COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doug Odell’s admiration for the British brewing culture has led him across the pond - a lot. In 2008, Doug landed at Thornbridge Brewery and in the company of kindred brewing spirits. This visit led to a collaboration brew at Thornbridge in 2010. Fast forward to 2012 to find the two breweries at it again, this time at Odell Brewing. Pond Hopper Double Extra Pale Ale is the love child of this international brewmance. Brewed with English malts and American hops, Pond Hopper brings together the best ingredients each country has to offer, balancing a subtle sweet malt character with hints of mango and peach hop flavor. It pours a rich golden color with citrus and ripe melon essence in the nose. No matter which side of the pond you’re on, here’s to good beer and good friends. Cheers.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty amber, hazy, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Candied citrus peel on the nose, seems somewhat fruity.   On the tongue it appears to be hoppy, citrusy, sweet, with some tropical fruit like notes.   As it warms it seems to be more peach or apricot like, along with candied citrus peel.   Sweet, malty, with a candied hop aspect, I can dig it.   Body and mouthfeel are however moderate.   Sweet fruity finish, loads of candied citrus peel and sweet dried apricot.   If you want a hop bomb, this is not your beer.   If you want a well balanced IIPA with some fruity notes, then give this one a shot.
