Believe it or not I live in columbus. This is the first time I've had this. Excellent!!
It pours a murky yellow with a two finger head. The smell to the nose was heaven. Pine, grassy, citrus. At first taste all that I smelled came to the tongue and was delicious. It was not as bitter as I thought or hoped it would be. But it was delicious and very easy to drink. I absolutely recommend this one and being 15 minutes from the brewery I will never miss out on this.

An edit after the second glass...this stuff is amazing. It has it's own character and delicious hopiness that is hard to duplicate. My favorite so far has been fathead headhunter. This is a very close second for me.

Served on tap into a snifter glass.

A- Poured a clear golden color with bright white soapy head that left splashy lace.

S- Big tangerine, mandarin orange, orange marmalade, and peach notes. Lots of pungent hop character and sweetness in the aroma.

T- Lots of sweet and juicy tangerine, orange marmalade, peach, and tropical fruit notes. Pretty bug pungent hop presence and moderate bitterness.

M- Lots of warming, light burn, full bodied, a little sticky, and dry finish.

O- Reminds me a lot of Boneyard's Hop Venom DIPA, a really big IPA with tons of sweetness and hop character. For 8% ABV, the alcohol is definitely present and borders on a little boozy.

Thanks to Alex through Eric for this one! Poured into Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a copper orange/gold color, frothy cream-colored head, sticky lacing, thick cap.

S - Citrus, orange peel, huge floral hoppy bitter note. Not as huge of a hop bomb as I was expecting, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Very mellow for a DIPA, which is nice for a change.

T - Pine citrus, hops, bitterness, perfume finish. Like the nose, very mellow and enjoyable. The pine/citrus is excellent and the perfume finish is unlike anything I can remember having.

M - Light to medium, frothy carbonation, oily finish.

O - Super easy to drink, even at 8%. Just goes down so easily for a DIPA and I had several pours. Would def have again, if offered.

Growler to Travel bottle....=)
8oz to GI Chalice

App- When I popped this one into my chalice it was a nice medium colored orange. Maybe a touch of gold intermixed with a lighter yellow center. A small bit of bubbles was there but didnt leave much cling. A bit flat from going growler to travel bottle to glass.

Smell- When I took of a whiff of this it did have a bit of flat malts behind it, but at the same time a good balance of some strong mango and other tropical fruits. A little bit of pine as well to round out the back.

Taste- A well rounded DIPA. Had a nice balance between the thicker malts and then a stronger fruit flavor than the nose suggested. A good hop bite but still a little flat from the travel. More malty than I wouldve though with still a nice pine..

Mouth- A fairly solid medium body and due to lack of bubbles a creamy medium carbonation level. A bit buttery feeling but thats okay. I get where they were going with this. Residual tropical fruits. A touch of pine as well.

Drink- I don't normally ask for travel bottles of DIPA's but trying to tick the top 250 calls for some skill and friends to help out. Thanks again Matt. Appreciate this tasty treat while away from home.
