Flaske: Orangerød diset med et flot skumhoved. Duft af Lagunitas skulle jeg til at sige, men det er det jo ikke. Smagen sidder i skabet for en IPA. Lækker øl.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a white head. Sweet malty base, with some fruity citric hops and moderate bitterness. Balanced and drinkable, but nothing too special.

bomber pours orange amber, thin off white head whom’s lacing completely covers my cheater pint. Nose is subtle of citrus, some malt. Taste begins with light gentle malt sweetness. This is lightly washed away by some bitterness, oranges, tangerine. body is light to medium. Overall all pretty decent, a nice change of pace from some of the normal face melting bitter bombs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bold and zingy IPA with snappy citrus and a grassy bitterness. More malt-forward (and sticky) than I like, but it did help to balance out the aggressive hops.

22 oz bomber with no sell by date, which bums me out. i do not understand why a brewer of an IPA this good would not put a bottled on or a sell by date. This is especially important because I thought the bomber I had was past its prime. I still noticed a nice clear citrusy hop flavor, but there is a slightly "off" earthy, cheesy note that I believe indicates the bottle sat around too long. I would love to travel to the brewery and have this on tap. I will re-rate if i can.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great IPA! IPA’s are so prevalent now it’s like they are just regular beer now. This one is pretty awesome. Uber clear, beautifully bright, ruddy copper pour. Gigantic seafoam head with exquisite lacing. Fresh tangerines and caramel malt are dominant in the aroma. Nice nuances of grapefruit and lime zest also show up in the appropriately bitter flavor. Definitely hops forward, but skillfully balanced by plenty of malty goodness. Medium body, great carb, superb mouthfeel, and a wonderfully dry finish. I am reminded of a honey-glazed orange/grapefruit upside-down cake garnished with lime leaves. Fantastic IPA.

This beer is enjoyable , I have not found one that I can actually say I did not like , you have to be open to all flavors and there distinction. This beer is citrusy and moderately hoppy it does not punch you in the face with that intense hop flavor but you certainly know its there. Its very bubbly in the front then resin pops thru the middle with a little light bitter in the back end kind of like chewing on grapefruit rind , not bad for those of us who enjoy a little bitter.

Pretty hoppy and, as the description says, high on the citrus scale. Head vanished quickly and carbonation felt a little light. Still tasted great. Pretty hoppy, dry finish. Nice beer that showcases the Columbus hops.
