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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

look: 4 smell: 4.5 taste: 4.5 feel: 4.5 overall: 4.5 A-Pours a hazy orange amber color with a nice 1 finger head S- Floral hops hit the nose right away followed by some citrus notes and sweetness. Smells very crisp and clean. T- WOW the explosion of citrus and hops and sweetness balance so well. This beer is delightful M-Medium to light bodied. Great Carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing D-Overall i was flored by this beer. It has a boring label and boring name so wasnít exspecting anything from it. but this is prob. my favorite IPA right now. IT just has Great flavors that donít mask the hops but also the hops donít take over the great flavors they put in this beer. GIve this beer a try!

JulienHuxley (5525) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle. Orangey pour with a nice white head. Aroma of fresh, sticky, piney american hops. Standard and discreet malt profile. Flavor is bitter, some honey notes in it though, fresh hop bite. Not as dry and bitter as some of the great american IPAs in my experience, but a nice refreshing one nonetheless.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a slight haze. The nose shows noticeable, if somewhat less than super-aggressive hop aromas; citrus, wood, very slight pine. The palate shows a smooth bitterness up front, an underlying malt backbone in the mid-palate, and a fairly crisp, fairly dry, fairly bitter finish. Overall, perhaps note quite in the league of the best examples, but certainly well-made and executed.

Bottle shared by Paul at RBSG. Hazy orange with a small white head. Nose to toasty malt, butter, light citrus. Flavor is sweet, buttery, some pine and citrus. Meh.

Excellent IPA. Good citrus/pine aroma with a dry, light body. Very pleasant and a nice surprise from Columbus. Thanks to ineedbeer (reddit) for the bottle.
