Poured from a 12oz bottle into a perfect pint.
Pours a deep, clear golden color with a big, rocky white head, clearer than I would have expected for the style. Head recedes slowly and leaves some nice lacing as it goes. Nose is lots of citrus hops with some herbal notes in the background, very aromatic. Taste, as one would expect, is lots of hops. Mostly citrus but really a little bit of everything as far as hops go. Tons of hop flavor and plenty of bitterness, but not so much that it is overwhelming or blocks out the grainy malt backbone. Medium bodied with a bit of a sticky finish. Dangerously drinkable considering it clocks in at 7%. This was the first beer I tried after moving to Colorado and has become maybe my favorite IPA. A fitting 100th review.

Best by date on the label, 4/15/2013. Odell gives the beer a 4 month shelf life.
The beer comes in an extremely hazy dark peachy orange with a creamy white head.
The aroma has sweet tropics of mango and peaches. Orange peel, a slight grainy character, floral, and then a bit of resinous pine in the back. A bready malt.
The beer follows with a less obvious tropical fruit flavor, but still a presence of mangoes and tropical fruit that is emphasized by a hint of a caramel sweetness. There’s a slight cereal grainy flavor that almost makes the beer taste like a pale ale. There’s grapefruit peel and floral lavender quality towards the end, along with lots of green grass. The beer is medium bitter throughout and then moves onto slight pine, grapefruit pith, and floral. A good amount of drying as well, which makes you want to dig in for more.
In general, the beer is the style I prefer, tropical, hop juice quality with a light malt body. The beer is a bit under 3 months old. In the end though, it has wonderful qualities, but lacks a final punch of hops for the beer to really be where I want it.
