A- Solid orange copper color, very clear but slightly hazy. Big foamy white head, pretty dense and bubbly. Not much visible carbonation visible.

S- Good christ, that's some hops. Such a deep and rich hops smell, smells light years beyond what I the usual IPA smells like. Big time grapefruit, old pine resin, eye-burningly strong. Lighter bread malts provide a stable foundation for the towering piers of Hoptitude.

T- First off, despite it's full hops cone smell, the taste is not overpoweringly hoptacular. In fact, this has remarkable balance. Starts balanced and slightly malty, then suddenly the malt drops off the face of the earth and the hops spring to life., creating a rough bitter character akin to citrus and pepper. Interesting and certainly not a boring IPA, this is much more than I expected. A hearty swirl blends the flavors into one big bitter creamy joy.

M- Damn, spot on carbonation with a medium body and great smoothness and texture.

D- Not bad, I think I could drink one or two of these with little hops fatigue. Not an all day sipper for me (especially at a whomping 7% ABV!), but certainly a treat and a change up from my big-time malt beers. I totally dug this one.

The colour is gold, the liquid clear. The low head is warm white.

The smell is hoppy with lots of citric notes, but also a lot of honey. A bit dry. And very bitter.

The bitterness dominates the taste, but there are also lots of exotic fruits, among them grape fruits. The flavours are fresh and clean. The aftertaste is sweet with a fine bitterness and fruity notes of pineapples and bitter oranges.

The carbonation is strong; the liquid semi-smooth.

A very pleasant and full-flavoured American IPA.

Thanks goes out to jhammerly and Bitterbill for this brew.

Pours a nice slighlty cloudy golden orange color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger plus creamy off-white head, tons of nice sticky lacing to follow. The nose is hoppy, citrusy, piney, and some caramel. The taste is very hoppy, nice grapefruit flavor, and a little bit of pines to throw in, also some caramel. The finish is slightly bitter and dry. Medium body. Very drinkable, this is a fine example of a IPA, way to go Odell, highly recommended.
