Tasted on tap at the brewery. Orange in color with thin white head. Aroma is pine and orange citrus. Taste is citrus bitter hops with some pine at the finish. Very smooth and well balanced. Good body, really sits on palate. I have it several times and continues to be one of my favorite imperial IPAs.

On tap at Roziís in Lakewood. Pour is medium straw in color, clear, with a fluffy thick white head. Aromas of resinous hops and pine. Taste is more dank resins and piney-citrusy hops. Finishes bitter but has a sweet balance that sneaks in there. I have had this many times and it seems to get better. Really a must try if you love hops. Ohio is on the charts with our IPAs.

10oz on tap at House Beer in Columbus. Totally hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker sheets of lace. Fantastic big hoppy assertive aroma up front. Good grapefruity piney hop. Lightly peppery. Hint of caramel malt. Bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet. Minimal hint of alcohol. Pretty awesome, satisfying DIPA.

Fresh growler, less than a week old. Been ~3 years since I tried this one! Fluffy white head & lace sit atop the handsome golden body.
Huge aroma of fresh, juicy, somewhat earthy hops and malt. Dat dankness. More bitter than expected on the palate, yet the hefty malt base rounds things out. A touch too bitter for my preference, but damn, this is an impressively-brewed DIPA. Dig.

Growler thanks to Brian. Pours a cloudy orange with thick creamy off white head that lasts. The aroma is tropical fruit hop, hemp, pine. Medium mouthfeel with juicy hop, nice lingering bitter finish. Very solid.

32oz growler in a teku. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of strong citrusy and fruity and floral and resinous hops and some pale and light caramel malts to balance the hops. Flavor dominated by the strong fruity and citrusy hops. Average texture. An incredible double IPA.

On tap at Columbus Brewing Company. Itís a very hazy pale color, almost as pale as a Hoegaarden. Creamy white head with good lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, malt and floral hops. Thereís a flavor explosion of pine and bitter citrus, but itís not over the top. Sweet malt, but not too sweet. Slight herbal tones and then a dry finish. Creamy mouthfeel with a clean finish. Delicious. This is one of the best IPAs Iíve ever had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear yellow golden pour with a thin white head and light sticky lacing ... Aroma of citrusy rindy orange and grapefruit very intense with tropical fruit qualities as well great nose on this beer... Taste is of resiny, orange rinds, grapefruity hops, lightly herbal hops with a nice oily mouthfeel and a malty backbone with a honey like qualities and a bitter hop bite ... Has a nice oily bitter hop bite in the finish with a lingering herbal rindy hop ... Definitely a quality dbl IPA and worth the hype

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Damn good, as always. Shared by Josh Brewer @ OU inn. Thanks bruh. Smells super bitter, astringent, piney, earthy. Dank. Looks clear yellow, with a little disc of foam on top. tastes dense with goodass balance between sweetness and bitterness. Almost a tartness to it, but it all works very well. Mouthfeel is thinnish with a slickness to it, too. very drinkable, but perhaps a little insubstantial on the palate. tasty stuff! Glad to get to actually sit down and rate this one!
