From tap. This beer tastes even better as the 2007 version. Dark golden color. Grapefruit and oily hops in the aroma. Oily earthy hop flavor with grapefruit. Dry earthy bitter aftertaste. Impressive!

Bottle fron Canals. This is a pretty good IPA. Nice citrus hoppy aroma with a bit of hop and pine taste and a carmel malt dry hop finish. Well done.

Rating #13from the european beer festival 2008.
Its amber with a light white head. Flowery aroma with some fruity notes. Not too powerfull and neither is the flavor (maybe its just my tastebuds gone numb) medium bitterflavor and feels abit disappointing comepared to everything else i had from this brewery.

Pours a deep amber, with a middle head. Good, hoppy scent. Taste is hops balanced with some spice. Clove? Real quality here, not often that you find an IPA balanced with spice over malt. A bit dry, good palate, good aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange color with a compact medium sized soapy white head with good sheets of lace. Aroma is intense pungent hops, immediately identifiable as Columbus (or Summit). Reminds me of Green Flash Imperial IPA. Armpit, onion, garlic, earthy, floral, perfume-like. Flavor is similar. Bitterness is medium. Columbus has such a unique and strong presence it is really dank and body odor-esque it’s hard for me to look around it. It kind of overshadows everything else. While this isn’t bad it certainly isn’t one of my favorites in the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Good caramelly hop aroma. Clear amber colour. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is teaish, actually a bit watery. OK bitterness. Not extraordinary, but quite drinkable.
