4.59/5 rDev +7.2%
Bottle is dated 9/18/13B.
The pour reveals an orangey/copper beer with a finger of off-white head. Lacing clings but slowly tumbles down the glass. A steady stream of bubbles is noted rising to the top.
I get lots of grapefruit and citrus up front. Caramel has a note in there, then it's back to the citrus with a hint of pine for good measure.
The hops are amazing in this guy. There is a little malt sweetness on the tip of your tongue, then this beer plunges you into a world of hops. I get oranges and flowers after the initial sweetness, then grapefruit with a bit of pine on the end.
The mouthfeel on this is so smooth yet it isn't creamy. It coats most of the tongue, and has a dry finish but it is refreshing at the same time.

5/5 rDev +16.8%
Appearance: Poured a pale-ish, orange-yellow with an inviting, fluffy white top which held a sticky lace.
Smell: Perfectly sweet, citrus hops pour through the aroma along with a touch of other fruits and a tad bit of malts, all at a perfect strength.
Taste: The beginning lingered in a fruity citrus, somewhat malty, but introduced a flavorful bitterness with the hops; the middle sharply peaked the bitterness and sweetness back and forth like a trigonometric wave of sorts; the end tied everything back down purely into a subtle rind, sweet yet bitter, but still calming the tastes.
Mouthfeel: Perfectly carbonated, perfectly smooth, perfectly thick. . . just perfect.
Overall: The artwork stands out in my brain, even when I was too young to drink or too naive. That was all for a reason, this is a pinnacle of beers. If Odell has done anything special it's this: an IPA for anyone with even a slight sense of taste. It's a 6-pack I will come back to that will accompany one of those infinite moments of life. Cheers, Odell, for an untouched IPA.
