A beautiful creamy pale foam with a classic deep yellow, almost a but cloudy on the pour. Upfront citrus a and herbal aromas are hard to miss. You know this beer is going to be excellent and it certainly does not disappoint. Lots of grapefruit and and other citrus flavors are neatly complemented by a generous hop surge that seems to mellow out the more you drink this beer. Being a strong IPA it is quite drinkable and the bitterness is well balances by some sweetness at the end. One of the better IPA's I have tried since it is so well balanced.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle about to go out of date. Perfect translucent orange color with just a touch of haze. Head dissipated instantly but the lacing is super thick. The smell is a bit lacking, maybe to do with its age. Not getting much more then some mild citrus and a bit of booze. Taste is fantastic, not too bitter, not too dank, not too fruity and most importantly to me, not too malty. A perfect combination that balances perfectly. It's not super carbonated but it doesn't sit flat on your tongue, quite smooth. Overall, I received this beer as an extra in a trade and kind of fell in love with it. Guess i'll be trading for this next time.

A - Pours a nice orange amber like color that is slightly hazy. Head is about 2 fingers worth with a semi aggressive pour and recedes from there, with very nice and frothy looking bubbles almost like soap bubbles. Very attractive lacing.
S - Amazing floral hop scent that overwhelms in the finest of ways. Pine, orange peel, lime zest, pineapple, grapefruit certainly come to mind. Absolutely enticing.
T - Moderate carbonation opens up the pallet to the amazing hops that burst in your mouth., The hops provide a nice tropical fruity flavor with the right amount of piney resin to balance it out. Finishes with an excellent drying bitterness. Drinks super well.
M - Crisp and carbonated (not too much) up front that immediately becomes bitter and drying.
O: One hell of a beer. It is semi session-able and is killer refreshing on a hot day. First beer i have picked up from them and man was I impressed. Looking forward to trying new beers from Odell Brewing.
