If I could give Bodhi a 6 for mouthfeel, especially for a DIPA style, I would. It's that amazing as far as mouthfeel goes.
Currently only on tap (growler, draft, etc.). Hasn't ever been bottled for wide release by the brewery. And arguably the best beer the Columbus Brewing Company has ever produced (and also, one of the best Ohio-produced beers).
Bodhi isn't your typical DIPA. Of course, it's supposed to be hoppy. What it *isn't* supposed to be is to look like a hefeweizen. Nor is it *supposed* to have a mouthfeel that is superior to Bud Light somehow. And it's still hopped out of the roof! This beer is world-class and in a class of its own.
Appearance: Very very cloudy and hazy orange. Fantastic head. Carbonation isn't top-notch, but with the flavors packed in this beer, you could drink it flat, and it'd still excel. This simply isn't what a DIPA is "supposed" to look like.
Smell: Balanced hops and touches of banana.
Taste: Finely balanced hops, a touch of banana and ester. Quite balanced all around. It has the hops you want and crave, and yet also brings other flavors to the table. Outstanding.
Mouthfeel: As previously noted, would give a 6 to this alone. A DIPA simply isn't supposed to be this smooth. Just isn't supposed to be.
My highest recommendation for those of you looking for a DIPA/IIPA.
Serving type: growler
