Should be good and hoppy.

I am still hoping my all columbus wheat will mellow out because it is currently barely drinkable at 33 IBUs. I should have used another hop type but really wanted to try an all columbus beer. Oh well, you brew and you learn.

I did a columbus IPA. It came out really good. I call it my New World IPA really like columbus hops. They seem to have a little of everything.

It wasn't exactly single hopped but enough that I believe the columbus is the predominant flavor.

I just sampled this White Wheat beer before kegging it. I must say this is the best tasting beer I have ever made. Good hop presence but not overwhelming.
