COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oak aged IPA
Odell IPA that is aged in 2nd and 3rd use Woodcut barrels.

Our Silver medal winner at the 2012 World Beer Cup placed in oak barrel. The oak flavors give the IPA even more complexity with vanilla flavors to go along with the citrus hop character.

Pour on tap at Odell Small Batch Festival 2012, hazy orange with white head. Aroma brought notes of oak, pine, grass, some orange and grapefruit peel, hints of biscuit and bread, touch of earth and some zesty notes. Taste is a mix of slightly aged hops with some oak, bread and biscuit, some orange, lemon and grapefruit, touch of pine, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Pretty good.

On tap at the nice party at Arizona Wine. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium white head. A rich bursting nose of fruit- marmalade for sure-, some oak. The flavor is a earthy sweet fruity concoction, vanilla, woody, not a aggressive hot seemingly more fruity than the regular IPA, easygoing. Everyone was digging this.

Sample at AZwine during RBWG. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma had big citrus notes favoring tangerines and perhaps clementines. Some additional earthy, woody and caramel notes were also in the nose. The flavor was heavy with the citrus hops, tangerine, caramel malts, some grassy notes, woody with more subdued bitterness. This was very good and worth having again if I get the opportunity.

decaturstevo (4996) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Hazy tan/orange pour with white head and lace. Tangerines and wheaty malt aroma. Citrusy flavor like eating an old orange peel. Nice bitter finish. A bit thin and watery to me.

Interesting brew, this - loads of grapefruit, pineapple and other tropical fruits - fairly dry - quite a bit of oak and toasted coconut, which actually compliments the overall tropical character of the beer - tangy, earthy finish - quite nice.
