Odell Prop! Culture
Cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. The aroma is full of funk, with saison yeast esters. There is a lot of citrus and brett character. The flavor is nice. Starts out with Belgian yeast character and finishes with brett and a bit of bitterness. Tasty stuff.

slightly pale red with a small amount of quickly dissipating white foam. It smells like berries (cherry, raspberry), slight butter, oak. The flavor is the same, nice and tart but not overly sweet, a bit of spicy woodiness. Crisp carbonation with slightly slick, medium mouthfeel. It finishes with an almost tannic bitter bite. Delicious.

Passed through the taproom. Was driving so I could only get one beer. Slammed a pint of this, grabbed a 12 pack of cans to go, and couldnít wait to get home. This is what a light pale ale is all about. Loved it.

Odell Jolly Russian
12 oz bottle, 2016 vintage- Pours black with minimal tan head. Aroma is licorice, molasses, milk chocolate, light breakfast coffee, sweet and decadent. The taste is velvety smooth chocolate, warming alcohol is very noticeable, but never fully becomes boozy, rum, the oak imparts a dryness on the palate that balances out all the sweetness, and keeps it from becoming a sweet boozy mess. Kind of wishing i would have held onto this for a year or so.

Odell Wolf Picker Pale Ale
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy straw yellow with a medium fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet lemony fruit with some stinky resin.

The flavor is sweet candy fruit with resiny, slightly harsh metallic, hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK pale ale.

Itís not bad but really nothing special. The sour is definitely there and a little salt and so is the Blackberry but thatís about it.

í14 vintage on draft at the Taphouse. Murky brown pour, small, soft beige head. While not overpowering, the barrel is immediately evident in the aroma. Kind of boozy. Lots of malt too. Kind of sweet. Plenty warm. Finishes kind of fast though, sweet on the palate, fire in the gut.

Thereís a 2017 stamped inside the orange rectangle. It pours a hazy gold with over a finger of foam and respectable lacing. Plenty of Brett and sour notes in the smell with some tropical fruitiness. I get a tart and funky taste and thatís mixed in with tropical fruit and even a malty sweetness. Medium body and carbonation with the alcohol hardly noticeable. Intriguing idea that turned out to be executed very well!

Odell Drumroll
12oz can. 2/8/17 code date. Appearance: Cloudy pale golden with a moderately thick white head and really nice lacing. Aroma: Very fruit forward hop aroma, heavybon the mango, nectarine, Orange, and a bit of pineapple Taste: Light crackery maltiness with a touch of caramel, some tart grapefruit, and a sharp grassy bitterness that builds and finishes with a drying bite. Mouthfeel: Somewhere between light and medium bodied, with a moderate carbonation. Finish: Fairly dry, some lingering resinous bitterness, and a touch of grapefruit. Overall: Fairly standard APA. Has a pleasant fruit forward aroma, with a fairly light maltiness that accentuates the bitterness. Comes across more aggressively bitter than typical for the style, almost in line with an IPA

Can. Doesnít stand out in any way. Aroma is some roasted barley with a bit of hops on top. Flavor has some nice chocolate. Hop profile is minimal and non-distinct. A little astringent.

Odell Mountain Standard Double Black IPA
Can pours a dark brown color with a red hue. A huge Insanely dense tan head that hangs around for the intire drink, leaving lace on glass at every swallow. Aromas of pine,baked sugar, toasted bread and caramel. Tastes of roasted grain, resin, and toffee. Medium body, smooth coating mouthfeel, perfect carbonation,and a malty, toasty finish. This is a perfectly balanced beer. The alcohol content is hidden well, making this beer very easy to consume. Excellent hops flavors meld nicely with the roasted grains, creating a magical IPA. Nice!

Predominantly pine hop aroma with a considerable amount of brown sugar scented malt sweetness. Very pretty crimson color with a large cream colored head. Nice malty flavor, similar to a red ale with a fairly weak yet earthy hop bite at the end. Good palate - dense for the ABV, low carbonation, smooth. Solid offering from Odell.

Odell India Pale Ale (IPA)
Canít believe Iíve never rated this. Probably my go to colorado IPA. Always clear appearance with good lacing, odell whirlpool system helps with that. Awesome citrus & pine aroma, hop forward taste, with some nice malt sweetness backbone. Clean finish with odell house yeast. One of the best IPAís in colorado (if not the). A solid go to every time. Doug odell is a genius.

Odell Lone Comet IPA
Bottle pour out of a 2016 winter montage pack. Pours with a thin white head, with great lacing. I think the moral of this story is comet, great hop for melon flavor, not a great dry hop. Aroma is a bit stanky for lack of a better word, not exactly up my alley. Taste is quite good though, big melon and a bit of citrus. Appearance benefits from Odells whirlpool system, super clear. Clean finish, tastes like they are using the same house yeast they use for IPA and 5 barrel which is super clean finishing. Iíd drink it again, but probably wouldnít seek it out.

Picked up as part of winter pack. Pours copper with lots of off white head that seems to last. Light aromas of citrus and melon. Very pleasant. Lightly malty really set up to showcase the hops. Almost no bitterness but a pleasant citrus flavor. Clean and almost no finish a bit of melon at the end. Interesting. I like hoppy ipas but this is nice.

Didnít know much about the beer, but I knew that Odell has some quality stuff. Poured a medium-to-straw gold yellow hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. For the style, excellent uneven foamy lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.00) Smelled cloves, a touch of banana, maybe banana bread, caramel, grass, hay, corn, unknown spices and even cantaloupe and/or melon. (Smell - 3.75) Taste followed the nose nicely. This is very nice and refreshing. Cloves, honey, grass, hay, corn, bready yeast, cereal, peppery spices, lemon zest, faint Circus Peanuts candy, banana bread and some caramel malts. (Taste - 4.00) Light body. Oily-to-thin texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, refreshing finish. (Feel - 4.00) For the style, this nailed it. Very good. (Overall - 4.00) 3.94 88 B+

Odell Myrcenary Double India Pale Ale
Pours golden orange with a fluffy head which soon settles. Aroma is all kinds of tropical fruit like orange, pinapple and passion fruit. There is also pine and resin along with a smooth caramel note. Although very sweet tasting it is perfectly offset by the bitterness of the hops and has a fluffy yet oily texture in the mouth. This really is a classic double IPA. Fantastic beer!
