It's Odell, so I had to pick one up. These guys do little wrong as far as I'm concerned.

From the pour I'm liking the looks of this beer. Pale golden in color with a steady, healthy carbonation and clean, yet slightly hazy appearance. The head is big, two-fingers thick, and is of the fluffy, chewy-looking variety. It persists for quite a while, settling into a quarter finger lace, with lace running up the side of the glass.

There's a nice, sweet maltiness on the nose that complements the undertones of citrus. Some piney, resinous hops catch my nose's attention to. I like the smell of this.

The taste loses me a bit. I felt a lot of promise on the nose and appearance, but there's something slightly disagreeable about the taste. The hops aren't nearly as present, nor is the sweet maltiness I was getting on the nose. It's much thinner in the body too. There's a bit of a toast-like taste and hint of the hops on the back end, but this is much more reminiscent of a pilsner to me. The beer has a light feel to it and thus is pretty refreshing, but I'm not getting as much flavor as I'd like.

I have to say as I quickly chugged the last of this beer, it's really easy to drink. I could throw back a sixer no problem, I think. So it could easily be another in my arsenal of BBQ beers. I'll have to take note of that.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle with a enjoy by date of 7/5/14; into a tumbler.
Appearance - sunset orange, dancing carbonation bubbles; a thin white head that leaves adequate lace.
Smell - interesting; citrus, primarily grapefruit from the bottle; grass and pine from the glass.
Taste - strong hops upfront with an excellent malt backbone that levels it out!
Feel - the hops start off sharp, but the added complexity of malts gives this a well balanced feel!
Overall - another solid Odell offering at a reasonable price!

On tap at the brewery, 16oz snifter

A – Translucent and bright, bright yellow in color wit an equally bright white, tall head.

S – Bright, sweet, tangy and fresh. Lemon, citrus. Dry here, not overtly sweet.

T – Dry again, pale malts come first, grain and light bread notes. Bright citrus notes come through and an unexpectedly peppery finish steps in. Citrusy, almost lemon-pepper like.

F – Body is light, carbonation is on the high side, dry and peppery finish, quite nice.

O – Wonderful pale ale, very bright on the hops, but balanced with a nice pepper note, with crisp carbonation. Very unique hop profile here.
