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!

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a slight tint of red, two fingers of white laced head that stuck around for quite a bit. Aroma is very sweet, grassy and floral- grapefruit aroma jumps out for sure. A very big aroma for this IPA. Hits the taste buds with a load of what I smelled, and finishes sweet and hoppy. Love it.

33cl bottle. Pours a beautiful amber color, off white head. Smells of caramel, some hops, light floral and fruity notes. Taste starts sweet with some citrus, vegetal hoppy notes,maybe some yeast. Dry bitter finish. Very good not too sweet/fruity american take on British style IPA.

SpringsLicker (3115) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Clear gold pour with a white head. The aroma has light pine and spice all from the hops. The flavor is nicely bitter but within a good balance. Easy drinking, middle of the road IPA. Thanks to crajun for the trade.

Bif (1382) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2014
On tap at shamrocks. Served a copper color with a small head and good lacing. Aroma of pine, bit of grapefruit and sweetness. Taste of pine, mild malt sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, crisp with a nice clean feel. Nice bee without being overly hopped.

BMMillsy (1254) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle at Pub 17 (the hotel bar in the Grand Hyatt on Welton in Denver) poured into a pint glass. Pours orange colored with a creamy white head on top. Aroma of grapefruits, big pine notes, bready malts. Flavor follows closely with a huge bitter pine bite that is very drying on the finish. Despite the bitter, there is a definite malt presence here and it is certainly not what Iíd call a west coast IPA. Medium bodied, on the dryer side, with medium plus carbonation. Good brew, but not sure it met my expectations.

Light amber color with white, lacing head. Aroma is typical IPA that lasts well after the pour. A little sweetness in the flavor. Mice bitterness with no unpleasant finish.

12 oz bottle. I love odell brewing, but this isnt my favorite from them. Its a little to bitter for my taste. I would go for the 5 barrel from odells. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ansermadide (1500) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Light golden in color, it looks like it has just enough caramel sweetness to look like an IPA. It has a very pleasant, citrusy hop aroma thatís lightly sweet. Once itís in the mouth an even more enjoyable herbal, almost minty green characteristic accompanies the gently resinous citrus and pine hop flavor. Some light, grainy caramel sweetness compliments the resinous flavor beautifully, ending in a finish thatís just bitter enough to be noticeable, but mellow enough for the delicious flavor to be enjoyed even longer than the bitterness. Itís nice... easy, but satisfying. Thisíll be a great summer IPA thatís more satisfying than the average session IPA.

Bottle at Byron burger canary wharf. Orange coloured pour with thin short lived off white head. Aroma is really nice hoppy, resin and pine. Some orange peel on the nose as well. Flavour is biscuity light caramel malts backbone then the hops are nice smooth fruity and resin hops. Bitterness is firm and clean and piny in nature. Palate is semi chewy and medium bodied. Solid IPA.
