look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: a deep yellow/orange. Pretty hazy. An off white head that leaves a lacing.

Smell: strong tropical fruit, slight hoppiness

Taste: strong tropical fruits and citrusy/tropical hops. Very dry malty backbone.

Mouthfeel: slightly bitter but strong fruity after taste. A little dry.

Overall. This is probably the tastiest pale ale I have had in a while and easy could be considered one of my favorites. Definitely worth a try

$2.19 bottle that was bottled with a half rubbed out date ... can't make out the month. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

Appearance: Odd label. Lime green background with purple trees in the foreground, with oranges and lemons on the ground. A hazy orange color with a few chunks floating around. Two fingers of head goes away pretty quickly, leaving a white film on top. Lacing is patchy.

Smell: Sweet, malty, but then fruity and herbal hops from the citra.

Taste: About what I expected. There's a really nice hop flavor that's balanced out very nicely by the malt. Quite dry. The citra is highlighted but it's not quite as potent as a beer like Zombie Dust is. This beer doesn't taste much like Zombie Dust, surprisingly, but they're both excellent beers in their own right.

Another great beer from Odd Side. To my surprise, less bitter than Simcoe Sensation, but has a very nice flavor -- drinkable as hell. Zombie Dust has a bit more "oomph", but having a local citra-centric beer is awesome. Must try.
