5 Barrel - Pale Ale (5.2%) - O'Dell Brewing Co. (Colorado)
App: Pours a rich amber, with color similar to canned pumpkin. Very tight and creamy one finger head settles slow and even leaving high, dense lacing all around the glass.
Smell: Mild nose of citrusy hops, ornamental orange, buttery toffee from caramel malts. Bouquet is pretty normal. Pleasant and well balanced.
Taste: Herbal, sweet and a touch of piney hops are the focal point of this brew. Very slight hints of basil, thyme, and soil. A touch of lemony sorrel. Malt presence is forward, but complicated as to let the earthy subtleties of the beers hops really shine. Bitterness is assertive, but not as piney as some other APAs. This beer is pretty damned good.
Mouth: Creamy and full bodied, enough so to support acidity of the hops profile. Carbonation is pretty high which sort of lifts the heavy hops bitterness off your palate and lets their true flavors shine.
Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Snifter. 1/19/14
Serving type: bottle
