On tal at Columbus Brewing this evening.

A - pours a daily hazy very light orange. Color is a little hard to pickup in the dark bar.

S - a flowery, tropical and pear nose. Juicy fruit gum. Earthy. Slightly grassy. As it warms, a slightly weird fruit nose appears that I can't put a finger on the profile.

T - tropical hop forward with a strong citrus finish. Tropical and pear, fruity, hops coat the touge hroughout. The bitterness is firm but not coarse enough to make you pay attention until half way through the glass. 100ibus? Maybe but air must be coming from later additions.

M - slightly slick - light bodied.

D - middle if the road. It was fairly easy to drink for the states 100ibus not not that enjoyable (compared to Bodhi) I can't wait to take a other drink.

Overall a really nice fresh hopped IPA - I think I did it a disservice by drinking it about a Bodhi. Going to pick up a growled next week when I get back into town. Awesome it's made with Ohio hops - go Ohio!!

32oz growler filled at Save-On Tobacco & Beverage in Mentor, Ohio

Poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden-yellow; small white head that fades and leaves nice retention and lacing. Smells like pineapple juice. Lots of orange with even some subtle hints of mint in the nose. Mango is in the mix. Some bready caramel notes, but they're very subtle. The flavors are very juicy and refreshing. They don't pop and aren't as crisp and bitter as I recall, but they're still enjoyable nonetheless. Tons of citrus. Lots of pineapple, which is what I really get alot of. Tons of pineapple. More mango and orange zest. Hints of pine. Malts are there. It's sweet, but very clean. The mouthfeel is great. It's soft on the palate; medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Extremely smooth and dangerously drinkable. Once again, this isn't really bitter and the flavors feel watered down at some moments, but it still manages to taste really good despite lacking bite.

This is like drinking fresh pineapple juice, literally. Very nice IPA from Columbus. It gets extra credit for being so smooth and drinkable. It doesn't have that sharp/crisp bitterness alot of wet-hop/fresh-hop IPAs have, but it's still very tasty. It's worth checking out if given the opportunity.

Growler obtained through a trade. I'm always on the lookout for draft IPAs, thanks for this opporutnity.

Beer is amber with a mild haze, nice off white head of small bubbles, moderate to low carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is nice, dank, sweet, hoppy.

Beer is a little grassy but overall a nice IPA, the biggest problem with this IPA is that this same brewery makes two far better IPAs already, this is clearly the step-child of the group. Beer is medium to light in body, moderate hop bitterness on the back end, a generally decent IPA but I doubt I'll have it again.

Only my 4th beer from Columbus! Glad they are becoming easier to find around Cleveland.

Pours a really nice, slightly hazy deep orange with a one finger off-white head.

The aroma has a lot of sweeter tropical and citrus notes along with fresh hop notes and a hint of malt.

Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. There is a good deal of sweet tropical fruit notes and citrus notes and there is a decent amount of malt in there too.

Finishes pretty dry, but this isn't particularly bitter. It's got a medium body with a smooth mouthfeel.

This is a really nice freshly hopped IPA, but it's not bitter enough and the hop notes could be a little more intense.

Shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt.

The beer is slightly hazy and appears light golden with a half inch of white head. The aroma offers hops, of course, with grass, fruity malts, rubber. The flavor is not as hop forward as I would like, and the beer is too sweet. Imbalanced with lingering malty sweetness. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Overall, this was just ok. Not in the same category as the Columbus IPA.
