We heap the hops into each batch of our Thunderhead IPA. A golden nectar with a striking floral aroma, Thunderhead holds a harmonious balance between its bold hop bitterness and subtle malt backbone.

NIce spicy hop aroma. Good color. Good Hop Flavor. It seems a little light on body however for an IPA. Also it seemed a little over carbonated. A decent craft Amercian Style IPA

Pours as a muddy amber, not particularly clear in an IPA glass. Very little hop aroma. Tastes very bitter with a little bit of malt flavors to back it. It’s like Pyramid added all hops early in the boil. This beer was a complete miss and disappointing for pyramid.

Coppery amber color with very fine cream colored head. Aroma is floral and "beery." Flavor is caramelly with floral notes, followed by really strong herbal bitterness. Tastes good, but too long of a bitter finish for me.

I don’t like the twist off - actually I hate it. Medium, quickly dissipating head. The beer is noticeably less carbonated than most which is a nice change. Zesty, bitter hops reign throughout and the flavor lingers long after swallow. I picture hops in my head as I drink this one. India Pales are my favorite beers and this one doesn’t disappoint. I have others that I rate higher, but this is a nice IPA.

This isn’t one of my favorites thus far, but not bad at all. Has a nice golden color. Worth trying.

12oz bottle into pint glass. Copper (new penny) colored with nice head containing big bubbles. Aroma is full; citrus, pine, mint, follwed by malty sweetness. Very nice hope flavor, definitely American. Flavor contained everything listed above, no surprises. Finishes bitter, but not harsh. Very balanced beer, not particularly exciting, but I would drink this again.

dry finish, thin. Little notable head, light gold color. I don’t particular care for IPAs, especially when they’re anything but very cold...

Bottle. The Columbus hops give it a excellent bitterness that hits the back sides of my tongue leaving me want more. Great to sip and could easily down a 6 myself. Simple hops dance on my palate with a slight grapfruit flavor that isnt overwhelming at all. Hazy yellow color with no head. And at 6.7% ABV, makes for a nice IPA.
