Opened that bottle and lots of citrus grapefruit aromas poured out. Fabulous citrus taste and just the right bitterness. Lots going on on each sip and a wonderful finish. Bought 2 four packs. Excellent Ale!

Orange body with a hint of cloudiness and a sticky, soapy bone-white head. Aroma and flavor includes big citrus and huge grapefruit. Feel is medium bodied and slick, really drinkable. Really solid DIPA.

Great IIPA! Smooth yet just the right amount of bitterness to balance the malt backbone. Very consistent local Columbus Ohio brew.

Double IPA flavor and ABV that's drinks like a regular IPA. Very smooth and easy on the pallette with good aromas and great flavor. Wish we had it on shelves out here

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look: Crystal clear straw gold. Thick white head. Very active.

Smell: Bright clean citrus hops dominate the nose. Light floral hop notes. No malt present.

Taste: Grapefruit zest, tangerine, bitter floral hops, and deep green hop notes. The malt is light honey sweet. Bitter zesty finish.

Feel: Clean and quenching body. Moderate bitterness. Finish is dry. Light alcohol.

Overall: A clean classic American DIPA. Everything is here. Big hop, nice complimentary malt, and a subtle alcohol. A real gem you don't hear enough about. Excellent.
