Forgot I had this in the fridge. Golden pour, large head. Catty citra hopping, pine resin, wood, whisky aroma. Dank, pine and lemon bitterness giving way to wood, molasses sweetness, lighter whisky notes while drinking this. Medium body. Unique.

Good! Citra pale ale is great and this is like that but slightly less fresh and a little more.... I dunno.... Oaky... Like it’s difficult to pick out but it’s there. I enjoy it. At first taste it’s completely different, but then later it grows more similar.

Very good. I think I like the plain CPA better but that doesn’t stop this one from being good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells great with a hint of oak and citrus. Dark Amber with one finger head that dissipates quickly. Thick mouth feel. Molasses and pine with malt finish. Thick mouth feel. Good but missing something. A little boozy. Solid beer though.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange with white head, aroma brought notes of salt earth, grass, some oak, caramel toffee, some hints of bug spray as well. Taste is a mix of grass, dry oak, vanilla, bread, hints of lemon, touch of caramel, finishing sweet, slightly dry, bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a golden orange with a medium white head that quickly fades into a ring around the glass. Aroma of bourbon and citra hops. Some oak, some grapefruit, pine, sweat, and cat aromas. Flavor is woody, salty, with bourbon sweetness and still surprisingly viable hop bitterness. Medium bitterness. This is kind of a funky idea but I haven’t gone wrong with Odd Side.

Trade extra from FlandersNed-thanks, Steve! Copper orange. Nose is light vanilla, orange hops, caramel. Taste follows with some soft oak, light vanilla and bourbon. Good, but as with just about every barrel aged IPA/pale ale, what’s the point?

Pours a hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Has an aroma of citrus and something else odd. People on the site point out that it’s vanilla, which makes sense, but I think the combination of the scents also comes off like coconut, in a way. Flavor is tropical fruits, vanilla, coconut, and some moderate hops. Very interesting and very good.
