Always grab some sixers of this when in OH visiting the in-laws. Noticed I never gave this a proper review. 12oz bottle into a goblet. The pour yields a dark honey-amber with a thick frothy bone-white head. Great retention, with spotty lace left behind. Pine, citrus, floral overtones. Nothing new here, but the aroma is so potent and fresh. Love it.
Medium carbonation gives this beer enough heft to hold up the flavors, but without any lasting astringency. The reason I love this beer so much is the perfect balance between the bitter hops and sweet malty backbone. I would say this even leans slightly to the sweet side, which isn’t a detriment to it at all. Grapefruit, musk melon, orange give this a nice fruity quality. The hops add just a touch of oily feel as well, and they don’t linger too long on the aftertaste. Just enough "burn" to satisfy the hop-head in me, but fleeting enough to keep me gulping this one. This is one of the most drinkable and approachable IPAs I have had, and it will be one I continually buy when in the area. Can’t wait until Christmas when I can get some more!

Tasted from draft. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is not as citrus as the aroma. I get more pine and earthy notes. Some citrus but a lot of pine. A mild malt sweet backbone but big time bitterness. Medium bodied. Overall an above average IPA. I like their Bodhi and Creeper much better.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brilliant amber colored liquid. Small white head that falls quickly. Little bit of lacing left behind. A sweaty, danky aroma of hops. A slight bit of a burnt rubber aroma. Could be a roasted nut. Taste is a bit of the rubber up front followed quickly by hops, a nutty malt, and a small bit of pine. Dry. Not bad.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
