3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker pint draft at the brewery in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a yellow golden with a minimal off white head. The aroma is pineapple tropical fruit, general sweetness, and a touch of alcohol heat. The taste is the pineapple citrus, along with some bright orange fruit, a touch fruit stripe gum, some sweet and thin malt, then finishes with a light alcohol heat. This lacks a bit brightness. The palate is medium to light bodied, full active carbonation, a dry pineapple booze finish.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap at 101 Bottles of Beer on the Wall (Kent, Ohio). Aroma is pungent, light grassy, grapefruit. Color is that of light straw and slightly cloudy. Palate is very light, like a West Coast Style DIPA. First taste is very nice with mild bitterness in the forefront of the mouth, not a deep bitterness at all. Flavors of grapefruit, grass, and a nice pungency on the palate. An excellent DIPA from Columbus Ohio, and in my opinion, right up there with the likes of Founderís Double Trouble. A MUST try!

Great head and body. Hoppy aroma is dripping with deliciousness. Follows the nose, the taste does. Great finish

On tap at the CBC. Yellow color with one finger of a sticky head. Big fresh hop nose with grapefruit rind, pineapple and apricot. Really enticing nose. The flavors follow through with big sweet red grapefruit, pineapple, apple sauce and an almost honey sweetness. Noticable but not intrusive alcohol. Stiicky on the lips with a lingering hop burn on the tongue. Really nice hop head beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at CBC.
Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy bttersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.
My expectations where met.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the North Market Microbrew Festival on 09/12/2009 (happy 29th berfday to me). Cloudy orange pour with a thin off-white head. Orange and grapefruit hop aroma with a decent malt balance. Gotta believe Centennial is the dominant hop in this brew (good thing). Bitter orange flavor up front with a bit of sweet malt before a bitter grapefruit finish. They need to make this a regular offering, although their regular IPA is no slouch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Sample at the North Market Microbrew Festival on 09/12/2009. The beer is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with a moderately hoppy character and notes of pine, citrus and malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitterness left over. Straightforward and drinkable IIPA overall.
