Single-hop IPA showcasing the Columbus hop.
Set sail with 1492! This unique single-hop IPA is brewed with all Columbus hops. Expect a bold, dank body, strong earthy aroma and a dry herbal bitterness that pack a mighty punch in the finish.

Bomber. Dated 5/27/15. Amroma is absolutely killer. Huge notes of orange and pineapple. Taste has roughly the same nots just nowhere near the intensity. Mild bitterness and sweetness. Clean finish. Very drinkable.

22 oz. bottle from John’s Grocery. Thanks again, Andy! First of two TG bombers consumed at Yellowstone National Park. Nice setting during an unseasonably hot early July. Pours a hazy gold color with a centimeter of incredibly long-lasting frothy white head that leaves a few thin bands of lace in the glass. Notes of resinous pine, florals, perfume, lemon peel, bready and pale and lightly sweet malts, and subtle tropical fruits, like melon. Has a late bitter bite. Not exactly perfectly balanced, but has both big malty and bitter hop components. Medium-bodied, with medium-plus frothy carbonation. Good beer, and different from their house character.

No retention and medium lacing. Smells of grapefruit, wheat and dirt. Smells of pineapple, grapefruit and lemon. Really bitter aftertaste.

Bottle thanks to Wrye. Shared with the wife on a random Friday night. Pours a cloudy orange with next to no head. Had to do an aggressive pour to get any bubbles. Aroma is hop pellets and candy corn. Taste is hay, grass, earthy notes but not a lot of big hops as the nose would lead you to believe. Nothing bad here but nothing outstanding.

I get some of what they say in their description. In aroma I mainly get cardboard. Flavor’s wet hops and some malt. Decent body. Not one of my favs from them.

650ml bottle. Golden pour. It has a nice spiciness and dankness to it, bitter with some pine. Good stuff.

Pours a cloudy/hazy orange gold color with white head. Dank citrus, pine, and some tropical fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice hop bite and plenty of bitterness, strong finish.

Bottle shared by my friend Eric at Capitol beer & tap Room. Pours cloudy golden with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor that is pretty bitter and earthy.
