Growler filled at Save-On Tobacco & Beverage in Mentor, Ohio -- $8.99

I've had this one numerous times in the past, so I figured it's time to give this one a review. Pours a light golden; extremely clear and transparent; beautiful fluffy eggshell white head with solid lacing and retention. The aromas are extremely tropical. Tons of mango and pineapple. There's also a good amount of grapefruit in the nose as well. It as a west-coast vibe to it. The flavors match the nose. It never becomes overwhelming or overly bitter. There's a great balance between the bitterness and sweetness. Malts take a backseat. Very sharp, clean and flavors. There's a subtle touch of pine needles going on. There's a subtle dash of garlic, but nothing to be concerened about for the garlic/onion hater. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's medium-bodied and feels light for a DIPA. The carbonation is there, but far from overboard. It's also extremely fluffy and creamy. The alcohol goes completely unnoticed. This is dangerously drinkable!

Bodhi has those GOOD characteristics that alot of hopheads look for. It's not aggressive and in your face. It's more balanced and it doesn't have much to complain about. It's always been one of my favorite "local" DIPAs and is worthy of the acclaim it receives. Highly recommended.

Poured into a Kane tulip from a growler acquired in a trade with bencooper27. Thanks again man!

A- It pours a very pale straw color with a decent sized white head that recedes somewhat quickly, leaving spotty, but distinct lacing.

S- The aroma is a straight grapefruit and tropical fruit bomb! Some other citrus comes through with fresh squeezed orange, tangerine, and loads of lemon verbena. A hint of caramel and pale malt balance it perfectly! Amazing nose!

T- The flavor matches the nose almost perfectly. Definitely more grassy/lemony flavors coming through, but this is balanced with sweet citrus and caramel malt. There is also a good bit of mango and pineapple, with a touch of passion fruit.

M- The mouthfeel has medium thickness, moderate carbonation, and goes down smooth. Another dangerously drinkable DIPA at 8%!

O- I am so happy to have had the opportunity to try this, and I will need to get this again! One of the best DIPAs I've had!!
