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.

Tap at Brickhouse. Unfiltered, thick, yeasty, dulled tan body. Big, steady, creamy, off-white head. Yeasty and creamy on the palate, almost has a nitro feel...maybe the end of the keg. Really nice hop feel, but not as pronounced as some of its TG brethren. Earthy, grassy, cool, crisp hop feel approaching green onion, garlic. Good. Impressive Columbus display.

On tap at the tasting room. Cloudy yellow, dense white head. Very creamy body, good malt flavors with a slight bitter finish. Good.

On tap in Decorah for the graduation dinner - when in Rome ... Pours a yellowish orange with a bit of a white head. Not much carbonation or lacing, although swirling created some temporarily. Aroma has heavy citrus, pine and resin. Eventually down the glass some caramel and a bit of honey showed up. Very hop forward. Taste is all bitter fruits; grapefruit, orange zest, lemons. Very bitter throughout, with bits of tangy pine muscling through occasionally. Very resinous. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes extremely bitter. This is Ruination territory, but missing the depth. Shrug? Love the APAs of theirs, this was not a great intro to the TG IPA line.

Hazy, dirty orange. Aroma bitter, earthy, caramel, some floral. Taste is similar, very nice balance. Hoppy yet sweet.

On tap at Craftsman, pours a hazy yellow with a thin head, the aroma has a good amount of tropical fruit and melon, but it doesnít jump out at you like their other ipas, the flavor is earthy at first and finishes with some dank hops, good mouthfeel, just ok.

Crushed with Jakebra
Pours a light pale golden with a big head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is big on melon & citrus. Itís plenty dank & has some alcohol forward notes.

The flavor is hop forward with some grapefruit like bitterness. Itís got plenty of melon character & a touch of caramel. Itís got a little more booze than I think works in the mix but otherwise I think itís just fine.

pretty chill

From a growler, bottled in Hudson. A fine looking ipa, dark and opaque gold color with a thick head. Crisp and bitter citrus hops. Dry malt flavor with the bitter hops. Good.

On tap at Coopers in Madison. Dark orange juice looking body. Sharp pungent smell. Dank earthy taste. Very bitter. In a good way, it tastes like Iíd imagine a fresh hop picked right off the vine with some dirt still on it would.
