12oz bottle. Pours thick golden head. Disappears quick. Tropical fruit aromas. Taste of pineapple, lemon and dank pine come through. Nice bitter after punch. Well balanced. Reminds me of Pliny. Great beer! Ktwse (5305) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 At long last. The Bodhi has manifested in a new form. jefcon (1921) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2016
It pours a bright and vibrant gold with a stellar, lasting head.
I believe this brew is Citra-dominant, allegedly singularly-hopped with Citra. The nose doesn’t lie. At a distance, the nose is candied lemon and apple, pastel citrus, pineapple, meandering pine resin that seems to waft from heavy doses of Citra, young cherry, pear, just lovely fruit overtones. Gently sweet cereal malt hides beneath the tropical weight.
The first sip starts resinous, yet interrupted by a thick mango, grapefruit and pineapple, tangerine, floral bite. The impression of overwhelming bitterness arises but never comes to fruition. I’m always astounded at the piney/resinous quality Citra can provide. Crackery malt sits very far back in the darkest corners of your palate.
Medium-plus body, very present linger of pineapple, rind, and flowers. This should be the official flagship DIPA of Ohio.
Draft. Pine and citrus aromas. Soapy and dense on the palate. Bitter and sour, but also refreshing. Short finish. RichTheVillan (8109) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016

Keg at Doghouse. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head which soon recedes to a circumferential foamy surround. Aroma is caramel, mango, tropical fruits, pine. Taste is pine, hop oil, grassy bitter, mango sweet, tropical fruits sweet. Highly bitter with a nice balance of fruity sweetness. Warms the throat a bit. Full bodied. GregNC (118) - - JUN 17, 2016
On tap at BD pub Camden. Color : cloudy golden ale with nice white head. Nose : citrus, tropical fruits, and slightly pinus. Aromas : citrus, pinus, floral hops. Texture is really dry, very nice bitterness which lasts for a long time in aftertaste, low carbonation. This one is a really nice craft, dangerously hiding the alcohol. iStout (14) - - JUN 15, 2016
Columbus Bodhi is the best Imperial IPA !
Better than other great Imperial IPA’s like Fat Head’s Head Hunter or Brew Kettle’s Old 21.
Imperial IPA’s are in a class by themselves.
Currently ontap at 101 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.
In Kent, Ohio.
Oh, they only fill 64oz. Growlers.

1/3 BD Camden . Pours hazy gold minimal lacy head. Aroma of pine, hint of mango, slightly cheesy. Full soft mouthfeel. Loads of hops and a nice bitter edge on the taste. Hides the booze well. Very nice . Penus (11) - - JUN 4, 2016
Aroma of lapulin, skunky diesel kush. Smoothness that becomes dangerous with the Bodhi’s ABV ...
I ain’t a trouble maker, officer.
