4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Re-rate: 3rd timeís a charm! Got a growler from Save On this time. Perfect! I donít know what the fuck was going on Red Wine and Brew. This growler was actually filled 30 hours ago, and has beautiful lively carbonation to enhance the citrusy grapefruity hops and give it a nice assertive dry bitter finish to the mild fruity pineapple apricot sweetness. Fucking excellent beer. (from 3.6 to 4.4).
2nd attempt at a growler from Red Wine and Brew. They have issues. Bright gold with white ring. Would probably have a head if the beer hadnít been tortured so. Also, the carbo from the riling pour takes a while to rise, so probably no fresh or beaten to hell. Anyhow. Bright citrus grapefruit rind hop aroma. Medium pineapple mango fruity sweetness with citrusy bittersweet spicy finish that would probably be accented by a fine carbonation if a) the beer were fresh, or b) the beer had not been so poorly handled. I hope to try this again at a bar that knows what theyíre doing. Until then...

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
32 ounce growler from Blacklick Wine and Spirits. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about an inch off-white head that stays around for a while. Thereís also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (grapefruit, mango, lemon peel) and pine hops, along with some bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like citrusy (mango, grapefruit, oranges and orange peel) and piney hops, bready malt/grain, and a bit of floral hops too. Thereís a good lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink. It drinks like a lower ABV brew would. Hopefully CBC will get around to bottling Bodhi soon. I guess itís been in their plans for a while but hasnít happened quite yet. Definitely worth trying if you see this anywhere, itís always nice to have a local brewery who can make a great brew like Bodhi (and Columbus IPA too).

This is one of the most floral ipa's I've ever had. Golden colored, minimal lacing. Aroma and flavor is all floral, and wonderful at that. Super drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Growler from Heinenís. Gold color with small head and great thick lacing. Aroma has huge citrusy, piney nose that is so rich and fruity. Flavor has sweet, fruity hops, just a little bitterness and a smooth maltyness to finish it off. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, this is so smooth and easy to drink. So good.
8-18-13: (7)(3)(8)(4)(1 this several times at festivals but had it on tap for a true tasting and it was just as good. Bright gold color with small white head and little lacing. Flavor and aroma are full of sweet citrusy hops with a light bitter grapefruit. Smooth for the high alcohol, medium bodied, crisp, and easy to drink. Really good all around.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden yellow-orange with a thick white head. Aroma of grassy hops, pot, caramel malt. Flavor initially is sweet and sticky malt with grassy and garlicky hops. Good flavor and hop base but a bit sweet/sticky. I guess not bad for a IIPA.

Great beer the Simcoe hops really shine through with aroma. For 90+ IBUs the beer extremely aromatic. Nice golden color and a smooth finish. Never a hint of the 8.5% alcohol content, this is a strong yet easy drinking beer. Great choice if you are in Ohio.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler received in trade from Bencooper27, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a cloudy light golden color with a decent head and lice retention and lace. Aromas of citrus, pine, resin, garlic and a heavy dose of caramel and bready sweetness. The flavor follows the aroma but ends up a bit too much on the sweet malty side for my liking. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resiny mouthfeel. Nice enough IPA but seemed a bit sweet for a dipa imho.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy gold. Lighter than I expected. Despite having this after the lower abv Fat Head Head Hunter, this is the milder beer. Similar aroma, but sweeter and less harsh bitterness.
