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.

Truly thrilled to try what I believe is Columbus's best DIPA.

Yellow-orange color with slight haze.

Fantastic citrusy, floral aroma with huge hop punch. Grapefruit, pine..everything I want in a great double IPA.

It is truly exceptional how this very hoppy beer does not become overwhelmed with hops..the malt that is present is well-noted as well. That being said, the malt does not get to a sticky-sweet level, and the finish is somewhat dry.

While the brewers have refined this beer and they feel it can still be improved, I must admit to me this beer is pretty close to the epitome of what I want in a West Coast style DIPA..hats off to the CBC crew for creating a superior beer in all regards.

a huge thanks to mark for the growler of this one. this trade kinda fell into my lap and i really could not say no. opened last night to keep it fresh i really devoured this one!

golden amber with wonderful clarity, three inches of white foam quickly develops on the top of the beer. Settles slowly, but surely into a sticky, glass coating mess that lets you know you are dealing with a monster.

Such crisp, ripe citrus aroma, this may be hands down the best smelling double IPA I have ever run across, it really is just that good. Oranges and heaps of sugary tangerine goodness are just oozing out of this one, Simply spellbinding as it tugs you in and will not let go, not for a moment. Then you manage to make it past the cloud of citrus and into the first sip, and then its over. First off this is over nine and a half percent and drinks like its five. Amazingly hidden alcohol. The smoothness of the profile as the hops are seemlessly blended to the point you get the full brunt of the orange and pineapple flavor but your palate is not torn apart. Remarkable beer. Super dry finish leaves you thirsty, begging for more, wandering around outside looking for that growler to get another taste before its gone,

One of the best beers out there right now period.

thanks, seth! 64oz growler into imperial pint glass.

A- Way paler then the single IPA from Columbus, this one is bright and light gold. Nice 2-finger snow-white head. Great streaky lacing.

S- Pineapple, ripe grapefruit, very intense. A buttload of pineapple.

T- Big hot assault, very bitter with the strong grapefruit pith coming through. Mango and pineapple, as well as some new-growth pine. Very bitter. Dries out and finishes nicely. Has 'west coast' written all over it.

M- Great carbonation, mouthfeel, ample body, great drying finish. Highly drinkable.

O- High hopes were met and then some. Columbus Brewing Company is putting out some of the best IPAs in the US, no question. A must for any hop-head.

Glad to try this before it runs out. Growler sampled on the date it was filled.

Hazy, burnt yellow-orange color. On the pale side for a DIPA. This beer has a summery look to it.

Huge citrusy, floral aroma. Tropical fruit, a bit of pine. This mix of hops is reminiscent of Columbus IPA, just stronger. Mouthwatering would be a good way to describe it.

Taste is big on hops. Tangy grapefruit leads into a mild sweetness, some cherry and mango notes, and ends with a nice piney hop bite. Great hop:malt balance in this one. Malt sweetness does make a brief appearance, but the hops dominate.

Medium bodied. Slick with a dry finish. Super easy drinking.

Overall a great DIPA. The aroma pulls you in and the taste and smooth mouthfeel just make you want to keep drinking. If you like the CBC IPA, this is a beer you will enjoy.

Ahhh Bodhi reappears for the 2nd Round of Hop Odyssey. I didn’t have a chance to try this the first time around, so I’m pleased to see it.

Bodhi’s an interesting pale gold color. Much lighter than you’d ordinarily expect for a DIPA. One glance tells me this beast is very short on caramel malt. Works for me. Slightly off-white head covers it and stands just shy of a finger tall. It recedes rather quickly, and leaves a moderate web of sticky lace in its wake.

The nose is fantastic! I’m unsure of the exact hop profile, but citric and pine notes are abundant. Grapefruit, pineapple, and light mango are the most prevalent. I don’t know the exact hop profile, but Citra is definitely in the mix. In that respect, it is somewhat reminiscent of 12 Hops of Christmas. It smells sweet and perhaps a tad sugary. The malt base is sturdy, but subtle. I’m not getting any caramel malt at all. Maybe a little pale. Whatever it is, it gives the hops plenty of room to shine. Alcohol is blended well.

