3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Pours a clear light gold with a medium white head that sticks around. Scents of pine, grapefruit, and some fresh cut grass as well. A little bit of mustard thrown in too, which was a bit odd. Pickled jalapeno, cumin? (consulted with the spice rack, the case could be made) Not particularly vibrant or potent as some other IPAs. Taste has some subtle sweet undertones of caramel coupled with some citrus, almost reaches tangelo sweetness, but dulls out into powdered Tang territory which is regrettable. Finishes out a little bitter and develops a tea-like astringency which bears a passing resemblance to a first-flush Darjeeling. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is appropriate. Decent enough, but I’m a bit puzzled by the high rating.

On tap. Pours deep orange. Strong citrus aroma that i could smell before the glass was set down. Aroma dominated by grapefruit and orange with some pine present, too. Taste is filled with the same. Citrus and bitter grapefruit. Finish is dry. Great example of an ipa. I’m glad minnesota now has this beer.

Pours deep orange with white head, aroma is nice orange, lemon, and grapefruit hop character. Taste is nice citrus up front smoothly leading into some biscuit with a nice bitter finish. A bit lacking in hop character up front, but overall a very nice IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice yellow color with a thick white head. Aromas are all hops, pine and citrus from what I can tell. The taste is bitter as expected with mostly a piney, slightly citrus taste to it. Pretty decent IPA and definitely the best beer I’ve ever had from Odell.
