A: Deep hazy yellow, golden hue.
S: Solid aromas of full on fruit to the face.
T: A plethora of big tropical hop presence of mango, mandarin, grapefruit, and pineapple. Chewy hop resin and biscuit malts.
M: So delicious you almost can't sit on the mouthfeel too long, but a decent carbonation that is smooth and satisfying.
O: If you haven't had this one, you really need to find a way to. A great Columbus beer that spoils the locals a little, but the second it hits taps, this one flies away, so be quick on it.

Thanks so much to NW2285 for beering this forward! Pours a beautiful cloudy golden honey color with thick, two finger white head. Good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is the finest example of DIPA that I have ever experienced - redolent of grapefruit, pine, and just a touch of dank. Very hop forward on the nose. The taste does not disappoint, it is every bit the equal of the nose, if not superior. Grass, pine, and citrus come first, followed by a mild malt backbone that does an outstanding job of balancing out the mild bitter finish. This is the finest tasting DIPA I've ever had! It's balanced and smooth, the bitterness isn't overdone as in west coast IPAs. It has a medium body with good carbonation. Finishes dry. I can say without hesitation that this is the best DIPA I've had to date, and I'm pessimistic that I'll find one better. Please bottle this Columbus Brewing, please!

Growler pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Fantastic. Heavy tones of citrus and grapefruit, I thought I died and went to heaven. This is the beer that everyone should be making. Boy, you sure want us to write a lot. A good beer is a good beer. And it doesn't take me 200 characters to say that.

My awesome trading partner Colby sent me a growler randomly.

Pour is light orange with 2 fingers of head.

Smell is pure awesome grapefruit, pine, deep fruit.

Taste is just f!king fantastic. I'm really blown away here. Did not expect this amount of awesome when I cracked the growler. You have just a potpourri of tropical and citrus fruit with BAM amounts of hops. Minimal malt and extreme freshness. Something special here folks. I would drink this every day and twice on Tuesdays. A must have.

Overall this is something special. Keeps up with the best of them. I'm motoring through this growler like it's a glass of H20 after a 2 day survival mission in the Mohave desert. It's like Natalie Portman bred with Giselle.

Must try. May just be the best IIPA I've ever had.
