COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA pours a slightly hazy, pale orange with a balanced malt flavor and finishes with a wonderful flavor and aroma only American hops can provide. This beer is served unfiltered to retain all the bouquet from the hops.

From notes. First reviewed 7/7/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip. Columbus IPA pours a golden orange caramel color, mostly transparent with a few yeast flecks. A full head of off-white head rests on top and retains nicely, leaving some lace down the side of the glass. The hop presence in the nose is impressive. Very dank. Some tropical fruits and a bit of citrus as well. Some soft caramel sweetness to start, but it really does not get in the way of the hops. Very dank, with grapefruit citrus, pine, and mango/pineapple/passion fruit tropical fruit adding some further hop flavor. Finishes wet, juicy, and bitter. This is a little bit grainy with a fairly light body and carbonation that seems to be compressed and held in check. I found this to be a little bit off the beaten path as far as IPA’s are concerned, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Shaker pint draft at the brewpub in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a haze orange amber, with a half inch off white head. The aroma is fresh citrus, softly sweet floral, and a light pine hoppiness. The taste is the citrus, the pine, and a nice toasted malt. All flavors nicely blended and vibrant. There is a touch of sweetness and resin near the back. The palate is medium bodied, nice active carbonation, and a dry mineral finish. Nice IPA, this was the first beer of a session and it hit the spot.

From the bottom of the keg on tap at vintage estate. Big IPA aroma. Looks like pale lager and not hazy as described. Creamy big head. Yes, big citrus ipa flavor. Flat, no co2. Flavor is fresh ipa impact. If you are into IPA, ignore my numbers, this stuff is terribly on style.

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
bottle from Gaswerkz Columbus, pour is a nice orange color as far as i could tell amidst all the lights bouncing off the mardi gras beads, nose is hoppy, but taste is well balanced.. almost malty finish which may be due to age, but still a very tasty IPA

Thanks to the chaps who let me try this one. You know who you are...Nose is full of fresh hops. Some grassy, citrusy, and pine-laden hops with some light fruity tones in the background. Spigot water and fresh outdoor aromas waft out of this brew. The taste is very similar with a slight caramel malt to help balance out the fresh, in your face hops that make this one so good. Balanced and an American hop lover’s dream.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
This IPA was great. Aromas held promise, giving off a pungent aroma that was floral and spicy. Hops were rich and bittersweet, while a near-perfect malt finish created the perfect balance.

Pours a nice deep copper, maybe closer to a very dark honey. A nice whit head leaves a great lacing all the way down. Very nice arom, tangerine, grapefruit,hop resin, a little apricote and pine. Bitter flavors, citrus rind, ripe fruit, grapefruit. Medium light body, fairly high carbonation, nice lingering bitterness.
