COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA pours a slightly hazy, pale orange with a balanced malt flavor and finishes with a wonderful flavor and aroma only American hops can provide. This beer is served unfiltered to retain all the bouquet from the hops.

pours a darker orange than I expected given the label’s description, but it is no doubt a beautiful color. One finger of foamy head. Aroma is all citrus and pine. flavor is much more malt forward than the aroma would have you think. Body is medium thick. Somewhat of a lasting piney stickiness.

12oz bottle, big thanks to Ryan for this surprise! No freshness date to be found. Served at around 40F.



Pours very hazy orange/amber with a large fluffy white head that leaves sticky rings of drippy lacing behind.



Aroma is very floral along with orange, apricot, grapefruit, some pine & grass. Good strength.



Flavor is grapefruit rind, oranges, apricot, pine, resin, floral hops, some caramel malt sweetness in the middle, finishes with a decent bit of grapefruit rind bitterness.



Mouthfeel is medium bodied, somewhat oily, good carbonation.



Well-balanced IPA. Pretty good stuff, glad to have the chance to try it.

12 oz. bottle from OakAgedGravy. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a large fluffy white head that leaves thick lacing. The aroma is grapefruit citrus, resiny and floral hops. The malts are toasted bread with a splash of caramel. Hops have a light citrus note, but are more earthy and dry. Good bitterness toward the finish. Medium bodied. This is a solid drinking IPA.

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.

Very typical IPA. It is a nice local beer that is similar to Lagunitas IPA but less alcohol strength ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

theisti (4221) - Kansas, USA - FEB 27, 2012
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 (6131) - 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.
