Received a single, twelve ounce bottle as a part of a trade almost a year ago. Looking through top-rated beers, and realized that I forgot to review. I did not trade for this, it was included as a bonus-brew. Not distributed to MA. Pleasantly surprised, very nice brew.

L: Dark gold color with a good amount of off -white head. The lacing is crazy on this thing, it clings to the glass for days.
S: Getting a ton of citrus and tropical fruit scents, followed by a nice hoppy pine scent.
T: Tons of citrus in the flavor and also some pine notes.
F: Medium-bodied with a good carb and a nice dry finish.
O: This one does not disappoint, super solid DIPA.

Bodhi is only my second of the Top 10 rated IIPAs. I am neither a fan of the style, nor the hype around it.
Some of that explains my low rating... and my tendency to rate extreme beers not relative to their style but relative to what I prefer (which is not extreme.)

But Bodhi starts fine, a good-looking gold and a really aromatic, hoppy/fruity/malty melange. But the bitterness caught my buds by surprise and wouldn't let go (50 IBU is usually above my pleasure threshold and I'm guessing Bodhi is 75+.)

Columbus' flagship, Bodhi is the first I've had from them. So I went on their website and saw Bodhi is a GABF award-winner. But, they seem otherwise to focus just on their beer and for that I give an OA hug.

Pours a deep amber and a reasonable head, decent lacing.

Smells very fruity, orange and peach. Booze not noticeable despite the hefty ABV.

Taste is dominated by fruit, mostly peach and citrus. Bitterness is moderate but only noticed after the fruit flavor.

Feel: Medium mouthfeel, carbonation is just right and a pleasant aftertaste.

Overall: An excellent beer. If you like fruity flavors this is an amazing beer, if you prefer a traditional grainy beer or super bitter IPA, this might not be what you are looking for, but I really enjoyed it being an occasional IPA drinker.
