Dense white head, pours copper-starw color. Very balanced with resiny, pine, citrus flavors with a bit of toasted malty back. Finishes clean and crisp. Delicious seasonal beer, one my very favorites!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured in a pint glass at Muddy Waters. Strong hop aroma on a straw-hued well-laced beer variety. Odell nails this style with a hoppy, yet smooth beer with vibrant citrus notes. Great mouthfeel throughout. One of the best.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong showing on this American Pale Ale. The aroma is hoppy with some piney, scallion, and faint citrus notes with a malt undertone. Taste is nice and pretty much exactly where you’d want it to be: a sneaky malt flavor is punctuated by hoppy character. Finish is just the right amount of bitter but still sweet...a good summer brew me thinks... what is going on around here...someone call animal control.

12oz bottle that pours clear amber. Mellow pine and citrus nose. Well balanced flavors of orange and grapefruit mixed with a honey like sweetness, againist a easy going bitterness. Some pepper in the finish. Easy beer to drink and very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Soft start but good finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Plenty of citrus and perfume in the nose. Nice carmel malts, a little bitterness, more than a hint of onions -Perle? Downgraded about a half point overall. Other than that, love it. "Aside from that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?"

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours copper with great foamy head. Heavy hops on the nose with lemon and floral notes. Very light with some malts, hops and mild bitterness. Very well balanced, yet complexed with flavor. Nose says double IPA, but is much more mellow and easy to drink. Lemon, wheat, citrus fruit, are dominant. Another great beer from Odell!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden color with a lovely white head. Aromas are huge citrus hops and grassy notes. Flavors are slightly bitter and citrusy, then some delicate sweetness, followed by another dash of citrus hops that fade quickly. The palate is thin but the crispness of carbonation is just a little lacking. Overall this is one of my favorite seasonal beers and I can’t wait for its release every year I drink it every chance I get.
