Went to Columbus and got a fresh growler of this. Pours a golden orange with good sized head that leaves plenty of sticky lace. Nose is quite dank with some citrus, but is not nearly as big as you'd expect from such a highly rated beer. Taste is somewhat malty, with some sweetness, along with some solid hop flavor and balancing bitterness. Well rounded and doesn't try to just be a bitter hop bomb. Overall, very good, but would have liked to see the hops pop more on the nose.

Thanks to nollie77 for this extra, knocking a long-time beer off my wants list. That’s old school trading there. 12 oz. bottle all to myself.

The pour looks IPA light, sunshine yellow. Smells like citrus & oranges & rock sugar.

Bodhi - I seek to understand the true nature of this beer (sans all the unnecessary suffering). This is a thick IIPA enough residual sugar to make me twitch. Even more. Rock sugar, raw sugar, pour some sugar on me (which might be the worst song ever conceived), before I get to something that might resemble an IPA. When the hops finally show, they’re dank, resinous, herbal, with mild bitterness & full o’ scallions. Don’t kiss a girl after imbibing this and/or brushing your teeth. One of these is plenty.

WFT? Columbus IPA is wonderful & I’ve been looking forward to this one, but I feel like I just listened to the fourth Eve 6 album. Mediocre & a big letdown from expectations.

I'm going to make this short and sweet. Best DIPA I've ever had. If you don't try it, you're truly missing out. 5/5
