Big thanks to Puddintane for sending this as part of FFL payouts! Nice bright amber pour, creamy and elegant head. Nose is really inviting, scrumptious dry and floral hops. Taste is clean and unfiltered, both bright and dry at once, balanced and complex and a terrific IPA overall. goosegossage12 (36) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2012
Very typical IPA. It is a nice local beer that is similar to Lagunitas IPA but less alcohol strength

Tasted on tap at Columbus Brewing pub. Pours dark gold almost amber in color. Not as much aroma as the Bodhi. Taste is piney. Nice beer.

From notes. First reviewed 7/7/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip.
Columbus IPA pours a golden orange caramel color, mostly transparent with a few yeast flecks. A full head of off-white head rests on top and retains nicely, leaving some lace down the side of the glass.
The hop presence in the nose is impressive. Very dank. Some tropical fruits and a bit of citrus as well.
Some soft caramel sweetness to start, but it really does not get in the way of the hops. Very dank, with grapefruit citrus, pine, and mango/pineapple/passion fruit tropical fruit adding some further hop flavor. Finishes wet, juicy, and bitter.
This is a little bit grainy with a fairly light body and carbonation that seems to be compressed and held in check.
I found this to be a little bit off the beaten path as far as IPA’s are concerned, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Shaker pint draft at the brewpub in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a haze orange amber, with a half inch off white head. The aroma is fresh citrus, softly sweet floral, and a light pine hoppiness. The taste is the citrus, the pine, and a nice toasted malt. All flavors nicely blended and vibrant. There is a touch of sweetness and resin near the back. The palate is medium bodied, nice active carbonation, and a dry mineral finish. Nice IPA, this was the first beer of a session and it hit the spot. cheap (5794) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2012
From the bottom of the keg on tap at vintage estate. Big IPA aroma. Looks like pale lager and not hazy as described. Creamy big head. Yes, big citrus ipa flavor. Flat, no co2. Flavor is fresh ipa impact. If you are into IPA, ignore my numbers, this stuff is terribly on style. jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
bottle from Gaswerkz Columbus, pour is a nice orange color as far as i could tell amidst all the lights bouncing off the mardi gras beads, nose is hoppy, but taste is well balanced.. almost malty finish which may be due to age, but still a very tasty IPA OmegaX (1374) - Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Thanks to the chaps who let me try this one. You know who you are...Nose is full of fresh hops. Some grassy, citrusy, and pine-laden hops with some light fruity tones in the background. Spigot water and fresh outdoor aromas waft out of this brew. The taste is very similar with a slight caramel malt to help balance out the fresh, in your face hops that make this one so good. Balanced and an American hop lover’s dream. Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
This IPA was great. Aromas held promise, giving off a pungent aroma that was floral and spicy. Hops were rich and bittersweet, while a near-perfect malt finish created the perfect balance.
