Had a bottle at a beer dinner where Columbus was a guest. After an excellent, but milder ESB, this blew me away. My first thought was 'damn, this tastes like Heady Topper.' But it's not a clone, this IPA is a little drier and thinner in the body — more West Coast where Heady is rich and smooth. Anyways, it's giant floral grapefruit with pine and a biting bitter that's incredibly bright and blindingly fresh. A fantastic hop bomb if you can find it.

Oh, the famed Bodhi. It's funny when you finally get to these uber-hyped beers of a specific fame. The reality of the ride seems to usually be different than what it was built up in the mind.

Nice look to it; barely hazed gold. Flavor has full, sweet hops with some clear pine that isn't overly obnoxious or abrasive. Smooth is the word here. It's really amazing (and great!) that smooth IPAs and DIPAs are the new rage. So pleasant and easy to drink.