The flavor is easily on-par with the nose. It really does have an interesting, restrained malt profile. I suspect it is mostly pale. I’m not getting any overly sweet caramel notes, and I love that about it. It really enables the hops to take charge and deliver bold, tasty citric and pine flavors. Citrus grapefruit, mango, and pineapple flavors are strong and delicious. It is bitter, but isn’t palate wrecking by any stretch. Don’t get me wrong, the hops have an aggressive, intense impact, but it’s apparent in flavor rather than bitterness. Alcohol is masked extremely well and isn’t all that strong. Finishes with a ton of hop flavor and just a touch of bitterness.

Bodhi has a medium body that is definitely nice and smooth. Carbonation is dialed down nicely. It’s going down really easy. In terms of its abv, it’s definitely deceptive and inviting. Proceed with caution.

Several years ago, the first elephant born in the Columbus Zoo was named Bodhi. Bodhi was also synonymous with ‘nirvana’ according to ancient Buddhism. Irrespective of what prompted the name here, it is a tremendous elephant of a beer. I would also buy into the argument that drinking it is close to nirvana. It really is excellent. Grab a growler and see for yourself.

A- Pours a hazy golden orange with a bright white head. Head has pretty solid retention, turning into a ring of bubbles around the edge and leaves some really nice layered lacing.

S- Getting crushed by tropical fruits, a touch of pine and maybe a bit of bready malts. I had to look really hard to find them.

D- Tons of tropical fruits and a lot more pine that I picked up in the nose. Has a nice bitter bite to it as well. I like this.

M- Medium in body and a good amount of carbonation.

O- Very nicely done. I'm really digging this. Tough choice to pick between this and their IPA.

Ah, yes. I finally get to try Bodhi. For a while I feared that this one would never make a reappearance. Thank God for the Hop Odyssey redux.

Growler poured into a St Bernardus wine-style glass. I'm going to experiment with glass shapes over the course of this growler to see which one I like the most for this beer.

Appearance
Despite the wide mouth on this glass the head and it's retention are very strong. I'm getting a couple full rings of pure white lace with a smattering of foam below them. The beer has a nice color, but for whatever reason it came as a surprise to me. Its a pretty pale gold with a modest haze about it. I think my surprise came from the fact that this is lighter in color than their regular IPA. Maybe that just means there will be less malt intrusion and a lighter malt character all around. We'll see here in a second.

Aroma
Lots of the tropical hoppy aromas that make CBC beers so fantastic. This one, however, brings a lot more pine than the others in Eric's portfolio. It smells like they are going after Pliny the Elder here, and are doing a good job at it. A bright pineapple and grapefruit rind combo carries equal weight to lots of fresh evergreen and pine sap. Malts are definitely sturdy here and of the lighter order. There might be some pilsner malt, but whatever it is is giving off lots of white bread and crackery dough aromas. There is even and intermittent honey sweetness. This is certainly bursting with hops, it smells green and fresh.

Taste
Pine is very strong and sees things through to the end. At about half palate grapefruit rind and lemon zest come out and provide their tropical nuances. Unlike many IIPAs, in my experience, the malts hold off until the finish, where they impart lots of white bread crust and unsalted cracker. There is a flash of sweet pineapple juice in the middle. The finish is formidably bitter with a long lingering pine resin flavor. Once the glass warms slightly a new level of citrus awakens. Things get very floral with notes of honeysuckle and candied orange. A similar effect is applied to the aroma as well.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, this ale finishes very, very dry. It gives it a very crisp, biting conclusion and keeps you sipping. The carbonation is more fluffy than sharp but it does grip the sides and tip of the tongue.

Overall
This is exactly what I think of when I think west coast imperial IPA. A truck load of hops with a pale malt base and copious notes of pine with citrus interspersed. People from all over are finally getting to know and enjoy CIPA, but its the small batch beers like this, Creeper and Uncle Rusty that I really wish could get spread around. Soon enough people will see that CBC isn't a one trick pony. Kudos guys, I can't wait to see whats next!

