This poured with a very light complexion of copper or Apple cider like hues. Nice carbonation that fed to a fluffy foam.
Big hop presence in the nose with pineapple, grapefruit, lemons and than a dank herbalness.
At first sip I taste honey and then Pow, I'm hit with intense pineapple. The pineapple is sweet and tangy before it melds with grapefruit, lemon and mango. Herbal, earthy tones are woven throughout the mid palate before it ends with a caramel malt sweetness.
The is drinks so smooth and easy it's like water but with a nice full carbonated heft.
A beer that lived up to its hype and fulfilled expectation.

With the embrace of fruit and lupulin that Columbus has with beer, there's really no surprise with the demonstrative IPA that puts both front and center with a host of tropical, citrus and orchard fruit to entice and intimidate the senses all at once.
Tangerine, nectarine, passion-fruit, mango and even papaya join with more obvious fruity hop flavors of pink grapefruit, orange and pineapple for an early taste and vibrant aroma that steps straight out of Hawaiian Punch. Wrapped in a candied cocoon, its honey, caramel and simple syrup sweetness gives an emboldened ripeness to the fruit's character.
While the sweetness holds on in the middle, its fruity center turns bitter, resinous and pithy. An underlying estery quality of peach and marmalade reinforces the hops with seamless taste. Citrus pulls ahead late while introducing earthy flavors of fresh-cut grass, chopped chive and an exotic herbal character likened to cannabis.
A late dissolve of sweetness finally allows the hops take full control, dragging the tastebuds into a sticky and resinous dryness that's also elevated by spicy alcohols that numb the tongue lightly with the peppery prickle of acetone.
