COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Columbus Brewing Co is one of a select number of breweries in the US invited to participate in Ales for ALS campaign. These beers all feature a unique and propietary hop blend from Loftus Ranches and Hopunion featuring Citra, Mosaic, Equinox, plus experimental varieties HBC291, HBC336, and HBC344. A portion of the sales will be donated to ALS TDI, the world’s leader in ALS research.

CBC’s 2014 Ales for ALS is an IPA clocking in at 7.5% abv and 85 ibu. Its flavor and aroma are explosive, featuring notes of fresh tropical fruit (mango, papaya), pine, and citrus (tangerine, lemon?). While the flavor and aroma profile bears a striking resemblance to another famous ipa from Columbus Brewing Co, we can promise this is a unique blend of hops only being used by 69 breweries in 22 states….all for a great cause.

Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
On draught at The Crest. The beer is a slightly hazy golden-straw color with a thin white head that burns away steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, melons and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Good IPA all around.
