Brewed with 100% Columbus hops this double IPA is an absolute Columbus hop bomb! Its resinous hop character comes through with huge grapefruit zest and pine notes throughout the brew. The big juicy, fruity, citrus hops add a resinous and almost sticky hop presence in the body making the medium body from crystal malts seem even richer and fuller. This is a hop heads treat! 8.8% ABV, 98 IBU Hops used: Columbus

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is citrus/earth. Or maybe pine/earth. Med body or better. Flavor is earthy, piney with a lot of caramel. Almost toffee in the finish, but the finish is definitely hoppy/bitter.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2014
5oz sample at the Brass Tap. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head, that leaves plenty of super thick lace. Big piney orange citrusy hop aroma, pretty resiny. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Some caramel malt aroma. Bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Good, big, hoppy assertive single-hop DIPA.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 1) Keg, The Pony, UES, 19/02/14. Clear deep orange with a narrow white lid. Aroma of orange cordial and bath foam lavender. Simplistic, slightly hot meaty malt and underlying orange liqueur burn flavour. Marzipan hints. Finally very bitter. Bath water and honey. Not for me. 2) "GF Hop Odyssey Columbus", keg, Amsterdam Ale House, UWS, 22/02/14. Another duplicate? Bastards. Need to get my shit together. Frozen peach, hint of pine nose. Booze taking over anodyne peach, floral, liquorice attempts. No flavour after the Harpoon (Long Thaw); hints of liver and almond (?!). Headless deep bronze freckling with lace. Improves as it warms but still pretty bland. Lime Fruit Pastille hints. Too cold and lacking in personality at 8.8. 636313

On tap. Clear golden orange pour, with a white head and some lacing. Grapefruit, fresh hops, mild tropical fruit flavor, pine, light caramel, and bread. Overall pretty dry, drinkable DIPA. Not too over the top.

A beautiful double single hop IPA. Served in a snifter glass so abundant aroma. Flavor was nicely balanced with malt and bitterness. Nice deep golden color. An excellent beer.
