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

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at Thirsty Monk during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. Juicy home aroma, some orange and grapefruit especially. Medium sweet flavor with rich grapefruit, pine, light grass and bitter orange rind. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Resinous finish with more hefty grapefruit punch, some other pithy citrus. Very good.

[ 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.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
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 at Tapwerks. Pours a clear deep gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a combination of resinous pine and grapefruit with a touch of grain. Flavor starts with bitter earthy grapefruit and finishes with bitter pine and resin.

DrSilverworm (6975) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2014
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.
