Pours lighter golden with lacing white head. Nose is flowers, citrus, limey rinds, grapefruits, spice and some toasty malts. Flavor is similar with some piney hop character as well as some minty pines. This was a couple months old but still pretty good. Wish there were more explosive hops and less toasty malts but I never really like toasty malts in hoppy beers.

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. Wouldn’t mind getting more.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. I’m guessing that if you enjoy Simcoe hops, you would enjoy this beer a lot.
