Idaho – Barley and hops
Kansas – Wheat
Minnesota – Wild Rice
Missouri – Oak Barrels
Nebraska – Corn
New Mexico – Green Chiles
South Dakota – Barley and honey
Wyoming – wheat

50% ale brewed with honey, 10% ale brewed with honey and aged in wine barrels, 40% ale brewed with honey and natural flavors added

wedgie9 (2028) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Tasted on 8/26/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very bright orange with a thick, off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is pretty unique, with plenty of wheat bread malt, clover honey, a sweet corn note, and just a green combination of hops and hatch green chile. The flavor is more or less the same, quite honeyed, and very complex with all of the same notes from the nose and an added perfume. The body is full with a syrup texture, average carbonation, and a long perfumed, hoppy, and hint of green chile finish. This beer is quite unique, and very nice.

Trev (1955) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle: pour is hazy orange gold with a massive white head. Aroma is sweet, honey and biscuity malt, apricot/ peach fruitiness, floral. Good body, floral and honey on the front, crackery/biscuity malt, hints of nutty rice in there too. Strange minerally taste in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with a white soapy head that fades to spotty film. Aroma is grain fruit like oranges and rind and wine corks (wood) with faint caramel. Taste has a good bitterness and dry fruit of oranges and wood and I get faint wine characteristics. Palate is medium and drying with a chalky finish. This is a complex brew. Another bottle down the road may bring me back to this rating. Non the less this is very enjoying and the alcohol is very well hidden.

[keg, Friends of Ham, Leeds] Extremely excited about trying this, on arriving at FoH I asked how much was left, and the barman replied there was plenty. Drank a few alternatives, then chose the Footprint last, out dribbles less than a third of a pint. So, I got (for free), the last part of the only keg in Europe of Odell Footprint. Opaque golden amber, with a large white head, it had a lovely aroma of orange barley sugar, straw, pine and leather. On the taste, sweet, slightly honey-esque with caramel malt, before a lot of citrus fruit, and then on the finish a peppery, metallic edge before the alcohol arrives. To be honest, I didn’t get much chilli other than maybe as that spritzy copperyness. Still, a great beer – no idea what prickly pear tastes like so we can chalk that one off. I imagine it featured in the overall thought of the beer – which was slightly coppery honeysuckle. Only complaint I have is that I’d like to have had more [18052013]

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Snifter at 41°. Color is a hazy golden with very active carbonation and a tall rocky head that just keeps growing. As you pour more into your glass a few chucky floaties show up. Aroma is fruity and a little sour with some yeast in the back. It has a lighter medium body that goes down with a crisp yet smooth mouth feel. Flavor is light with pear, a hint pf pineapple and just a touch of peach, then a little oak shows giving it a note of vanilla. The hops come in giving a nice floral taste and a little citrus along with a nice bitterness. After taste comes on slightly dry with a tart almost sour feel then the citrus comes back up. Overall its a great brew, big extremely complex flavor, yet light and easy to drink with a nice alcohol kick that is completely hidden.

Bottle at a family tasting. Pours golden with some head. Flavor is very unique and sweet. It almost has a honey flavor to it. You can taste a lot of the different ingredients and it is quite complex. Surprisingly good.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. I like the concept here. Aroma is nice and hoppy--grapefruit is strong; I also get the green chiles--or something vegetal anyway. Pours hazy gold with a long-sustaining thick off-white soapy head. Taste is sweet and meaty; faintly spicy at the end. Tastes more like an imperial IPA than anything, although there are so many different ingredients thrown in to the mix. Not sure what so many of these adjuncts contribute to the overrall beer. All I taste are hops and malted barley with a suggestion of green chiles (??). The oak is nonexistent, but I guess at only 10% of the mix it should be (why only 10%?). An interesting concept, again, but some of these ingredients should be much more prominent (at least noticeable!). That doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s pretty tasty stuff, though. Re-think: beer starts to wear out its welcome after sitting in the glass awhile, lowering my overall a point.

A really enjoyable beer. The grains are really noticeable and it gives it a great earthy malt flavor. Really nice going down.
