4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at pies and pints Worthington Ohio. Bodhi pours a brilliant golden apple juice color with a persistent head of small white bubbles. Nose is lush pine needles. Taste is full on pine hoppy happiness, but not overpoweringly so. Body is lively and smooth. Finish is a nice lingering pine hop sensation that resolves into good bitters. Excellent ipa.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 At long last. The Bodhi has manifested in a new form.
It pours a bright and vibrant gold with a stellar, lasting head.
I believe this brew is Citra-dominant, allegedly singularly-hopped with Citra. The nose doesn’t lie. At a distance, the nose is candied lemon and apple, pastel citrus, pineapple, meandering pine resin that seems to waft from heavy doses of Citra, young cherry, pear, just lovely fruit overtones. Gently sweet cereal malt hides beneath the tropical weight.
The first sip starts resinous, yet interrupted by a thick mango, grapefruit and pineapple, tangerine, floral bite. The impression of overwhelming bitterness arises but never comes to fruition. I’m always astounded at the piney/resinous quality Citra can provide. Crackery malt sits very far back in the darkest corners of your palate.
Medium-plus body, very present linger of pineapple, rind, and flowers. This should be the official flagship DIPA of Ohio.

Draft. Pine and citrus aromas. Soapy and dense on the palate. Bitter and sour, but also refreshing. Short finish.
