4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
It would probably be more accurate to call this a red IPA. Very nice bitterness and citrus/pine flavor. Great aroma to boot.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from Blackfriars, Glasgow (£4.50):
Hoppy with some caramel and sweet malts. There is some sugar and a generally fruity aroma on top of some tropical fruit notes.
Copper with red tinges and a tiny lacing come head on top that is slightly patchy too.
Sweet with caramel and toffee malts and a topical fruit backing that mirrors the nose. There is a touch of alcohol along with the hops but nothing in your face.
This one has a good balance and nice sweet touches that go down well. The beer is fruity and bitter with a medium body and similar carbonation.
A really nice beer from Odell and one that I would have again. There is enough going between the sweet malts and the tropical fruits to keep you interested and the balance between the two is excellent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Dean’s Birthday tasting, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Clear reddish pour with a thin white head on top. Aroma is slightly floral, malty and a touch of caramel. Flavour is quite disappointing, medium sweet and not much complexity. Watery mouthfeel. It’s a shame, because this beer has a very nice aroma compared to the overall beer.
