COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 100% Columbus hops this double IPA is an absolute Columbus hop bomb! Its resinous hop character comes through with huge grapefruit zest and pine notes throughout the brew. The big juicy, fruity, citrus hops add a resinous and almost sticky hop presence in the body making the medium body from crystal malts seem even richer and fuller. This is a hop head’s treat! 8.8% ABV, 98 IBU Hops used: Columbus

Draft->mini tumbler. Copper/gold with decent off-white head. Strong hop presence, with the full compliment of citrus, floral, and pine. Resinous. Quite good.

jkwood04 (4676) - Connecticut, USA - APR 4, 2014
On tap in a pint glass. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral, citrusy, and some resinous hops, pale and caramel hops, and dough. Flavor the same with a strong hoppiness. Average texture. A pretty good beer, but the hops might not be strong enough.

Tap. Clear golden pour with a big pillowy white head. Floral and pine, some citrus, good bite but well balanced. Another great west coast DIPA.

tmoreau (2909) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served, showing a clear, amber color, with a nice layer of off white/light tan head foam, and curtainy lacing. The aroma was malty, citrusy, sweet fruit, and resin. The taste remained sweet, more resinous than the nose, smooth, but quite hoppy, adding rind-like, and citrusy bitterness. Alcohol was definitely present, but not boozy. Medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, the finish remained bitter, with equal hints of sweetness & dryness. Tasty, and well hopped enjoyment.

[ Tap ][ Notorious Burgers ][ 12oz ][ $6 ][ Orval Chalice ][ 3/21/14 ]
>> Chilean fire pour. Dust storm foam. Nose is sticky, dusty, definitely an old keg. Taste is dusty, bitter, papery. Can’t even drink it. Boo on this place.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 100th DIPA rate! On draft at The Top in Gainesville. Pours golden copper with no head (because the bartender filled to rim). Aroma of fresh pine and grapefruit hops, lemon zest, grass. Really nice. Flavor follows with a beautifully refreshing hop character: grapefruit, pine, grass, citrus peels. Delicate flavors alongside big bitterness and a malt backbone that stays in the background. One of the best new IPAs (to me) that I have had in a while. Medium bodied, resinous, with medium plus to high carbonation. Maybe my favorite from GF. Awesome brew.

A pretty good single hop Columbus IPA iwth all the expected notes and aromas and the typical lean malt body of a Green Flash IPA. Not too bitter. Nice stuff.
