COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doug Odell’s admiration for the British brewing culture has led him across the pond - a lot. In 2008, Doug landed at Thornbridge Brewery and in the company of kindred brewing spirits. This visit led to a collaboration brew at Thornbridge in 2010. Fast forward to 2012 to find the two breweries at it again, this time at Odell Brewing. Pond Hopper Double Extra Pale Ale is the love child of this international brewmance. Brewed with English malts and American hops, Pond Hopper brings together the best ingredients each country has to offer, balancing a subtle sweet malt character with hints of mango and peach hop flavor. It pours a rich golden color with citrus and ripe melon essence in the nose. No matter which side of the pond you’re on, here’s to good beer and good friends. Cheers.

Bottle from Craigs, dregs run. Pours cloudy orange-brown with a thin white head. Aromas of citrus, spice. Taste is boozy, bitter, some caramel. Clean finish.

McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Fairly murky but dense orange, soft but dense ringed head. Nose is bright gummy spicy marmalade and big tropical fruit spiciness. Carbonation is still fairly solid and mouthfeel clean and lean enough for the ABV and sweetness abound. Finishes clean enough, lip licking sweetness and vibrant malt spicy linger.

Bottle fae Citizen Brock, Pig Out Tasting.

"this had some kick to it, but I was really surprised that it was 9%. Interesting and complex aroma with spicy sweet english malts and copious amounts of citrus and tropical fruit-like american hops. Definitely enjoyed this one."
