Misc.: Best by Aug. 14, 2013
Poured a copper orange clear color with about 2-3 fingers of foamy white head. Lots of bubbles underneath. Tons of circular foamy lacing on the sides. Fantastic retention on the top the whole way down.
Smelled fantastic with mainly floral and citrus hops. Also got grapefruit and tangerine. Slight bitterness, but not overwhelming. Some light notes of lemon, lime and pine.
Tasted pretty close to the smell, but maybe not as strong. Immediately reminded me of a Manzanita IPA. Lemon more than grapefruit. Faint butter notes. Floral notes are noticeable as well. Very good overall.
Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.
Really enjoyed my second beer from Odells. I will be back for more.

A: Pours a clear copper/orange color. A dense, pillowing white head rises to over two fingers. Excellent retention, and rings of lace left all the way down the glass. This is a looker.
S: Very aromatic. Floral and grassy up front, light piny and tree sap aromas. A honey sweetness to balances everything out. I substantial, but not overpowering bitterness lingers.
T: Really well balanced here. Floral and grassy hops up front. That gives way to a lightly resinous character. Again, I get a honey sweetness which makes for a great balance. Lingering fruity flavor, like a honey do cantaloupe, and some bitterness. Well done.
M/D: A medium body with a good effervescent bite. Crisp carbonation and so clean. This drinks so much easier than the 7% would make me believe. With such a great balance this is so easy to drink.
This has always been one of the standard bearers from the style. I am not a hop head in the least, but the balance between the hops and light honey like sweetness is great. Really enjoyable, and highly recommended.
