Nice billowing off white foamy head that rests beneath a nice even ring of sticky lacing. Kind of a pale gold, crystal clear body.

Nose is a little malty up front with some sweet hoppy spiciness kicking in with a few more aromas, like a hint of corn, sweet tangerine and like a soapy lemony pine.

Taste is a really aggressive, immediately hot tangerine that takes on bitterness a few seconds in. This really is a pretty hot beer, which is only exasperated by the thick, menacing, syrup like body. Finish has a touch of sweetness on a bone dry tongue.

This is a fabulous triple IPA from Ohio. This beer looks delicious. The hop flavor comes through without being overly sweet and boozy. This was a fresh bottle, drank within a week of bottling.

12 oz bottle dated 3/6/17 poured into a tulip.

Pours a clear, straw color, with an inch of white head that faded fairly quickly, and left heavy lacing.

Aroma is sweet malts, and candy like tropical fruit.

Taste starts with sweet malts quickly followed by a wave of citrus and honey, with very little alcohol presence.

Feel is medium bodied, and extremely drinkable for its ABV.

Overall a great DIPA, that hides it ABV very well. I would never turn this down, but the sweetness is very prominent, and a bit much for something I would drink regularly.

Mundane and average. I don't get the hype with this, bodhi, and most anything else that columbus brews.
