2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a amber color with a small white sheet of head. Aromas of some pretty decent tropical fruit. Smells sweet. Taste is kind of a gritty mash up of dirty water, earthy hops, some pond scum. Medium bitterness but with no real juicy hop character. Kind of bland tasting with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Finishes on a note of chemical abrasiveness and dirt. Pretty awkward.

Pours golden orange with a large white head that fades and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is slightly hoppy, some grapefruit. Taste is light bitterness, grapefruit, orange peel, not crazy heavy. Not bad.

Great IPA. Rarely would a Michigan fan call anything with Columbus on it great... But this is great. Good flavor and aroma of hops. Good pour with nice head and lacing.

Bottle: sunburst orange, unfiltered & opaque with a super foamy, eggshell colored head; chunky lacing left all around. Aroma has notes of red grapefruit, mild pineapple, light mango, bready yeast, earthy & leafy hops, & some back-end juiciness. Taste has huge notes of (mostly) grapefruit, also with a tropical essence, somewhat like a mango or tangerine. Light pineapple. Light ashy leaves, hop oils, & bitterness. Finish of bitter grapefruit pith & citrus peel. A touch of yeast & crystal malt sweetness hidden underneath.

Pour is an orangish hue with head that fades quickly. Nose of citrus fruits, tropical fruits, and hops. Taste follows the nose but is less sweet than expected. Good single IPA

Slightly hazy orange color. Aromas of solid piney and slightly citrus. Taste is crisp and hoppy. A little citrus some resins and pine followed by a little malt. Really a solid IPA especially for the price.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 In 12oz bottle. Beautiful aroma of orange. Hazy beer that leaves dense lacing. Flavor is big citrus hops that become more bitter as the beer warms. This is an excellent West Coasty IPA, one that deserves to be better known.
