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

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.

bellco33 (262) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2014
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.

b3shine (5191) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
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.

dmac (3905) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at Thirsty Monk. Poured a clear orange body under an average foamy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Notes of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine and apricots. Medium body that finishes with such a good dose of bitterness that it lingerd to the point of a slight burn. Flavor of grains, toast, oranges, grapefruit and citrus rind. Good stuff.
