COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 Mostly clear pale body with a medium-sized white head, lace. The nose is moderately sweet with citrus, pine and cotton candy. The flavor moderately sweet, lightly bitter with lots of cotton candy, plenty of grapefruit, some resin, tangerine and melon. Medium body is thin with moderate carbonation.

Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Golden color. Hoppy aroma, with some grass and manure, a bit fruity and resiny, not strong but interesting. Medium body strength, malty, with a lot of toffee, quite sweet, and with a good hopping, a bit fruity. Good.

Pours a bright amber-gold color with good carbonation. Good floral aroma with some pine background. Lots of citrusy hops but balanced with enough malt to keep your cheeks from coming together. The 7% ABV is well masked, so be forewarned if you are going to have several. Certainly the standard setter for American IPAs. Well-deserving of the Gold at GABF. First had this last year during a trip to Denver and look forward to bringing some back each time I return.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle: Fiery golden, quite clear, large foamy off-white head, decent lacing.   Soft pine nose, malty for sure, with slight cheese funk on the nose.   Seems as if it might be fairly sweet.   Semi-sweet citrus bitterness, musty malts, very soft palate.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, soft bitterness lingers.   This IPA resides on the citrus bitterness side vs the floral or what I refer to as hop bitterness.   Decent, clean, easy drinking.   Remains semi-sweet from start to finish.   Unlike most others this one doesnít have a bitterness that lingers.   Quick cut-off on the bitterness.   Decent at the start, but while its clean and finishes quickly, you forget that its an IPA.   Not light, but also not as bitter as I would have thought.   Decent enough tho, an one I would love to try on draught.

Had this beer on Nitro at the brewery. Great nose of grapefruit and bitterness. This beer is higher in ABV, but the taste is smooth. Had two of these puppies and I was doing better then when I came to Odellís. Well done IPA; hoppy, but not over done.

This beer is good but the hop or yeast of Odellís comes through. Odellís definitely has a signature taste and hop character that is noticeable throughout but this is good, good and good. The best of the bunch...the wheat is good too.

You have to be fucking shitting me. 2nd time this night this dirty site has jewed me. Fucking a level below dominant. Can see why it got the gold, but I think silver is more in order. Thank you Odell for doing something worth doing.

12oz bottle, 12 07 07. Clear light orange yellow with a small off-white head, fading to a ring. Fruity nose of tangerine, grapefruit, and some floral hops. Light caramel backing it up. Flavor adds some resiny pine to the fruit character. This is one of those beers that seems to have "sweet hops," and I enjoy how the sweet malts meld so well together with the hops. Semi-dry finish with the bitterness peaking at a 4 or 5. No hint of alcohol noted. Light to medium body with light creamy carbonation. Very good IPA, and I suppose Iím OK with it getting a gold this year at the GABF--though there are better IPAs out there.
