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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Growler - Columbus X tasting
Rating #666. Thanks to Beervirgin for bringing this to the tasting. With a full growler it was not hard to get a nice pour and enjoy the experience. It is not the best IPA but it was very solid. I’d put it somewhere in the middle of the pack of ones that I have tried to date. It might be worth tracking down the other two releases to see how good the brewer actually is.
Aroma / Appearance - The amber colored body was the typical hue for an IPA. Freshly cut wood from Home Depot mixed with wheat and brown sugar. The nose was solid but tame.
Flavor / Palate - The hoppy first taste was a nice kickstart balanced by resin and hard candy. It was solid but not earth shattering which is typical for brewers just starting out. I’d drink this again at a brewpub. Hopefully Weasel Boy will be around for a while to come.

Shared by Beervirgin at C-bus 10. Not a great aroma at all. It was a bad mix of pine, and rotten apples I thought. Golden brown with a light head. Medium palate with nice carbonation. Nice full malt flavor up front with a good mix of hops. Definite hop backburn in the finish. Fix the aroma and I"m definitely back for more.

Shared at the Columbus Tasting 10. I am not a fan of IPA’s, but this brewer is doing a pretty decent job here I am told. Too hoppy for me.

C-Bus 10: Growler courtesy of beervirgin: Pours a hazy copper color with a tan head. Aroma, herbal and pale malts, some pine. Flavor, herbal, faint citrus, and some bready notes, sweet up front with some herbal, citrusy bitterness on the finish. Not bad.
