Fairly juicy with some hints of sweetness. Orange juice, orange peel, and some finishing dankness/ditchweed. The balance is in tact while the beer is cold. The finish adds some bitterness and a hint of alcohol closer to room temp.

The columbus hops are good. However given the yummyness that is some of the new hops have completely changed the game.
