3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of a fourth flight of four out of nineteen 4 days test. Medium, bit irregular yellow head over very faintly hazed orange-amber beer. Citrussy, cakey malts and very grapey hops. Typical American IPA smell. Fruity (& slightly catty!) hops, resin, grapefruit. Long-lasting resiny bitterness; mounting rather than diminishing, turning a bit earthy (but always resiny/piney). Slick, (hop)oily MF, well-carbonated. Certainly medium bodied. Good, satisfying balance & flavour, which signals Columbus is usable as singly hopgift.
