Served in a stemmed 12 ounce glass. Good bar-pour head. Leaves a blanket of lace with a distinct concentration of the level prior to the sip. Deep amber color. Crystal clear. Close to the most beautiful looking beer I've ever seen.

Mild aroma for a DIPA. Far more malty than I would expect with none of the in-your-face hop.

The taste is more true to form although the bitterness is just that--all bitter with no spice notes. Long aftertaste of astringent hop pellet flavor. Neutral body with an elevated carbonation.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Mellow Mushroom in Brandon. Served in a nonic pint glass.

A: Lighter copper in color. Appears nearly clear, though there is some chill haze. Forms a half-finger of white head with medium visible carbonation.

S: Disappointingly low amount of aroma for a DIPA - grassy, pine, and grapefruit rind hops with a bit of sweet bready malt is about it.

T: Grassy and herbal hops, some spicy/onion character as well. Bready malt backbone with only very mild caramel character. Hop bitterness with fading malt sweetness in the hang.

M: Medium body, modest alcohol presence for a DIPA, and good carbonation sensation.

O: Not particularly impressive. Since it was on tap, I have no way to know how old the keg was, but this really suffered from a lack of aroma, and the hop flavor profile was far from my favorite. Nothing truly offensive, but not one I'd seek out again.

On tap at the Falling Rock. Dark orange color, almost cloudy, just thick looking. Aroma was subtle, I expected a lot more hoppiness, maybe Columbus don;t have a strong aroma? Flavor was good, very dank hops, resinous, pine, greenery. I liked this quite a bit and would order again despite the weak aroma. I always love a good west coast IPA.