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

On tap at The Daily Growler in Upper Arlington, OH.

Pours a hazy yellow, with a one inch head and sheets of lacing down the glass.

Smells include citrus zest, tangy grapefruit, sweet and juicy orange, pineapple, apricot, and peach. Just outstanding smell, jumps out of the glass with fervor.

The taste is just incredible as well. Went down way too quick, despite all the flavor jam packed into this DIPA. Strong orange pineapple and grapefruit flavors, keeping it a little bit sweet, then the resinous pine slaps you across the face, makes it presence, and holds you in. Quite bitter, even more so as the beer warms up. The bitterness mixed with the juicy hop flavor is perfect, prototypical dry pine/citrus style IPA. Pretty dank flavor here, methinks.

Medium bodied, incredibly, there is no alcohol flavors. Drinks like a pale ale, hits you with flavor like a DIPA. Dry finish, warming, crisp mouthfeel.

Amazing stuff here.

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.

On draught at the Lincoln Tap House, Bodhi is hazy pale yellow with a thin white collar that leaves scattered, light lace. The pale, cloudy stillness is formidable.

Smell is skunky, dank hops, a little yeasty.

Taste is big tropical fruits, mango. Light resin. All hops, light bitterness, dig it!

Moutheel is a little weak, a bit flat, but with a sharp, mineral dryness.

Drinkability is solid, very much in my style, just could have used a bit more time in the bright tank.

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.

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy goldenrod appearance; the massive head leaves sheets of lacing behind

Smell: Grapefruit and tropical fruit dominant

Taste: Just a hint of malt and we are off to the tropics, with huge grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors; nicely bitter, but the citrus (perhaps a hint of orange, too) really dominates the flavor profile

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This has got to be one of the best DIPAs brewed today - the ratings are high but if this showed up in bottles or cans it would have a lot more visibility

The beer pours a cloudy orange amber with a whispy white head tha laces. The nose is a mellow sweet citrus with a touch of tangerine. Potent hops and malt sweetness dominate the hop profile and drink with a perfectly refined, floral/citrus hop profile that leaves a lingering green tea bitterness. Medium bodied, sweet, generously hopped and carbonated, and has a lingering grainy citrus. This is a highly drinkable dipa, which reminds me of rpm. Definitely hit the the brewery when your in town.

5 words to describe it: Hazy, Citrus Peel, Resin, Floral, Creamsicle

Paired it with: n/a

Should have paired it with: Pulled pork tacos, Eggs Benedict

Drink it if you like: Characteristics of a wheat beer with a major hop and booze punch; Tequila Sunrises, Tripels

A few other thoughts: This guy was excellent because it packed a major hop punch, but was lighter bodied than a lot of the IPAs and DIPAs I have been drinking. It also had a little more sweetness and creaminess than is usual for the style, and masked its relatively high ABV (8%) well.

A - Pours an incredibly hazy golden orange/yellow color with a small, 1 finger, off-white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing.

S - Big wallops of orange, grapefruit, mango, and even a touch of pine with a bready malt base.

T - An in-your-face amount of hops present. Incredibly citrusy, but also has touches of flowery hops, piney, and resin. Finishes with bitter citrus bite. Incredibly good.

M - Very full, excellent amount of carbonation present. Holds the ABV well.

Overall - A superb DIPA. Obviously shows that this beer is worth the hype it's getting. Seriously a perfectly balanced DIPA, it actually reminds me of the excellent balance of a PtE.

On tap at CBC first as part of a flight, then in a tulip. Because as it turns out, a 2-3 oz pour of this baby is not enough.

Pour isn't terribly impressive, especially when measured next to IPA and Super Flesh H.O.P in the flight. A cloudy, flattish pour, evocative of chicken broth. Nice lacing though. Amusingly looks like the fat that rises to the top of broth.

Smell. Picking up on American hops, and a palette of citrus and tropical fruits. Something special happening here.

