Wolf Picker – Experimental Pale Ale (5.5%) - O'Dell Brewing Co. (Colorado)
App: Pours a very clear, golden-copper color. Head is minimal and retention is poor, but lacing is good, with dense lace streaking the glass.
Smell: Hops dominate nose with a funky, melon or gourd like aroma that is slightly rotten (in a good way). Honestly smells a lot like the inside of a pumpkin. Some very delicate pine and citrus on the nose. Almost no malt aromas to note other than a slight sweetness under all the competing hops.
Taste: Malt more present on the foretaste than aroma would suggest. Slightly sweet with a subtle toasted character, blooming into a chorus of different and unique hops flavors. Hops are at first earthy and funky, with a slight putrid note that is really intriguing, transitioning to a more common hops flavor that hints to ornamental orange.
Mouth: Medium bodied, carbonation is fairly soft and doesn't distract from the aroma or flavor. Smallest bit of astringency on the aftertaste, but not at all unpleasant.
Home tasting 12oz bottle into Snifter. 3/31/14.
Serving type: bottle

I had not heard of this brew until I saw it on the tap list at my favorite bar.
Served in a pint glass.
Two fingers of head, after 5 minutes it had settled to a thin layer that left great lacing.
Body was a copperish-amber, almost clear.
Fragrance was hoppy, floral, citrus with a touch of pine.
Taste was predominantly orange, with other citrus and malt.
Body was medium, soft, and not overly strong. Far more bitter than a pale ale.
I would classify this an American IPA, definitely in the category of worth another pint.
Serving type: on-tap

Great pale ale! I probably wouldn't have picked it up if it wasn't part of a sample pack. This pale ale drinks more like an IPA. More bitter than any IPA i have ever had. Very floral, with hints of grapefruit and orange. I am slotting this on my #2 IPA shelf.
