3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5oz sample at the Brass Tap. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head, that leaves plenty of super thick lace. Big piney orange citrusy hop aroma, pretty resiny. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Some caramel malt aroma. Bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Good, big, hoppy assertive single-hop DIPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 1) Keg, The Pony, UES, 19/02/14. Clear deep orange with a narrow white lid. Aroma of orange cordial and bath foam lavender. Simplistic, slightly hot meaty malt and underlying orange liqueur burn flavour. Marzipan hints. Finally very bitter. Bath water and honey. Not for me.
2) "GF Hop Odyssey Columbus", keg, Amsterdam Ale House, UWS, 22/02/14. Another duplicate? Bastards. Need to get my shit together. Frozen peach, hint of pine nose. Booze taking over anodyne peach, floral, liquorice attempts. No flavour after the Harpoon (Long Thaw); hints of liver and almond (?!). Headless deep bronze freckling with lace. Improves as it warms but still pretty bland. Lime Fruit Pastille hints. Too cold and lacking in personality at 8.8.

On tap. Clear golden orange pour, with a white head and some lacing. Grapefruit, fresh hops, mild tropical fruit flavor, pine, light caramel, and bread. Overall pretty dry, drinkable DIPA. Not too over the top.

A beautiful double single hop IPA. Served in a snifter glass so abundant aroma. Flavor was nicely balanced with malt and bitterness. Nice deep golden color. An excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in tulip: Pours clear amber with a one finger white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, grapefruit, and a little piney. Taste is very dry, citrus fruits, and the pine is prevalent at the back end. Medium body, slightly harsh on the back end. Still, a very nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for a West Coast DIPA; a transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells of juicy Columbus hops with a lightly sweet pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.
