Had this beer on tap at the Columbus Microbrew Festival. Pours a cloudy copper color and taste of hops like a typical IPA. This is a solid IPA.

On tap at the Columbus Microbrew Festival. Nice hazy copper pour with descent head. Really hoppy, almost overly so (and I love Hops) without much of a malt character to balance the hops. nice beer for a hop head though. Smooth meidum body with right amount of carbonation. Overall: nice, try it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Excuse me while I gush. Iím still talking about this beer. Sharp, spongy, gooey, dank, damp, herbal, green, wet, damp, Iím running out of words. Smells like a mash of fresh cut lawn clippings, cannabis and mint leaves. The taste HOLY HELL itís the ickiest of the sticky, itís insanely bitter, biting and drying, itís coarse... no shyness at all, just a full force assault of everything hops should be, supercharged bitterness and harshness "balanced" by a chewy, dank, resinous quality. My senses were somewhat "amplified" at the time I drank this, for the record, so that probably had a lot to do with it, but I donít care, because this beer fucking rocks.

Dank, stanky, herbacious monster. Drippingly resinous. Intensely tangerine (suggestion of Summit by Jay!). Not the maltiest of IPAs by any means, this is hop city. Super fruity.

Growler, courtesy of Schroppfy. Thanks, Michael! Pours a slightly hazy, orange-red color; fluffy light-tan head with excellent retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Pleasant amounts of soft earthy bitterness in the aroma; biscuity and earthy malts behind. Medium-to-full: sticky earthy and citrus malts upfront; chewy, slightly viscous malt core; shows its English, earthy character pretty well, nothing harsh or overly bitter; not quite balanced, but heavy on both sides. Lengthy finish, showing earthy and mineral bitterness, earthy malts, and plenty of dry bitterness.

On draught at the Weasel Boy taproom. This beer is a bright copper-orange color with a medium thin bone white head that has decent retention. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and pine. Medium-bodied and moderately bitter with a piney hops character, with touches of malt and citrus. The finish is fruity and hoppy with a lingering hops aftertaste. Pretty enjoyable overall.
