4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Btl pours hazy light orange in color with a thick, fluffy off white head that lingers for a quite awhile. Leaves alot of lacing on glass. Aromas of oranges,grapefruit, pine and evergreens with a slight sweet malty smell. Tastes of sweet caramel malt followed by massive grapefruit, orange and pineapple flavors. Medium body, smooth, creamy texture, and lively carbonation with a mild bitter finish. The absolute perfect balance between hops and malt make this IPA unbelievably easy to drink. Awesome crisp,clean fresh hop flavors and aromas make this beer stand out among others of the same style.
From Mar 2007
This one pours from 12oz bottle(best by 091907) a slightly hazy orange gold with a good sized head of foam that sticks around for the entire session as a solid layer with a ton of nice lacing.
The smell is....hoppy! I'm getting lots of pine...lots of pine!
The taste on first sip..is all kinds of hoppy. Big pine, big hop oil, some lemon zest, and there's even some caramel malt in the background to take just a touch off the bitterness but not too much.. Nice.
Further sips in and the hops just continue to dominate, as they should, though I'd have to say, the bitterness that they're imparting on my palate is tasty as hell and just makes me want to take another sip, and another, and another....and even though it's at a "healthy" 7%abv, no ways near being what one could call a sessionable ale, I think it's a heck of a good drinker. I take my(BA) hat off to Odell for this one.
Bottom line: A very good IPA from Odell that certainly won't disappoint when it comes to flavour. I recommend it!

Pours deep gold from the bottle. Frothy white head with some lacing. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, melon. Taste is bitter, quite dry, hints of an underlying, fruity sweetness. A very light warmth at the end. Body is medium, average carbonation. Overall pretty good, but nothing exceptional. aleksander9 (1898) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2017

Very nice rounded IPA. Surprisingly high ABV for the taste but malt and hops in perfect harmony for a very drinkable drop.

On tap at Falling Rock, pours a clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma brings out piney hops, some herbal notes and biscuity malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with piney hops, herbal and vegetal notes, and biscuity malt. A bit on the herbal side, but it’s still certainly well-made. Nice IPA.
