Bodhi brewed by Columbus Brewing Company, with an ABV of 8.50% This American Imperial IPA pours out of a 12 oz bottle into a pint beer glass a nice golden amber color. There is also a nice white head on top of this brew with a nice amount of lacing. The lacing sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with hop bitterness, a slight citrus flavor, with earthy grains and malts. There is a lot going on in Bodhi. So far this is a nice inviting brew, now for the taste. It is rich and bold with flavors. You first pick up on the hop bitterness with citrus flavors. The body of Bodhi is a medium to heavy but not to heavy. It is really hard to pick up on the 8.50% ABV in this brew. It goes down this smooth, the citrus flavors are a nice touch to this brew. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. If you are a fan of IPA'S you should look this brew up. The mouth feel is Hoppy, Bold ,Rich, Clean , Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Bodhi a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Columbus Brewing Company, did a real nice job with this IPA.

Wonderful balance of malt and citrusy hops. Attractive on the eye with a golden color with white head that rescinds into nice lacing. Remarkable is the mouthfeel - super easy to drink and masking its DIPA qualities. Citrusy on the nose and palate. Wonderful beer.

A wonderful full flavor , earthy , multi-layered beer. Pours a Beautiful deep copper with a thick off white head. Mostly a deep earthy smell with some citrus , flower undertones . Fills the mouth with flavor but is still somewhat subtle at first taste and isn’t overwhelming . Keeps you curious for the next taste . A great beer

12oz bottle poured into shaker pint. Super fresh at about a week old.
Nose is citrus-ey and pine.
Taste is flowers, a tad sweet, almost pollen like. Maybe a bit of onions? Can't pinpoint it.
Great balance. I think that is why I'm enjoying this so much.

Bottled on 7/16/18

Pours a deep golden copper with a finger and a half of fluffy, off-white head; specky lacing continues to wall the glass, and a nice ring permeates the surface.

Aroma is of deep, heavy, almost mineral-like earthy elements with a touch of sweet citrus and light tropical tones; floral undertones, overripe peach, and dank, herbal hops.

Taste shows a greatly varied profile, beginning with a sudden burst of pine and peppermint that quickly retreats in favor of balanced malty biscuits; additionally, soft floral notes and citrus lead by clementine, orange peel, lemon, candied mango, and fresh grass.

Mouthfeel is juicy and holds moderate carbonation; reduces its heft beautifully as it goes down, and leaves an almost soothing, delicate stickiness in its wake.

Stellar stuff here. So much flavor in such an effortless drink; this is a beer that's relentless in its balance, and it's top-notch because of it.

Old school clear DIPA with a malt backbone. Hops seem subdued in this era of lupilin arms race.

L- poor as a slightly hazy golden orange color with a very thin, white head that just collects on the ring outside the glass. Has a little bit of carbonation.
S- smell is not very big. Probably mostly grapefruit rinds and some slight malt and Spice.
T- this one tastes amazing. Grapefruit and mango Citrus hop with definite garlic and onion backing. Finishes with a slight sweet candy mango that really finishes it off well. Just a slight Pine resin in the end as well that resinates up the nose.
O- Perfect Balance. No wonder this one's in the top 250.

Pours a clear deep gold/pale amber coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smells of biscuity malt with hoppy accents of citrus and light tropical fruit: grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and a hint of grass. Taste is a great balance of biscuity, lightly sweet malt and bright, hoppy, slightly zesty citrus and tropical fruit notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lime, mango and and papaya. There is a light resinous quality to this as well, with a hint of grass and pine. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some pine lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and medium/lively carbonation. This seems like somewhere inbetween an Old School and West Coast IPA, but in a really good way. Great balance of malts and hops, sweetness and bitterness. Not a hint of booze or bubble gum to this, which is impressive given the 8.5% ABV. This actually drinks surpringly easy.
