On draft at the Odell Brewery - June 2013
A - Golden amber color, 1 finger of head, tons of lace
A - Nice aroma, big citrus fruit flavored hop aroma from the whole hops
T - Extremely hoppy pale ale, nice take on a traditional English style. Much better than a traditional english pale ale with the extra hoppy kick
M - Light bodied, light carbonation. Smooth
O - A very tasty pale ale. Well done

Poured on tap into a half pint nonic glass at Odell's tasting room in Fort Collins. From notes.
A very opaque and pale amber body, with a combination of fast and slow rising carbonation, particularly on one edge. A light soft off white collar is presented, not too large, but inviting.
Nose has a light grainy sense, hints of flour. A perhaps mild herbal hop is peaking through.
Taste hits with a hop pine at first in the mid palate, with a light lingering bitterness. Finishes clean, but also brings a bit of oil density from a hop angle. As it warms, hints of tea and orange perkalate all over, there's a chewy yeasty character to this beer also, kind of... "stanky?". Lively crisp carbonation matching the clean feeling.
Overall pretty solid pale ale and very drinkable too.

On-tap at the source itself, on to the beer:
Similar in appearance to Odell IPA in look, this pale ale is orange with yellow hues, but with head retention that isn't as extraordinary as the IPA. The nose is very balanced, leaning a little towards the malt side than the hop side. Floral, pine, and orange aromas brighten the senses. The theme of balance continues into the taste, where biscuit and caramel flavors make a good base for a splash of hops. Rather clean too. A good and drinkable pale ale (though how it compare to 5 Barrel Pale Ale is a mystery to me, as I have yet to try that beer).

Pours a golden amber with a nice foamy white head, constant effervescense of bubbles rising to the surface, and decent lacing. An bright, floral and sweet aroma; florals and a touch of some lemon from the dry hopping, sweet toffee and dough from the malt. Flavor was bright with the toffee, floral, and lemon playing off each other quite nicely. A nice creamy, active mouthfeel. Overall, a solid brew. As described by the Odell employee who took my order this was kinda like a dry hopped amberand I am glad she described it as such. In that light I was able to enjoy this far more than I would have were I to have though of this along the lines of a pale ale. It shares the brightness and crispness of a pale ale but flavor and aroma was all about this being a dry hopped amber, and a good one at that. Next time I stop by the brewery I might have to check out their Levity Amber to compare that fresh to this and see which one I prefer. As of now, my vote goes to this.
