look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler into a tulip
A: Pure, clear orange with a 1.5-finger head
S: Lots of hops- a mix of citrus, floral and pine along with sweet dried stone fruits and some caramel notes
T: I agree this is fairly sweet- caramel up front followed by tropical fruit and grapefruit rind
M: Medium to full-bodied, a bit sweet & bitter though fairly balanced given its 11% abv
O: I would prefer it a touch less sweet but overall this is a fantastic DIPA, well balanced and certainly worth a try

Had this at Whole Foods on tap, poured into a tulip glass.

A- More golden than orange, unexpectedly lighter than most DIPAS. Had about 2 fingers of head that hung on for a while.

S-Extremely fruity and sweet, hint of honey.

T- Powerful hops upfront, hint of grapefruit but the sweetness of pineapple carries the day, very smooth, nice mix of bitterness with a clean finish.

M- I'd call it medium bodied

O- A very good offering, one of my favorite DIPAs. Less bitter, and less grapefruit than Bodhi. I would give this one the nod slightly over Bodhi, would like to try them both side by side to see which one I would pick head to head.

32oz growler filled at Save-On Craft Beer in Mentor, OH for $4.99

Poured into a tulip. Pours a transparent golden with a small white head that leaves decent lacing and nice retention. Nice clarity with the color. The aromas have alot of burnt rubber going on. There's also a nice combination between it being citrus and tropical. The malts take a backseat in the nose, but come alive in the flavors. I'll start off by saying that this isn't some malt bomb though. The hops really shine. Strong bitterness followed by a subtle sweetness. I'm picking up a decent amount of pineapple. It's slightly spicy. Possibly some rye or black pepper in the mix. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied, but light and extremely smooth. There's a bit of an alcoholic note, but barely. It's really not hot or boozy at all. You might catch a subtle warmth, but it's subtle and enjoyable. The alcohol goes unnoticed. This is fun to drink and it's dangerously drinkable.

This is a nice "Triple IPA". It's similar to Green Flash Green Bullet. I only say that as a reference to what this beer is like. This might not be my favorite IPA/DIPA from Columbus, but this is no slouch at all. The craftsmanship is off the hook like all of Columbus' beers, but I personally would take a Bodhi over this all day. This is good though and definitely worth checking out if given the opportunity.
