12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Columbus/Dublin. Pours a hazy brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of earthy, citrus hops with some caramelized sugar notes. The taste is bitter citrus and earthy hops with caramel malts. Medium bodied. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy murky yellow color with a white head. The aroma is exactly what I expect from an American IPA. I get a lot of pine and orange notes with a little bit of bready malt.
The flavor is more of the same. I get some pine and papaya, as well as some bread and biscuit malt. There is a lot of hop flavor but the bitterness is fairly low for this style of beer.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. jtclockwork (16600) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2011

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Dark murky color with a golden hue. Aroma has hints of citrus, grapefruit, hops and pine. Flavor is earthy with a sweet finish. Not too malty but has a nice distinct sweetness I can’t seem to place.

A: The pour is a clear orange/amber color with a big white head and some sticky lacing.
S: The nose is rather nice. Lots of citrus notes featuring orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. A light grass note and plenty of pine and floral hop aromas. Just a little bit of bready malts.
T: Tastes just as citrusy as it smells. Nice fresh orange and grapefruit flavors with a little bit of tropical fruit, too. The requisite pine bitterness is there with only a touch of grass and bread.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Just my second beer from these guys, but both have been quite enjoyable. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Had on tap while in Columbus for a business trip...outstanding IPA with an impressive bouquet of hops. Citrus, pine, resin all the the nose and palate. nice bitter kick up front and and the finish. Body isn’t huge, but there, and supports the hops well. Really good. bluejacket74 (1992) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2011
I’ve had Columbus IPA many times before with it being a local favorite of mine, but surprisingly I’ve never reviewed it until now!
12 ounce bottle. Served in a Columbus Brewing Company pint glass, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head that stays around for a while. There’s a lot of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is mostly citrusy hops (tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, mango), along with some piney hops and a bit of sweet malt. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, it’s full of citrusy and pine hops, and there’s some light malt in there too. There’s also a very long lasting bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with good carbonation. This is one of my favorite IPA’s, and I’m glad this is made here in town and is readily available in the area. Definitely recommended. fonefan (49389) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2011
