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!

Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Amazing hit of Banana and Peach on the nose. Pours an Amber-Orange with a fine, white head. Light carbonation throughout with strong head retention. A great refreshing ale with a lot of thought put into it. Floral notes at every turn. Overall: A great collab which is refreshing with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Great aromas throughout and worth buying if you get the chance!

You can tell that there is far more 'Odells' in this than 'Roosters' before you even taste it. The aroma alone is alive with that combination of fruit and spice only a quality American ale can offer. The taste completely backs this up with vanilla, toffee and and almost astringent bitterness. Fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Frederic for the cellar run. Cheers mate! almost clear gold beer, little white head. Light palate, smooth and slightly dry. Really good hops - juicy orange with good floral notes. Joining the taste party are tropical fruits, lime being most noticable. Adding more complexity is lesser lemon and grape. All flavours very well integrated in this super tasty and drinkable beer!
