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.
