3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a clear orange/amber color with a big white head and some sticky lacing.
S: The nose is rather nice. Lots of citrus notes featuring orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. A light grass note and plenty of pine and floral hop aromas. Just a little bit of bready malts.
T: Tastes just as citrusy as it smells. Nice fresh orange and grapefruit flavors with a little bit of tropical fruit, too. The requisite pine bitterness is there with only a touch of grass and bread.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Just my second beer from these guys, but both have been quite enjoyable.

Had on tap while in Columbus for a business trip...outstanding IPA with an impressive bouquet of hops. Citrus, pine, resin all the the nose and palate. nice bitter kick up front and and the finish. Body isnít huge, but there, and supports the hops well. Really good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Iíve had Columbus IPA many times before with it being a local favorite of mine, but surprisingly Iíve never reviewed it until now!
12 ounce bottle. Served in a Columbus Brewing Company pint glass, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head that stays around for a while. Thereís a lot of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is mostly citrusy hops (tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, mango), along with some piney hops and a bit of sweet malt. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, itís full of citrusy and pine hops, and thereís some light malt in there too. Thereís also a very long lasting bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with good carbonation. This is one of my favorite IPAís, and Iím glad this is made here in town and is readily available in the area. Definitely recommended.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle via trade with Tripphop (BA) - Pours a hazy amber color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is pine hops. Flavor is pine and herbal hops. At this point, the beers is fairly one dimensional. Which isnít a bad thing. Medium body. A nice IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Bottle from a trade. Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has some notes of light citrus and pine with some grapefruit and a hint of resin and sweet grains. Flavor begins with light fruit and citrus but becomes resinous with pine in the finish.
Bottle shared by Dan, thanks! Poured a hazy gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had notes of strong pine, some dankness with a bit of a backing sweet grain note. Flavor started similarly to the nose with a strong dank pine note with some resin but the flavor kind of dies off in to a weaker finish that left a bit to be desired.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Note: I got this beer on tap during Brew Week in Athens, Ohio.
This guy pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. With the orange color comes a citrus and hop aroma. It is medium bitter on taste and finish. Has a flat heavy feel on the palate. One of the more enjoyable IPAs Iíve had.
