Bottled on 5/12/13 and drank on 5/21/13. Fresh! Pine and herbal aroma and taste. Very bitter finish! Label says it is a "session IPA" ---but no mention of ABV on either bottle or website.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Gold with some particulate and a medium beige head. Strong simcoe and piney aromas. Hops and a little malt. A surprising amount of flavor for a session although the finish is pretty watery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a fully hazy pale amber golden with a large white head. Strong pine hop aroma, resinous, with grassy and citrus backings. Similar flavors, more grassy than citrusy, with just a hint of malt. A simple but good pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to blowofftube. pours a fairly clear light orange color with minimal head. nose is slightly catty. not much malt or yeast by product in the whiffer. taste is kinda flat with a general bitterness and grassiness. not much of the piney citrus I was expecting but not a bad beer.

12 oz. bottle supplied by WillForRunBeer. Many thanks! To short-stemmed, it pours a clear light orange with which a sudsy, whitish head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of peas, hops, sunflower seeds, wet dog, poppies, and American yeast, Tastes the same with the addition of minced garlic, basement, and pale malt by swallow.

My second Odd Side brew. A pretty decent beer. You can for sure have a few of these in a row. Wouldnít mind getting more.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from mix and match pack, Kalamazoo Michigan's drake party center. Golden yellow pour with half inch of bright white head. Lots of bubbles rising from the glass bottom, dense lacing covered the glass as the beer went down. Strong sweet floral hop aroma that's very skunky, honey scent too. Very very light, fluffy mouthfeel, a little watery. Pretty light taste too. Sweet Grapefruit-y and floral hop flavor, bitter malt that has a grapey flavor mixed with some burton saltiness. Overall more bitter than sweet. Light easy drinking session IPA. The skunky, grapiness is very unique.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
