On tap at bulldog-uptown. Served in a pint glad. With a finger of rocky white head this brew is clear and IPA orange. Smells fresh. Lots of hops (west coast style/grassy, mango). Taste is plenty malty for the style with a nice rich biscuit malt backdrop with tons of hops. Upfront is fresh grassy with a resiny pine tree like finish. Overall a decent beer with since fresh aroma but turns into a resiny bitter bomb that doesn't catch the fresh easy drinking of many wet hopped beers.

On tap at the Falling Rock. Amber color, good head. Aroma was muted hops and minerals. Flavor was a bit of earthy hops and malt but felt dirty somehow. I wasn;t sure if it was the beer itself or the tap lines at the Falling Rock which don't seem to be cleaned often/properly in my opinion. Bummer of a beer experience and not sure whether to blame Odell or FR.

on tap @ the brewery

Wet hopped brewery using local Colorado hops - fairly dark body, almost amber. Lots of caramel malt, grassy, faint citrus, green tea. Fresh hop beers have become so popular but I swear 75% of them aren't really worth the effort - Odell's other IPA's are much better, imo

On-tap at Odell on Oct. 14th.

A: Clear amber body. Not much head or retention.

S: Was excited for a big fresh hop aroma, but almost none to be found. Caramel malt dominates.

T: Follows the nose pretty well. Every fresh hop beer I've had utilizing Colorado hops this year has been a disappointment. Malt bomb.

M: Fine for the style.

O: If you're looking for a delicious hoppy beer, just get their IPA or Myrcenary which are lightyears better than this.

A pilot brew from their taproom. Description from their website: "Brewed with fresh wet Colorado hops from Ft Collins Hop Acres that spent only 15 minutes between the Wolf Picker and kettle. We also added local wet hops in the mash tun and fermentor to produce a complex hop aroma and flavor reminiscent of peaches, apricots, fresh cut grass, and just the right amount of sticky, resinous dankness."

Pours golden with a slight amber hue through it and a nice thick off white, creamy head. Aroma is sweet and juicy with an underlying dankness to it; peaches, apricots, floral, grassy. After that sweet and juicy aroma, I was a bit caught off guard that the flavor is quite bitter and as dank as it is. Standing to the side is some grassiness, fruitiness, and just a touch of some breadiness. A crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, Odell with another mighty fine beer here.
