Amazing stuff here.

Drank from a 32 fl. oz. growler acquired in a trade with mps
Served in a snifter
The brilliantly clear, glowing, pale yellow-amber liquid was topped by a flimsy, bright white crown that fell to a lasting, bubbly ringlet. Hardly any lacing.
Fruity hop notes dominated the nose. Lots of tropical fruitiness. Mango and papaya were most apparent. Quite sweet. Strong peach notes.
The beer's flavor profile was very similar to the nose. Super fruity and juicy. Lots of candied orange peel. Intense peach and apricot notes. Some tangerine as well. A semi-sweet, caramel malt backbone gave the beer balance yet did not detract from the hoppiness. Ruby red grapefruit came through on the finish. Just slightly pithy and bitter.
The mouthfeel was somewhat disappointing. It seemed that my growler had definitely lost a good amount of its carbonation in transit from Ohio. The super fine, mild effervescence nevertheless gave the liquid a slightly slick creaminess.
Columbus Bodhi is a flavorful and immensely drinkable double IPA, but it is definitely a half-step below the best offerings of the style. Someday I would love another opportunity to sample this fresh on-tap.
