Golden amber in color with a nice head. Huge aroma of fruit and grass. Succulent but dry hoppiness, tinged with orange and grapefruit with enough sweet, slightly caramel malt to keep it balanced. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear amber with slowly diminishing, frothy, medium white head. Big aroma of grapefruit right from the start, with more subtle notes of juniper and toffee. Lightly bitter with intense carbonation and a light body. Aftertaste of dried apricots maybe. Maybe. Everything except the grapefruit hoppiness is subtle in this beer. Overall, not bad, but nothing remarkable about it either.

On tap at their tasting room. This was my favorite of their beers I think... the hops definitely stand out in taste and aroma. A bit thin. The bitterness comes out towards the end.

Odell’s makes some of my favorite beers. There are a few breweries who never disappoint. Odells has been one of those for me.Nice head out of the bottle. Sweet, golden color, faint hop/malt tastes. Very refreshing beer. Very good beer.

Thanks to Shanon for this one!
Not so clear pale orange-amber with lower carbonation. Fruity/piney hop aroma. Starts with a floral sweet that turns citrusty and malty finishing with only a mild bitter and long lingering grassy/fruity/piney hop aftertaste. Very dry hopped. Solid.

Pours a deep amber orange, with huge bubbles forming a thick, long-lasting head. Lots of orange, lemon, grapefruit and spice, with a dry, hoppy finish. Smooth, thick mouthfeel and surprisingly well balanced. Excellent beer, but nothing particularly unique about it. I’ll buy it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber/gold and has a creamy white head. It’s a great looking beer and head-retention is excellent. Aroma is hoppy and malty. It smells really fresh. Taste is moderately hopped and fairly malty as well. I also get a hint of metallic and it’s a bit too crisp for me. For being a session pale, the body is pretty big. All in all, I’d say this is quite good, but not amazing. I’d get it again, but I wouldn’t really seek it out.

Light amber body with nice fluffy off-white head. The aroma is light citrus with a touch of caramel. The flavor is grapefruit, biscuit, and caramel. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Nice session APA.
