This is more than a limited edition offering. Itís an enigma in liquid form. At first it looks like a deep mahogany ale, then you take the first sip and notice its distinct hoppy character. We begin with a ridiculous amount of Cascade and Chinook hop varietals from Western Colorado and bring out their flavor with the hop back. Then we double dry hop for even more of that aroma you love. The result is an unforgettable beer from the forgotten time.

Sampled in the big bottle. Pours deep brown, bit cloudy. Head on it was pretty thick. Overall this beer disappointed a bit for what I had expected after aging for 8 months. Very malty, not much from the hops that they included. Good brew, but had really high expectations.

Bottle 2009 Brought back from Fort Collins from my buddy Dale aka Tevis. Pours out deep amber topped with a tan head. Aroma was of floral hops, sweet malts, caramel, and some earth tones. Taste more of the sweet caramel and rich malts. A good hop bitterness to round out the sweetness. Not to bad.

Really enjoyed this beer. Nice hop taste with a slightly sweet malt back bone. The aftertaste is more malty than hoppy. Good stuff!

To me, this was a big, hoppy, American brown ale. Very nice, I really enjoyed it with the earthy hops balancing out the toffee, caramel sweetness of the malt. Very good

750 ml. Pours a deep red mahogany color with big solid off white head. Aroma is heavily hoppy and heavily malty at the same time with notes of resin, grapefruit, floral, caramel, slight citrus, slight pine, raisins, slight coffee, and dates. Wow! As it begins to warm up a little the hops come out and the amazingly balanced character becomes apparent. Slowly as the smell of hops subsides its balance on the taste end really starts to step up. Taste is balanced but incredibly intense on both fronts. A smooth bitterness kicks in quickly turning to a bittersweet bliss. Palate is FULL bodied but oddly enough quite easy to put down though this is definitely a beer for sipping. Finishes with the same bittersweet sensation it began with. Bravo Odell.... Love it....

Tap at Odellís. Pours clear brown with an average, creamy light tan head, lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, chocolate, roasted barley), heavy hops (flowers, perfume, pine), light yeast with notes of alcohol, raisin, dates, and toffee. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness and bitterness, light acidity.
