4.36/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
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.

Also took home a 64oz growler from the CBC brewpub... ~$15/refill. Currently not available in bottles/cans.
If you live anywhere near Columbus and haven't tried this beer yet, you're missing out on one of if not the best brews in the midwest. This beer goes quickly though. If you're lucky enough to see it on tap, snatch it up. By comparison, it's smoother than the regular CBC IPA. Extremely drinkable.
