3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a fresh 12oz brown bottle into Spieglau IPA glass, a clear orange amber colour with persistent white foam and lace. Aroma is really great. Along the lines of many American IPAs but better than average. Citrus and not just grapefruit, lime leaves, lemon zest, orange marmalade, piercing dank ganja weed (Columbus?), intense woodsy/earthy/spicy (Simcoe?), floral, fruity, leafy. Flavour was the same, perhaps just a little less complex. Rich malty, caramelly, bready maltbill underneath. Slight residual sweetness but not at all syrupy. Medium body and carbonation, long-lasting hoppy aftertaste. Very tasty, another strong flagship offering from Odell.

On tap at some fucking bar near my hotel in Minneapolis. I was going to go to town hall on my one free night but since the WNBA game let out and the train was picked this will do I guess. Pours copper, small off white head. Some light pine and resin, toast, slightly bitter. Finish is long and drying.

Pretty good hop aroma, pine and maple. Flavor of mild malts and mango hop flavors. A little light on mouthfeel but bitterness works for this one.

Draft at Sioux Falls Regional Airport (SD). Poured orange in color, clear, lots of foamy head and lots of lacing. Aroma of malts, bread and citrus fruit. Taste of bread, orange and grapefruit; some grass and hoppy notes. Very solid IPA; very good.

12 oz bottle poured. Purchased at Molly’s in Denver. Pours an oily, fizzy golden color with a thick foam head. I remember trying this beer a couple years ago for the first time, and wasn’t impressed at all. 2 years and a ton of IPA’s later, my opinion of it has improved, but by no large margin. Aroma is the best quality here, with a wonderful hops presence. Flavor comes of as sweet forward, and bitter finish, which has always been a bothersome combination for me. Creamy body, heavy citrus, but sweet. Middle of the road IPA for me. Good.