Taste is just a carpet bombing of hops (simcoe?) and fruity notes, orange, mango, grapefruit, pineapple(?) all vying for attention. There is not a single false or unpleasant to this beer. The deeper I get in the glass, the better it gets.

Tremendous, medium body. Again, everything is right with the consistency of Bodhi.

Overall, a must try. If you don't like it you don't like beer, or at least you don't know hoppy beer . As of this writing, this is the #15 DIPA on BA. And look at who's ahead of Bodhi. Nothing but legendary beers and revered breweries. In this instance, CBC has earned it's place among the greats.

On tap at Brew's Cafe

Pours a frothy, hazy burnt orange with a pillowy white cream head. Above average lacing for an imperial IPA. First smell...hmm...nirvana? Not exactly, but the closest experience I've had in the world of beers. Faint malt sweetness mingles with a whirlwind of citrus(grapefruit and clementine) and tropical(light mango with pear) flavors followed by a hop slap to the dome. Pure dankness. The intensity of the hops never lets up, but at no point do you feel overwhelmed(or underwhelmed.) Medium-full mouthfeel has just enough carbonation to please the tongue while allowing the subtle dryness to leave you wanting another sip. and another sip.

Notes: On this occasion, Bodhi was consumed multiple times through out the Ohio brews vs Michigan brews beer tasting at Brews Cafe(Granville, Ohio). With beers like Founders Breakfast Stout and Bells Expedition Stout many beers can get lost on the palate and become forgettable at best by nights end. Not Bodhi, not even close. Best beer of the night? yes. of the year? more than likely. But definitely the first and only keg to be completely emptied at this tasting and that's saying quite a bit about this amazing beer.

Edit. Inconsistencies are the only thing that have taken this brew down a notch, from 5 to 4.75. It;s never been bad or average but never has it been as good as it was at a particular beer festival.

On tap, served into a pint glass

A: 2 fingers of white pillowy head, hazy light gold color, lots of lacing down the glass

S: The most tropical smelling IPA I've experienced yet. Tons of pineapple, mango, and citrus aroma. Absolutely top notch.

T: Follows the aroma, a big punch of tropical fruit flavors followed by a bit of caramel and biscuit malt, a little bit sweet. This is incredibly balanced and flavorful IPA.

M: Medium body, very smooth, delicate carbonation and nice drying finish.

O: Hands down the best IPA I've had to date. This truly is a world class beer and I can't imagine other IPAs being leaps and bounds better than this. It'll be great to see Columbus get this into bottles so we can see how it stacks up against the heavy hitters of the IPA world.

On-tap at Columbus Brewing Company, Columbus, OH

A: The beer is very hazy straw yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin yet dense finger high head that has excellent retention properties.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of grapefruit and orange citrus in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of flavors of grapefruit and orange citrus intermixed with a light to moderate amount of bitterness. The bitterness becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied, a little crisp and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The mouthfeel of this beer is incredibly smooth for an IPA. While it’s quite drinkable (because there are no traces of alcohol in the taste and it’s not overly bitter) it is a beer that has an interesting flavor that makes you want to sip and savor.

A -pours a hazy orange with one finger of white head. Decent retention with great lacing.

S - Big citrus hop nose with some pine as well. Grapefruit and some tangerine. Slight biscuit malt presence. Very good.

T - This tastes fantastic. The hop presence is big, but not harsh or abrasive. Very little malt, but just enough to give a little body. Similar to smell there is mostly a citrus hop presence, but I get some pine and grass as well. A bit resinous. Fantastic.

M - Medium mouthfeel with a nice bitterness throughout. Lingering bitterness, but very pleasant, not overwhelming or insanely dry.

O - This is one of the best DIPAs I've had. Definitely a hop showcase, but also somehow restrained in a really excellent way. Wish this was available near me.

Big Hop bite with a nice punch on the first sip. Dry pine and citrus follow through the overall body. a very satisfying finish. Clean, hoppy mouthfeel.
