On tap at Brew's Cafe
Pours a frothy, hazy burnt orange with a pillowy white cream head. Above average lacing for an imperial IPA. First smell...hmm...nirvana? Not exactly, but the closest experience I've had in the world of beers. Faint malt sweetness mingles with a whirlwind of citrus(grapefruit and clementine) and tropical(light mango with pear) flavors followed by a hop slap to the dome. Pure dankness. The intensity of the hops never lets up, but at no point do you feel overwhelmed(or underwhelmed.) Medium-full mouthfeel has just enough carbonation to please the tongue while allowing the subtle dryness to leave you wanting another sip. and another sip.
Notes: On this occasion, Bodhi was consumed multiple times through out the Ohio brews vs Michigan brews beer tasting at Brews Cafe(Granville, Ohio). With beers like Founders Breakfast Stout and Bells Expedition Stout many beers can get lost on the palate and become forgettable at best by nights end. Not Bodhi, not even close. Best beer of the night? yes. of the year? more than likely. But definitely the first and only keg to be completely emptied at this tasting and that's saying quite a bit about this amazing beer.
Edit. Inconsistencies are the only thing that have taken this brew down a notch, from 5 to 4.75. It;s never been bad or average but never has it been as good as it was at a particular beer festival.
Serving type: on-tap
