COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special.
The guys at Odell Brewing Co., Fort Collins, Colorado, visited us last year as part of a whistle stop tour of various breweries up and down the country and were kind enough to invite us to have dinner with them that evening. As we sat and ate and drank, we talked about a lot of things, including baseball and cricket, but we mostly talked about beer. Fast forward a few months to the end of last year and we were delighted when Doug Odell, founding brewer of Odell Brewing Co., sent us an email asking if we’d like to brew a beer with him. A question that took a nanosecond to respond to… yes! Several months and various emails later, Doug joined us at the Brewery for a couple of days to finalise the recipe and brew the beer. The Accomplice is a pale ale as prepared for India that’s been brewed using six different varieties of hops, crammed into almost every possible part of the brewing process, to create intense floral and fruit aromas, backed up by a balanced level of bitterness. When we suggested the name to Doug, his response was, “It sounds kinda sinister… I like it!” So, there we have it, The Accomplice is currently fermenting away and will be available in cask for a limited period from the beginning of July. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoyed brewing it!

Excellent IPA that is full of classic IPA flavours. Odells are the dominant force here and the dry pine finish is a treat.

Bottle from BeerRitz in Leeds. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a white head. The taste is initially pretty sharp with strong lemony citrus flavour. The finish is long and bitter. A little thin in body with no real malt flavour to back up the hops. I expected more of this one.

Keg at Mother Kelly’s on RBESG day 2, 08/08/14. Clear golden with a well appointed off white covering that retains. Nose is floral, perfumed notes, hops, faint turkish delight, light pine, big on the perfume. Taste comprises light pine, spice, hoppy pangs, more floral notes, herbal tones.
