Thanks to drabmuh for this one.
Beer is a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. The smell bring a nice tropical fruit hops aroma to the table with a little bit of bready malt in the background, but I'm not overly impressed. Flavor follows the nose - it's got a nice citrus fruit hoppiness with a light malt with a slightly bitter finish. It's not really overwhelming in any one way like a great DIPA should be. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a solid DIPA that I would certainly drink regularly if available to me, but in my opinion it's VERY overrated. It just doesn't compare to a lot of the other DIPAs on the Top 100 list - too simple.

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.

4.36/5 rDev -3.1%

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.
