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

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. 636313

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.

Tap at Green Flash. Pours a clear and vibrant orange. Aroma is strong Columbus hops-plenty of grapefruit and pine. Taste is more pine, sticky and resiny.

jflopsu (683) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours a cloudy rust orange with white head. Has a floral hop aroma with some citrus. Taste is dry with citrus, floral hops, and pine. A sweet and bitter aftertaste.

bellco33 (397) - 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.

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.

The aroma is caramel, citrus. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is caramel, citrus, peach. The finish is grapefruit. Medium in body. Nice.
