"Hoppy for a session brew, but pales (pun intended) next to their other pale, St Lupulin. Crisp and refreshing with nice balance. Toasty malts and light orange and grapefruit and pine."

12th August 2014
GBBF Day 1. Bottle share. Almost clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and dry. Mild fine carbonation. Light malts, touch of dry cream. Mild citric bitterness. Light dry finish. An unusually muted beer from Odell.

A fresh, date on the label bottle. Lots of sediment on the bottom of these bottles, and a lovely blue smoke, all great signs of another awesome Odell brew to follow. Pours very pale and hazy after you swirl the last ounce or so. The nose is very floral hops and not much more. A touch of Belgium yeast and bread follow. It smells so fresh and light for a pale. A session brew it is. It has very mild but floral hops up front, a light mouth-feel in the middle, and finishes clean and bright with the hops lingering for just a moment, as they fade you may realize you can drink these after a bomber to lighten up. It is a great American pale session ale. I would prob classify this as a lawnmower or daytime IPA, but the sediment and pale nature kind of blur the category. It is an excellent brew, as have been all eight Odells I have had. This is a very under-rated brew.

This beer was extremely clean and went down too easily. On the lighter side. A good pre-meal or post-ride beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Four Firkins. Pours a pale golden orange with a white head. Aroma has light pine, light citrus, some biscuity malts. Taste is similar; light pine, light citrus, some fruits, some malts. Shrug? Sessionable, yes, not a lot to it, though. 13.1

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice fresh lively sessionable IPA. Hoppy and definitely more on the tree-ish hop side than the floral or citrusy ones. A bit spicy but not too much so. Not real bitter and enough sweetness to balance that out. Easy to drink but definitely for the hop-lover.

Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Clear a bit pale golden color, average sized white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste lightly malts, slightly hops, lightly citrus, lightly zesty, lightly bitter. Average body and carbonation. Hmm I’m not really impressed by this one.
