If you don't like beer, you'll like this beer,If you like beer, you'll LOVE this beer!!!!
an OUTSTANDING work of art, looks like someone painted the hazy orangeish color all through the glass snifter itwas served in,thick & cloudy in appearance, could have been passed off as "beer Syrup"!
Smell kinda reminds you of a breakfast fruit buffet bar, Oranges,Grapefruit,Pineapples for the most part with a touch of flowery hops and booze noted!
Taste is quite a spiritual experience. Fruity Flavors rush all around your mouth while a sweet candied maltholds down the fort and the right touch of carbonation keeps it all happening followed up by an ever so faint kiss of wonderful alcohol!
Mouth is pretty awesome with a soft body smoothness that hangs around for the perfect amont of time, BEAUTIFUL!
Look outbecause yuo could drink a ton of these untill they CREEPED up on you and smacked your ass! What a well balanced and greatly crafted brew!

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.
