Odell Prop Culture 4
Corked and caged 750. I see a lot of sediment near the bottom of the bottle. First pour is clear orange yellow, second, things get hazy. That will turn to cloudy, Iím sure. Small head of foam sitting on top, lots of lacing but it isnít sticky. Smells of banana, cloves, pineapple, pepper, barnyard. Loads going on aroma wise. I taste cloves, banana, pineapple, pear, white pepper; itís sort a sweet and has a hint of barnyard. I keep expecting some sort of tartness but I donít think I am pulling that out. Fairly light on body and carbonation. Finishes notably on the dry side. Excellent Saison.

Odell Runoff Red IPA 4
Pretty red, dark. Good head,diminishes quick surprisingly. Aroma is malty, kinda nutty, fresh, and light hop of which I cant detect much. Floral, mild. Maybe soapy. Taste is good for red ipa, its very smooth with a nice malt complexity, hops are different- not really hoppy and at the same time I donít know what is going on here between malts and hops, so I guess its refined and complex, soft and creamy,no sharp or harsh malt, not overyly sweet but just enough.

Rhombic
Odell 90 Shilling 3.6
[Letís go with this one, looking forward to it!] Bottle, 355mL. Pours a distinctive brownish amber, copper like as I saw someone saying, nice off-white head with fabulous lacing. Floral aromas, with a subtle cigar-like bite to it, soft pineapple and some other fruitiness, not to estery but really nice, not overpowering at all. The hop profile in the flavour is NOT the typical all-Cascade IPA that leaves you with that terpene shot right in your face. May I add that, while that is a safe bet, flavours like those in this beer are more interesting to explore and very much enjoyable too. Just a bit on the soft side maybe? Thereís a certain woody character to it, with a bit of mild piquancy, pepper-like, well balanced. To find an imperfection, it does fall short on roundedness, which impacts the body that is mild to medium (especially because it quickly dissipates: it has flavour but on the short side). On palate itís -maybe surprisingly- rather dry, even a bit watery, not like those slick oily ales... Iím all in for the dryness but would have preferred a bit more texture in for it. Those sort of balance out, to be fair. Overall, refreshing and drinkable.

lokis333
Odell Cutthroat Porter 3.8
Deep brown color with quite large creamy, tan foam. Aromas mainly of malts which branches out to smootch sweet chocolate, light caramel and very subtlie coffee hints. Although do pick up very slight acidic notes. Palate, medium body, thick and smooth texture leaving very smooth but light roast malt/chocolate finish. Taste is very smooth and easy of chocolate and bit of light coffee, not too complex. Overall, quite nice porter, although it is a stile I have not explored much of yet. But this definatly was nice, would like bit more of thickness to it but then it would taste like a stout? Not sure, it is definatly nice and enjoyable but not to heavy going either + awesome label!

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is moderately grain forward with some light wheat notes. Lots of tropical fruit with pineapple being in the forefront. Melon and mango are also very prevalent with some lighter citrus notes. Pours a hazy, cloudy, pale gold with a medium sized, somewhat thin, white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor has a medium acidity with some light sweetness. Moderately strong tropical fruit notes with pineapple, melon, citrus and mango. Some light grain notes. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice beer. Lots of fruit notes with balanced, soft acidity and a hint of sweetness. A bit of grain with nice tropical fruit notes.

Odell Tree Shaker Imperial Peach IPA 2.8
Tap at Up Down Des Moines. Bright orange nearly bronze colored body. Fresh peach and oranges are present in the aroma. There is also a fresh baked bread quality. Taste of boozy piney dough. Citrus comes through in the hot finish. Itís like sucking on a peach pit. Just a strange off balance brew that isnt hoppy enough that be bitter and not fruity enough to be a fruit beer. A let down for Odell. Welcome to Iowa Odell, I look forward to trying more.

Odell Trellis Garden Ale 3.4
Slightly cloudy, orange pour with a huge foamy head. A little bit of lace hangs around. Aroma is sweet, a little floral as well. Hints of pine and spice. Light bodied. Flavor is fruity with some vegetal notes as well. Herbs present, it tastes very green. Citrus and pine bounce off each other. A very unique beer. I think we drank it a little past its prime, but still enjoyable.
