4.34/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

From a 355 ml bottle (best by June 1, 2013) into a tulip.

A-A slightly aggressive pour produces about two fingers of off-white head that leaves nice, oily lacing on the glass as you drink. The brew is clear, with some visible carbonation in the golden colored liquid.

S-The smell is a complex and pleasing mixture of floral citrus fruits (mostly orange) and spicy, lightly pine-scented hops. This brew is no hyped up hop bomb, though, you get a decent balance in the form of pale malts.

T-The flavor follows the smell pretty closely and also exhibits a nice balance of floral, lightly spicy hops and a decent-strength pale malt character. Hop dankness is mild and the finish is more peppery-orange than earthy-bitter, which I like.

M-The feel is slightly creamy with smooth carbonation and a hint of dank, oily hops. The finish is long-lasting.

O-This is a well-done IPA. I especially enjoy the balance between hop and malt. Many times you get a complete hop bomb, which is fine for what it is. Other times, you get both hops and malts, but they don't mesh well. Here, the hop flavors integrate quite well with the malt flavors to produce a tasty and great-smelling IPA. High marks are also deserved for a great mouthfeel.

4.4/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle about to go out of date.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.
