one of the best colorado white ipas to come out yet. i think its the use of these perle hops, which have a combination of orchard fruit, maybe pear aroma, and a nice bright summery dry grassy character that make it the perfect compliment to robust wheat malt. this one has a golden glow, less white than others, more yellow, and has a luxurious pillow of white head on top which never dies. smells and tastes like an unfamiliar hop, obviously the perle is something new to my palate here, but i dig it hard. it reminds me of the first time i had a really mosaic forward beer, and couldnt really say why i liked it so much. its got elements of the noble region strains, but has a ton more fruit and alpha acid than most of those, so its the best of new and old world, and is just downright delicious in this wheat beer. bright summery finish, i think this is an excellent summer release from odell, but i would love to see it in sixers instead of the mixed 12 packs. i think this one would do really well for them, its so unique, and do decidedly not belgian, that i think a lot of folks would get behind it. i certainly wouldnt mind being in front of another pint right now!

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

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours an unfiltered golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus fruit and wheat. Citrus hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, and apricot. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass and spice. Pale malt with hints of wheat, grains, cracker, and biscuit. Pretty hop forward and juicy. A solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell, a nicely juicy and earthy hop driven taste with good notes of citrus and wheat. Upfront citrus hops with notes of grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, pineapple, and apricot. Solid presence of floral and earthy hops with some notes of grass and spice. Solid backing of bready malt with notes of wheat, grains, straw, cracker, and biscuit. A pretty solid wheaty IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Juicy and fairly drying on the finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a White IPA. Good citrus hop presence with a nice wheat twist.

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

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.

Appearance: Light gold with decent white head.

Smell: Grapefruit, lemon, wheat and some floral notes.

Taste: Strong wheat backbone with hop layers of grapefruit and lemon, as well as some spicy and floral notes. Lightly bitter.

Feel: Light to medium bodied, with a silky wheat mouthfeel. Not as effervescent or dry as hoped for.

Overall: This is a very hoppy wheat beer. I hate the White IPA moniker, as there is no way to tell if it has Belgian yeast or not. This one does not, but the wheat is very evident. Good beer overall, but the mix is not quite right.

Sampled on tap at the Odell tasting room. Poured clear golden light with nice white head and lacing. Fresh crisp citrus smell. Very refreshing taste- clean and well balanced. Nice citrus hop and bitterness. A good choice for summer heat. Too bad its not sold in six packs.
