Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Had twice -- once out of the bottle dated 5/3/13 yesterday, and this one (from a separate batch) with an erased date, poured into a pint glass. Appearance: Not the best looking label in the world -- itís supposed to look like an acid trip, I think, with a simcoe hop sitting in front of a hippy background. Insanely hazy with very little light getting through. Thereís about a finger of head that goes to one and sticks around a little while. Even after the head is gone, the lacing is unbelievably sexy. Smell: Unreal ... definitely highlighting the simcoe... fruity and floral as hell. Taste/feel: At the ABV, itís hard to believe. Thereís a mild bitterness, but thereís a surprisingly nice balance with malt in there. Fruity and floral from the simcoe, with a slightly spicy malt finish that lingers extremely pleasantly. The feel is actually a bit heavier than I was expecting, which is a great thing -- I REALLY have a distaste for watered down feeling beers. The balance is what makes this beer much better than the likes of All Day IPA by Founders, which seems to be an extremely popular beer. Not only is it a great beer at 4.5%, itís just a great beer. Smells incredible, tastes almost just as good, looks spectacular in the glass... wow. It may be $2.19 per bottle (not sure the six-pack price), but I have to say itís actually worth it. I donít normally like "session ales" (light beers), but this one is great.

Aroma is lost on me as usual thanks to my crappy sinuses. Dark yellow color. I think I understand Simcoe hops now - piney, grassy, a little bit of citrus. Not a lot of malt is obvious in this beer. Iím guessing that if you enjoy Simcoe hops, you would enjoy this beer a lot.

callmemickey (2652) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Hazy golden-orange, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Grassy, piney, citric simcoe profile with a noticeable, but light, pale malt presence. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, moderate bitterness.

bigtaster (549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Unfortunately from a bottle. Lighter beer, nose had citrus and floral. Body is light with a lot of carbonation, light hops slight bitterness in the finish, mostly fruity hops, not much malt.

DrSilverworm (6277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
12oz bottle from Vine & Brew. Hazy amber orange golden color. Thin white head. Good ropes and bits of lace. Medium body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice citrusy grapefruity hop profile. Nice grassiness. Light biscuity caramely malt. Great session IPA.

HonkeyBra (3318) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2013
One of my favorite styles right now. 12 oz. bottle. Pours a rich hazy orange with a small ring around the lip of the glass. Aroma of dank, pine, and tropical fruit hops. Flavor is strong, sharp, delicious bitter hop notes. Pine, mango, tangerine and orange peel. Delicious. Light bodied, nice effervescent carbonation. Finishes long and bitter. This is a perfectly executed session IPA.

mmmm_beer (2) - Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2013 does not count
Very bitter and I like that. I am a fan of Odd Side Ales and I am happy to recommend this to any hop head.

jbrana (427) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Not my favorite. Has a really basic pale malt base with a faded sharp bitterness. Has some flavors of citrus, pine, and very resinous.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a hazy straw color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of some grassiness and citrus. Tastes of floral hops with some citrus rinds.

Draft to taster at Odd Side. Looks alright; light for an IPA though, even if it is a session; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells solid; Simcoe hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid, light mouthfeel. A solid session IPA.
