COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by our small-batch pilot system, the Roots Release series honors our experimental brewing roots and invites you to sample some of our favorites. The Perle hop shines in this crisp white IPA. An herbal and fruit-like hop character mingles with the delicate wheat for a clean crisp finish that will leave you smiling.

gururyan (646) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a large, frothy, white head that is in no rush to dissipate. Crispy like an apple, bright like a white, body of a wheat, palette like a sessionable IPA. Very chuggable and summer friendly. Odell, you never let me down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (8495) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 Bottle. Lightly hazed gold with a medium-sized white head and little retention. Hoppy aroma is fruity-citric in the way of apricot and lemon and pineapple, but also smells a bit grassy and resinous like a bag of pellets. Medium-light bodied, light to moderately sweet, strong raw bitterness. Wheat and malt is mostly transparent, lightly bready and cracker-like, but not providing enough body, which leaves it watery and thin. Overall itís better than average quality for Odell, no faults or flaws, but itís also pretty basic and boring.

dfinney23 (2159) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Relatively bland, like an IPA for people who donít like IPAs. Crisp and refreshing with a hint of herbal pine hop but thatís about it.

degbert (1312) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with visible small carbonation. Head is pillowy, mixed-grain, and white with copious lace. Nose is lemon, biscuity, dry floral, and just a touch of perfume/incense. Heavy hops bitterness in the front, along with a perfumed, floral note and an odd, blocky lactic edge. It comes off a little ungainly. Finish is long and bitter. I just donít think this style works well, though this is solidly made.

Stine (1645) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Fully hazed milky gold pour. Golden kiwi, coriander, pear skin aroma. Juicy and pillowy, though hiding an intense herbal astringency that is closer to soap than any plant. Clementine, white pepper, Kleenex. Lots of surface area here, little depth.

Pineapple and citrus zest flavor with a fair amount of white spruce like resin. The fragrant character of it is pleasant, but like the aroma it tends to get waxy and papery. Maybe phenolic, or just a weird amalgam of pungent spices and highly herbal hop character.

Doughy, full texture; though the carb is crisp and lively, this is quite heavy to drink. There are some nice ideas represented here, and this example has its moments; this could optimistically be viewed as a small victory for a brewery whose capability with subtlety is seemingly limited.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Draft sample at the brewery. Slightly cloudy hay pour, persistent white head. Aroma of white bread and pepper. Taste is yeast, pepper, grass, slight citrus zest. Meh.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2014
A bit smoother than the regular IPA. Crisp, clean, a little lighter. Very good and very sessionable for an IPA.

Steverus0 (222) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Subtle and balanced but not presenting much interest, this brew is light on the palate and still has some flavor to share. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bill Becker (511) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Howler style from Liquor Shed. A golden coloured brew with a small head of foam that shrinks quickly. The smell is hoppy with big notes of pine and grass and some wheat that has some spicy aspects to it. The taste is hoppy with what I noted above. It does have a wet hop slick kind of thing going on as well. Nice and tasty, good medium mouthfeel, I like this one as I do most of the IPA style variants.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Hazy golden. Aroma is a citrus bomb as is the flavor. As it warms this lessens and it turns somewhat oily. Bitter and fruity with a subdued maltiness and a good bite. The white is largely subplanted by all those hops.

onceblind (5209) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Clear light golden with a thin sticky cap. Hoppy earthy resinous nose with leafy and pine resin notes and a touch of that summit hop bile-like acidity. The acidity goes away a little after a bit of sippin. But itís still very leafy and piney.
