From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue VI:
The marketing is straightforward, they took the IPA style and made it bolder or American-style, and at 7.0 percent it's nearing the border of Double IPAs but not quite there. Clear weathered golden color, bright clarity and excellent head retention from the two-fingered head that crowns the top of this brew. Big time citric hop aroma and tangerine and clementine juice, with mint and herbs in the back of the nose. Impeccable smoothness from a deep, underlying carbonation that is most likely being slowed by a ton of hop oil. Medium body. So much hop flavor to go around, thankfully the bitterness does not kill the taste buds. Orange zest and spearmint come to mind. Sure the malt is there, a solid biscuity and slightly sweet foundation that is covered with hop flavor. Slightly dry and bitter finish with a faint earthy, herbal flavor.
Odell Brewing does a superb job brewing this beer, this one gives most West Coast IPAs a run for their hops. A must try for any hophead out there.
