12oz bottle out of the new Montage mixer with a best by date of 5/7/2014 so this must only be about two weeks old. Bright yellow color, great head. Aroma is earthy and herbal hops, weird. Flavor is also earthy hops, with an odd floral touch. This is hoppy but the hop profile is not something I really dig.

Poured out of the bottle into a sifter glass.

Appearance - Very light see through straw like color. Nice white head that doesn't last long at all.

Smell - Lots and lots of floral hops. Almost smells like a garden.

Taste - Light hoppy front that is quickly followed by a taste of flowers that you get from the smell.

Feel - Very easy drinking and lots of flavor left on your tongue.

Overall - While this beer did warm up and brought out lots of floral hops it was a bit off putting for me. Still a lot of flavors I enjoyed and very crisp beer.

Best by date of 5/13/14.

Appearance: Pours a light golden orange. Tons of bubbles rising to the top of the glass. One finger of white, lumpy head sits on top. Head very slowly builds up to two fingers. Lots of lacing as usual for an odell beer.

Smell: Floral, lavender, grapefruit rind. a slight dusty copper aroma is also present. Don't remember getting that copper smell in the previous wolf pickers I tried. "dustiness" kind clears up as the beer warms and gives way to some nice light hop bitterness. Love how the floral hops and citrus notes work together with this beer.

Taste: Follows the aroma, nice floral notes give way to light citrus fruity notes and then the floral flavors linger on the palate. Kind of a dusty finish as well, like described in the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Very good.

This came in a variety pack with 3 wolf picker pale ales. I remember the other two being much better than this one. That being said this was still a solid brew. The experimental hops used definitely have strong floral characteristics. If you like floral hops you will probably love this beer. A beer I would not mind seeing more often, along with the other two roots release beers from odell.
